Velvet Verbosity: Misbehave

I used to be a man about this town when I was younger. Before my wife I had a couple of girlfriends but when Sandy got pregnant my father told me I should marry her so I did.

We had a good life. We raised four kids and were happy.

I used to drink some but after our second child Sandy told me to quit, so I did.

Sandy passed away last year and after that my daughter told me to start walking more so I do.

I’m an old man. I don’t misbehave, just do as I am told.

  1. Well written. The repeat of ‘so i did’ is very effective. I can’t help feeling sorry for him. He seems to have gone through life making very few decisions for himself.


  2. I like this twist on the theme of misbehaving! The character may have done what was expected of him but his character was quite unexpected for this theme.
