March 2019 SOLC–Day 26
A huge thank you to Two Writing Teachers for all that they do to create an amazing community of writers and a safe, welcoming space to write, learn, share and grow.
They come with increasing frequency now. Bold. Intrusive. I’m always on the lookout, determined to be the first to spot them. My eyes scan the familiar terrain, examining the likely spots, determined to oust any intruders. I cock my head one way then another, intent on my mission.
Wait! Is that one?
I lean in even closer. Staring intently. Focused and determined.
Not on my watch!
Yes. Right there. Just barely in sight.
Sneaky little devil!
With my implement of destruction in hand, I lean in closer and, with a swift, careful movement, I deftly grip the intruder.
Aha! Got ya!
I pull. And pull! It holds firm, resistant….until…finally! Success!
There in my tweezers is one thick stubbly hair, plucked from my jawline.
I thrust it viciously into the trashcan.
Victory is mine!
