      "Pinky promise?"
      "Sure"
      They link pinky fingers. Then one went to touch thumbs and the other one went to bite her thumb. The end result was his thumb on her nose.
      Giggling "what are you doing?"
      "Apparently petting your nose," he starts to move his thumb in a circular motion on the tip of her nose, "what were you trying to do?"
      "Bite my thumb to finish the pinky promise."
      "I've never heard of that. I touch thumbs."
      "Why?"
      "To complete the promise and it's supposed to symbolize an unbreakable vow since circles are typically harder to break. Why would you bite your thumb?"
      "That's the way I was taught." She thinks a bit further causing her to cock her head to the left and furrow her brow slightly, "I guess it means I would rather eat my own thumb than break my promise to you." she turns red as the blood rushes to her cheeks, and she giggles nervously.
      "Really?"
      "Really what?"
      "You would really rather eat your own thumbs than break this promise?"
      "I would rather eat my thumbs than break any promise to you."
A discussion with a friend about how pinky promises were the "unbreakable vows" of childhood and how they should still be upheld even though we are way too old for them. then we discovered that we promise differently.

nameless, descriptionless characters again.

it was written awhile ago, opinions appreciated.

we kiss our own thumbs, like the promise is sealed with a kiss! I love this though!

aww. Pinky promises are the only way that my sister and I keep our deals. And they're usually silly ones, like "I'll give you a hug if you get me a glass of water."

whatever else i have posted here and a lot more on another account on this site, but it would take time shifting through bad writing to find something worth reading on the other account.
