Tuesday's Tantrum (Mine not Shorty's)

I feel like having a tantrum, but unfortunately being over 21 it has not been acceptable for more than a decade. So I will merely rant and get the frustrations out. Join me, I'll will try to keep the obscenity out of the picture.

Last week was one of confusion. We managed to get Shorty to her appointment on time because the driver showed up an hour before in order to pick up those after us on his schedule. He was polite and determined to do his job. 

The appointment went well, we don't go back for a year unless the baby gets sick. She got a day out of school courtesy of the doctor. We waited thirty minutes for the return ride home, still no problems. Later that day the baby developed tummy issues and ended up with a four day weekend from school. 

A 'friend" moved to a new house and she has forgotten who helped her and her oldest son when they had no where to live. She has Chron's this I understand but when she is well she cannot follow through with anything because there are more important things and people in her life.

I can remember inconveniencing myself every morning to go sit with her because there was a time when she could not be alone. I had a million things of my own to do but I put them on the back burner to keep her from being alone. 

Since we got here everything and everyone else has been more important than we are. It just goes to show that once people get what they've always wanted they forget everyone that no longer has anything to offer.

Good bye, it's your life and your loss.

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
The word is regress, this piece comes in at 65 of the 75 word limit. For the official rules visit the M3 blog and join in the fun.
