I’m the one who should be relegated to the 9th circle of hell — oh, I meant the 7th circle. This region of hell is for those who perpetrate violence against old people. After two days of tirade against the old lady who charges me with forcing her down a flight of steps with my help, I have shed my defenses. I went through the stages of feelings and came out on the other end, which includes the understanding of where she might be coming from. This means putting myself in her shoes (orthopedic). She’s merely being proactive, yes, in gathering information regarding this farce. No? Well, God forbid, some slowly developing crack in her ass should develop as we both landed on our asses when we fell – no, no, another crack — I assume that she has one crack already. This would be very expensive to repair. So she might have to sue the organization for medical coverage. Yeah, that’s, it probably.
Seriously, I hope she’s okay. It can be dangerous to fall when you’re old. A lot of old people go rapidly down hill after falling – oh God I’m scared now. What if she, should… A-anyway, this incident was educational. I learned about the dangers of helping a stranger, and I learned how my own self-centered fear had me imagining this poor woman in a boiling pot of oil.
Auntie Sandee kills old ladies.
I’ve still got the pot of oil on standby if you need it.
As soon as my ‘understanding of her side’ subsides, I might just need it! Thanks!
:)!!! I am sure she is and will be alright
Oh gee, I hope so. I’ll try not to dwell on these dark visions…
This octogenarian is consuming too much of your mental time. You must exorcize her from your mind. Then write a story about her. 🙂
I do hope this is the last chapter of my focus on this woman. Who knows, maybe she will find herself on the pages of a short story!
I know I’d read it. 🙂
Thanks Carrie! I thought after responding to your first comment that I should’ve added that I need to be working on getting my Kindle book made into hard copies — my next step is to do readings in the city, and that all would keep me pretty preoccupied from thinking about the little ‘ol lady from hell! Lol!
Sounds dumb to be shocked by anything, but I can’t believe she is filing against you!!! OMFG!!!! Come to the 8th circle – vengeance – it suits you just as well & there’s lots of fun folks in there (such as me & half my haiku circle). Can’t WAIT till your book is in hardcopy!!!
Hope SHE passes, if you catch my meaning…
Your haiku circle sounds hot! My book will be in hardcopy as soon as I get the patience to go through the process. Thanks MM! Hugs and kisses to you!
thanks for sharing your fears sandee, try not to let the old bag fill your thoughts too much though petal ♥
Thanks Kyle — I try not to get too pathetic when I think about it. Your kind words help!
