“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! 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.

    This is wonderful take on this prompt

  2. Love it, a great little story using the prompt well. I’ve run into the sea in winter, that’s shock to the system!!

    • They usually have a Jan 1st fundraiser dip here for the RNLI, but with Covid it didn’t happen this year. Last time I went swimming was in a heated pool in NZ in 2010.
