Say What?

03 Oct

Mister babbles as the doctor examines his ears.

“I can’t promise that it won’t turn into an ear infection. He is really congested,” she pauses while I grab at his nose with a tissue, “but right now his ears look good.”

She instructs us to call if anything changes and, with a quick goodbye, ushers us out the door.

“Buh-bye,” Mister repeats.

She stops her jog to the next exam room and comes back.

“Did you say buh-bye?” She asks Mister.

“Buh-bye,” He repeats.

“He says that already?” she asks. “He’s so young.”
She gives him a pat. “Good man.”

Luke’s dialogue got us some personal attention at the doctor. What do you think the benefits are of dialogue in writing?

    Dialog is a make or break point for me. I want to connect with the characters and I do that best by what they say. Cute story too!
