Michael is the host of Sunday Writing Prompt
This Sunday consider the notion of ‘tormented’.
For you what does it conjure up?
Can it be aspects of your life, either personal or spiritual?
Go where the prompt leads you and have fun.
Why do you torment me like this?
“I know you never put on weight whatever you eat but I am not like you and I gain weight even by looking at a nice plate of food. Why then you have to eat these goodies in front of me, knowing very well that I am on a strict diet?”
My younger brother grinned at my pained expression and offered me his plate full of French fries, “here, why don’t you have a few? Maybe you feel less grumpy after you’ve had something nice to eat instead of all the lettuce you’ve been eating. You are not a rabbit you know!”
I turned aside his offer with a scowl. ” You know I want to lose 15 pounds before my birthday, and this will make me lose all the progress I have made till now”
“Come on, a few fries won’t hurt. It’s not like you’re losing weight anyway!”
With this parting shot, he disappeared from the living room, and I was left there marveling at the unfairness of life and the audacity of siblings.
( An almost true account of my teen years. I’ve been plagued with weight issues all my life and my younger brother could eat anything!)
