I’ll Be Damned… Day 15 April PAD

I’ll Be Damned…

My father was a

master in the art of

using curse words…

Damn or Damned

or Dammit were

sprinkled liberally

through his sentences

along with an occasional

HELL…

I inherited his ability

to use curse words

with finesse…

Although my words

run a bit more

colorful than an

occasional DAMN

or HELL

Of course…

A proper Southern

Lady did(does) not

use such language

I was always told

Well..

I am Southern

Never to be mistaken

for Proper

But…

A Lady non the less…

The older I get

the more colorful my

language becomes

Not that I don’t

have a vast vocabulary

But…

As my Mama always

told me,

“Sometimes you just

have to cuss!”

Well, I’ll be

DAMNED…

Mama was always right!

Today’s prompt asked us to look back to previous writing for an adjective to use for the prompt … I seem to use the word ‘damn’ much too often. Perhaps I need to do the reverse of what Mark Twain suggested!

Flowing Well

Flowing Well

Squealing with delight
I ran to the well
 
Sitting in the 
Church yard
It was a 
point of pride
 
The cold clear water
continually bubbling
from the deep underground
had been there for 
centuries
 
Holding me in his
strong arms
Daddy lifted me 
to the water 
 
Drinking deep
I wondered what
it would be like
to dive into that
huge bubbling well
and see what was
on the other end
