Bad Behavior

You were so truculent during our family vacation
Nothing was good enough for you
You were trouble from the very start
Your complaints were not at all cogent
Your manner was intrusive
Your actions disruptive
When we get home
You will be punished
No trick-or-treating
No gathering your favorite candy
No Starburst candies for you


Written for these daily prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (truculent), My Vivid Blog (vacation), The Daily Spur (trouble), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (cogent), Your Daily Word Prompt (intrusive), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (starburst).

    That sucks! I remember when my kids were little and my sister heard me “threatening” some punishment and she said “just remember that whatever you say is punishment, you can definitely go through with”. That’s like saying “you will never trick or treat again!” Well, really? for the rest of someone’s life? Lol, you just got me thinking.

    No Starbursts for anyone in Australia. They stopped producing them ☹️
