Reader's Diary #2018- Maggie Bolitho: Same Old

There's something about Flash Fiction, perhaps that their length is typical of jokes and punchlines, that makes twist endings particularly common.

I'm not 100 percent sold on the twist of Maggie Bolitho's "Same Old" because I questioned for a second that a character was actually a dog and maybe I'm an idiot, but I did appreciate the tone (lightly dark and funny is always good) and that Bolitho shared the writing prompt that led to the story in case we want to play along at home.
