Slight

The Daily Post Prompt today is Slight.

I haven’t been doing the DPP for a while as we’ve been busy outside and the pensitivity101 gas bag has been in full throttle anyway.
However, walking the dog on my own this afternoon for the third time (and fourth poo, which isn’t in the slightest anything to do with what follows), I came up with this.

She was a slight woman with the misfortune of having a rather pointy nose. If you turned her sideways, she resembled a zip and in a strong wind, she was likely to be blown slightly off her feet.
Her name was Sonya Wright and in her youth she was often teased  ‘It’s On Yer Right’ if she’d misplaced anything. Sometimes because of her nose, her classmates would slight her appearance which she usually bore with good humour, sometimes joining in to give the impression she didn’t care in the slightest.
In later years, she became fixated on illusionists and magicians with their sleight of hand, and set about perfecting her own form of the art.
She became 
one of the best pickpockets in the city, but to look at her, you wouldn’t have any idea that she’d pinched your wallet or your watch with the slightest touch.

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.
