This week’s words: Amazing Berry Ask Drive Pout Year Watch Apoplectic- extremely angry; furious Sweep Mortal Cut Off
Kat Berry was an aggressive woman. On any day, it didn’t take much to stir her ire.
It was amazing she had lived as long as she had considering the number of people she had irritated over the years.
It was a mistake, I discovered, to ask her for a lift anywhere. Driving brought out the demons in her.
If any discretion was noticed, she would pout, her brain engaged in what insult she might utter totally unaware of the consequences.
One day about a year ago, I sat in the car with her and watched as she went into an apoplectic rage when an innocent old lady had the hide to cut her off. Her fury was frightening. Her language enough to make a wharfie blush.
With a sweep of her arm, she proceeded to berate the woman who I’m sure realised the mortal state she had placed herself in. Had the lights not turned green at that point I’m sure Kat Berry would have been out of the car and at the poor woman’s throat.
