The Writing Prompt: Nomad in 68 words

“How’d the interview go?” This was only my friend’s third interview from fifty applications.

“I got an offer.”

She didn’t sound thrilled. “What’s the position?”

“Elementary SPED.”

Uh-oh. “Are you taking it? You don’t even like littles.”

“But it’s special ed, and that’s one of my best strengths.”

Ah, the siren song. “Another move, Miss Nomad.”

“I’ve always been a gypsy.”

I have a bad feeling about this.
