Day Two A to Z Blog Challenge: B is for Babbling Babs

Just wanted you all to know right now I’m lopping hair. So tonight I’ll be able to make rounds to other blogs. You all have fun and great day!

Below is a line from Lila’s mother, Babs.

Mom squeezed herself through the gap between him and the door. “You really worry me.” She pushed herself into the room, racing toward me. “Were you talking to another imaginary person?” Her eyes shot to the scissors. “What are you doing? Are you cutting up your wrists?” She squinted her gray eyes at me, cocking her heavily painted left brow. “You’ll do anything to stop this wedding. Won’t you?”

    1. She's very persistent, that Babs. She'll fight you to the bitter end to get her way.

    1. Thank you. And the picture is something I found on the web and borrowed it. It was in one of those group image things that you can download to your computer.

  9. When I was doing the read through for you, I often found myself grinding my teeth about Babs. That's one of the reasons the character works well!
