100 Word Wednesday: Week 18 – Personal


Image Credit: Felix Russel;-Saw

After twenty-three years of tortured marriage, I took my family by surprise when I received my first tattoo.  I’d lived a life of servitude, jumping when told, serving when directed ridiculed for my opinions and ultimately abandoned for a younger model.

It was idle curiosity when I went into the parlour and had a small rose inked on my ankle. I hated pain. I but I found the ordeal uplifting, cathartic you might say.

Now I have Yvonne, a private tattooist, with whom I feel relaxed and confident. I am working on designs, pertinent statements, for my personal bits.

    ???? LOL – this last line is enough to raise and eyebrow or two!
    Definitely leaves room for the imagination and certainly a well written tale Michael 😀

    I love a story about a strong woman (although upon second read, I suppose it could be a man — I guess I read what I wanted!). Lovely as always — thank you for joining us again this week 🙂
