Daily Prompt: History of Language
Write a piece of fiction describing the incident that gave rise to the phrase, “third time’s the charm.”
Who needs fiction. I have a real-life example …
My parents were married for 4 years, then had a little baby. It was a boy. Ew.
Four years later, they had another. Another boy.
This time, it took longer to get over the grief of now having two sons, but five years later, they had another baby.
A girl. Me.
Third time’s the charm.
