“You’re an idiot!” Sean spouted, brushing dirt from his pants.

“Hey, I did the best I could!” Jake shouted.

“Yeah, right! Biggest party of the year, Brit’s summer spree, the place where are the cool kids gather and what do you do? You make us look stupid!” Sean said storming  off.

“Hey, I practiced that spell over and over! It’s not my fault that I said tree instead of spree!” He yelled, chasing after his friend.

    Magical sat nav? Nice one!

  2. Gabriella says:

    Lovely and funny in a few words!

  3. zookyworld says:

    Good thing I don’t know magical spells — I’d be making mistakes like this all the time! A fun story with the importance of just one word.

  4. Joe Owens says:

    A slip of the tongue can mean quite the difference.

  5. I think Jake must not have been Hogwarts trained. Got to watch those unaccredited on-line colleges!

  6. Hi Turnip,
    I have a feeling Jake and Sean may have been reading too much Harry Potter. Good dialog and you did it in only 76 words! Ron

  7. Gotta watch the “p”s and “q”s on spells!

  8. Oops, that’s one way to ruin a party. Cute.

    You have to be careful what you wish for. The wish fairy is very literal. 🙂

  10. Indeed a small mistake with dire consequences 😉
