Birches

The Rogue Speaks:

Yikes!!  Saturday Centus really crept up on me this time!  The Ryder Cup is on, and you know I can't miss that!  While we were lounging on the couch with our coffee, the children were playing games in the office.

Plus, we took the dogs to the beach at low tide so they could run off some of their energy.  Then, Mulligan was so filthy from trying to catch fish in all the seaweed, that when we got home, I had to give him a bath in the tub!  I have some great photos of playtime and the beach, but Blogger is being hateful, and won't let me publish them!!

Jenny's prompt, which is in bold type, is sure to produce some interesting posts.  We only have 106 words, including the prompt, and this is what I came up with:

Birches
 
 
“But you’re like Frost’s “Birches,” bending, but never breaking.”
 
“Don’t try to pull that crap on me!  I have bent as much as I intend to!  We’ve had this conversation before, and I thought I made myself perfectly clear.  I’ve had enough of your lies, your promises.  Face it!  I’m way smarter than you, and you’ve never gotten away with anything for very long.  This is it, pal!”
 
“What do I have to do to get you to believe me?  It won’t happen again!  You know I love you!  I really do!  I’m done with her.”
 
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you break!  I broke.  Get out!”
 
 
 
Please remember that I am now posting on Mondays as well.  This started out as an art blog, so my Monday post will be about artsy things.  I hope you will mark your calendars and come back to visit, and leave a comment!!

Oh, how I wish I could be so strong!
You certainly brought a lot of emotion into 106 words!

No question this is a strong piece nicely done.

Except for the beach your day sounds a bit like mine too! We had a high of 80 today and I took one of my dogs outside (the one who fears the doggie groomer) and she is 13 years old....and she got a bath outside too! Great SC I could even hear the door slam! :)
I'll be back Monday...hopefully earlier...my work schedule is booming!

Great job with the 106 words. Loved loved it!

No sense watching the Ryder today - the US has too big of a lead -looks like we really don't need Tiger to make a good show!

Enjoy your day.

I so love visiting your blog! I can play and enjoy the sights before I get to the meat! Great story...a little strong. How's your sugar intake? I find it makes me strong and a tiny bit angry... Still, you have many great talents and I thank you for sharing them!

Hi Miss Judie!

I am reading current to backward on SC!

And I'm gonna catch up, by golly.

It sounds so fun to walk on the beach!

I can even imagine the sea weed smell!

No garage sale this week!

I'm hoping for next weekend!
