“The trouble with you is that you have no individuality or spontaneity. You bury your head in the clouds and follow wherever others will lead.”
Mavis turned her back on him and looked out across the water.
Roger continued walking away……. towards the others who were equally as dull as he was.
Look at them, she thought.
Dressed the same, all clones without a unique thought between them.
May as well wear boxes on their heads.
Then she laughed.
It echoed off the rock face and shattered the silence.
She kicked off her shoes, stripped down to her underwear and charged into the water regardless of the cold, shrieking in shock mingled with glee. It was great to be alive!!

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.
