Three things she told me NEVER to do

Title:  SHE SAID NEVER…

  1. Talk to strangers.
  2. Sit on the toilet seat.
  3. speak up in the presence of adults, unless spoken to first. (Implied not ‘told’)

Let’s examine the NEVERS:

#1. Talk to strangers? If one is lost, you must ask a stranger how to get home.

#2. Sit on the toilet seat. – I TOTALLY agree with this one ~ Never !

#3. Speak up in the presence of adults. – Totally disagree. If I never speak up in the presence of adults, the lesson learned is my value is unimportant and it’s better to remain invisible.

The preceding was a prompt from my latest Writing Workshop with Victoria Fann.

I thoroughly enjoy writing prompts and what comes when I let go. Below is another reply to this same prompt, that manifested itself a few days later.

Title: THREE FEMALE GHOSTS

Who proclaimed the following:

  1. You can’t get up!
  2. You can’t leave!
  3. You can’t go out!

Response to these three

In bed I lay

exhausted

and annoyed

tired of three rules

tired of three rants

no longer frightened

three ghosts now abandoned

for a life beyond the darkness

with no more ghosts or rants

response to these three
