Saturday Centus time, a themed writing meme. The challenge is to write 100 words to add to the prompt started by Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.
The writing prompt is in (bold) itallics...
I bought one of those cheesy DVD’S Carmella, my therapist, suggested. “I am good enough” it says “and dog gone it people like me.” or something to that effect.
So I do as I’m told and look into the mirror and say those goofy sentiments till I’m ready to hurl the mouthwash bottle at the person looking back.
"Things change" Carmella says "and people change. You can escape your past and make a new start”.
Her face reddens and her nostrils flair when I always reply “ and objects in the rear view mirror are closer than they appear" as I hand her the check. “Same time next week?” she asks.

You can run, but you can't hide....

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
