TMAT120 : May 2018

Welcome to May 3.  

Today’s prompt is:  Tell me a tale about a defining moment in your life.

We’d argued, yet again, only this time I didn’t back down.
I can’t even remember what triggered it all off to be honest.
The jelly and trifle, including glass dish, got rammed in my face. It hurt, but tasted OK and I didn’t waste a drop.
She wasn’t so fortunate. I  raised my hand and slapped her.
Her face stayed put, but her jaw went sideways.
She couldn’t speak.
I tried not to laugh.
Mum went white, and with Dad took her to the hospital.
I sat down and cried.
The bruise was interesting to explain to anyone who asked.
She may have started it, but I sure as hell finished it.
And learned to keep my temper in check.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is excellent, and I can see why this would be a game-changer.
