It’s been a hectic week, so I’m coming to this weeks ‘100 Word Challenge For Grown Ups‘ a little late. I see that a number of people have already posted their stories, so I’m off to read them. The prompt for this week is ‘Wednesday’:
I can’t forgive my parents. I’ve tried, but then every day I’m reminded of what they did to me, how they have blighted my life. What makes parents do these terrible things? Is it that they are blinded by the moment, so wrapped up in themselves and the occasion, that they don’t think straight? My parents aren’t unkind. They are both educated, intelligent people, not easily swayed by currents trends and foolish fashion. What then happened to them 23 years ago? Why, on that momentous occasion of my birth, did they decide to call me Wednesday? What were they thinking?
