#MicroMondays — A Pounding

07A18D15-3FE6-47F8-8EA6-F2870BB4F0B6“How did your meeting go?” Tom’s wife asked when he walked through their front door that evening.

“It could hardly have been a bloodier beginning,” Tom responded.

“I assume you’re talking figuratively, not literally,” Anne said.

“Duh,” responded Tom sarcastically. “Although I do feel like I took a real pounding.”

“I’m really sorry,” Alice said. “Is there anything you can do to salvage things with the client?”

“Yeah,” said Tom. “I could quit my job.”


This week’s MicroMondays challenge is to craft a 75-word post using a line taken from Malala Yousafzai’s book, I Am Malala. The line is “It could hardly have been a bloodier beginning,” and it must be used verbatim within the post.
