Weekend Writing Prompt #105–Denial

Denial in 77 words

If you tell me that denial is a river in Egypt, I’ll laugh and walk away. I understand your desire to make this kind of joke.  You’re a fan of the classic radio shows. You loved it when the contents of  Fibber McGee’s closet spilled out. You secretly want to find a wife who is as ditsy as Gracie Allen pretend to be on the Burns and Allen show. Do you understand that it was all fantasy?
