cushion


I'll show'em. I'll show'em. Non-believers. A crank, they all say. I'll prove it! That crack in the ceiling the shape of Colonel Sanders. Right there! Wait! It's not there. Gone. It was. It was. I need more light. I'll show'em who's a wing nut.
"What do you want, Hilda?"
"Are you about done in there, Madam? There's two gentlemen at the door".
"Who?"
"They say they'll keep you where it's nice and quiet, Dear".
"Oh, let me be".
"And they have nice cushioned....chairs...and rounded corners".

Love the lines, "I need more light. I'll show'em who's a wing nut." Very clever take.

She does look a bit unbalanced, doesn't she?

Great take.

Very brilliant take on the prompt. Come to think of it she does look determinedly mad. Aren't we all at some point? lol
