SoCS — Idle Threat


“I’m gonna tear you limb from limb!” the snearing bully yelled at his intended victim.

“Go right ahead and try. Give it your best shot!” cackled the snake.

This very short, yet poignant (?) post is for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday from Linda G. Hill. The prompt is to write a post using the word “limb.”

      I was occasionally a target, but I was mostly able to talk or joke my way out of a beat down.

          That’s how I learned the power of words…and humor. Great distractions from life’s perils.

          I’m not sure how I can help. You probably know more about this matter than I do.

    Very clever. I wasn’t bullied. Others mistook my quiet for seething stuck up bitch you don’t want to engage with. I can’t imagine why.
