Donald the Introvert

Donald walked the last three blocks home alone. He didn’t mind being alone, in fact he liked it. He thought of what he would do when he got home. He would tell his mother he needed to study and build a fort in his room.

He didn’t think of it as lying because to him studying often meant being alone with his thoughts and his grades were good so his mother didn’t nag him.

He could play with his Legos in his fort without anyone bothering him. Donald liked to build things like walls and forts. They kept people out.

  1. Donald likes to build walls… they keep people out… uh-huh. And seeing one’s own interpretation as truth–which other people might perceive as lie–spot on. But maybe I’m interpreting too much into your clever story. 🙂

  2. There’s nothing better than a fort to keep people out. They’re the best. Every kid has to experience them. I think I need an adult fort, really. I enjoyed your story, Dawn.

  3. At least he’s busy using his imagination. He might one day be a successful architect. Not all children are alike. My son preferred reading a book to watching TV when he was young. Good story, Dawn. well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
