99 word prompt : toilet

Two on a Rant

In 1950, Alexander whined, “But, Mom…”

“Not until we find a toilet!” she said, marching toward her target location. 

“No!” he yelled, running to the toy section.

An 8 year old was so predictable.

She rushed to a stall, cursing the day she was forced to marry at 44, relieved when Alexander couldn’t be found, happy to lose the husband who had a heart attack over his son’s loss.

She hadn’t expected the couple who’d bought him to die in a car accident, or to be reunited with her son, now 20.

Like a toilet, he could be useful.
