FOWC with Fandango — Repress

Fandango has given us REPRESS as our word prompt today.

I am very expressive, and some people say if you tied my hands behind my back, I’d be quiet.
This is one of the reasons I’m not keen on surprises. If I don’t like something or am disappointed, I am usually unable to repress my true feelings, and in so doing, would upset or offend someone who had done something special for me. This in turn would make me very sad, something else I would not be able to keep hidden.

I would hate to live in a world where your feelings are permanently repressed, where you are not allowed to express yourself, and where you have to conform to what others tell you.
Equilibrium is a 2002 film which depicts such a world, where any emotion is illegal under penalty of death. I hated it.

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.

    What a strange concept — not expressing emotion. Of course, one tries not to laugh when another person falls flat on their bottom or the like.
    You are one of those who doesn’t need to learn to swim. Just shouting for help would have you doing it! 🙂
