Prompt: Ampersand

Callie’s Thing

"You think I should get what tattooed on my ass?"

"It was just a thought. Let’s think of something else."

Evan eyed me quizzically. "Why would you suggest that?"

"I've told you before, punctuation turns me on."

"That was serious, Callie? I assumed it was a cute joke."

"Oh." I felt so stupid.

"I mean, I’m not freaked out or anything. Everyone has their ‘thing.’ Yours isn’t that weird...."

"You really mean it"

"Don’t worry, honey." He put his arm around me. "But I’m not getting an apersand tattoo," he added.

I consider. "Have you ever heard of the interrobang?"
