100 word Wednesday 16th January

Bikurgurl has given us this picture by T. Chick McClure to work with this week.


The evidence was placed in front of her.
‘How do you explain this?’
She flushed to the roots of her hair, remaining silent.
‘We don’t expect this kind of behaviour from our staff. ‘
She opened her mouth, then thought better of it.
The Principal took her glasses off and sat back in her chair.
‘Look,’ she said. ‘I can’t be seen to have an opinion on this, but because of the high profile you’ve generated, cannot allow it to go unnoticed. Next time you pull a sickie for this kind of stunt, make sure you’re either unrecognisable or not photographed.’

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.

    WOW! SO powerful!! It’s amazing how threatening women can be — to those in power, those who do not have the words, feel the power to advocate {for themselves and others}….and for those in power to try to suppress our Freedom of Speech, our Right to Demonstrate…THIS is how the patriarchy continues to allow inequality to be pervasive in our global society.

    Thank you so much for sharing this powerful piece with us!
