The Violet Hour

Your angry words: a fuse that just won’t catch.  I’m too damn tired to fight tonight.  The bedtime story I’m reading our son is ripped from my hands and tossed aside.  He’s the four year old, but you’re the one who’s being childish.

You storm off.  I retrieve the book and read, like nothing happened.

Here are my fifty-five words for G-Man's Friday 55.  Head on over and see what others had to say this week, and maybe give the F55 a shot yourself.

Good job in capturing the moment.

Ouch, the four-year-old grown man strikes again.

Nicely done.

Pheromone Girl said...

Months and months and months

Jinksy said...

55 words with bite... Thank you.

Annabelle said...

well those 55 were a shot to the gut.

well written, extremely so, but they made me hurt for you none the less.

ive spent some time in that world, i don't envy your perspective.

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

If you don't feel it fuel, the fire will soon burn out. Tight 55!

Linc said...

This goes deep, too much so to be comfortable. I suppose even those places must be visited every now and then. Thank you.

Monkey Man said...

Sounds like someone needs a time out.

Steve Isaak said...

Relatable, good write (was a stepfather in a previous marriage: interesting times).

Rainbow said...

Oh girl an awesome post but my heart goes out to you. Sometimes the adults need lessons in growing up.

Katherine Krige said...

I just hope that the lessons learned are not how to treat a lady for the little one. Too many victims in your 55 my dear. Peace to you.
