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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
