This is a daily prompt from WP, it will fit here better here, I think than my main silly blog.

The prompt was:Write about the last disagreement you had with a friend or family member — from their perspective.

“It was just a joke!”,  I screamed.

Although, I knew my mom had a certain claim to respect, I always thought we could joke about anything.

Maybe I had gone too far, her point was valid, you probably shouldn’t allude to your mom as an idiot.

My apology wasn’t enough I gather, because she insisted on lecturing me and nagging me about how I was wrong.

I felt bad enough couldn’t she just let the thing go? Apparently not.

She asked if I would have used that term when describing my Grandmother.

I vehemently spit out one word, “NO.”

She stated up again, “Well, then you should…”

I cut her off in mid- sentence getting real tired of her nagging.

I swore and stomped down stairs.

She must have complained to my Dad, because it wasn’t thirty-seconds later and he came down.

I was already seething and so I laid into him.

Much to my surprise he remained calm and talk the things over.

He defended my mom, of course, that was only natural.

I gained some respect for my dad  and I understand his points, although I probably won’t tell my mom this, I’m going to try harder to respect her.

She probably doesn’t know how much I get upset with myself when I hurt her.

Wish I could tell her.
