Here is Julia’s prompt for 100-Word Challenge for Grown-Ups:
I’ve been having problems with a very sore wrist for a couple of months. Nothing I do seems to help and of course as I spend quite a lot of my day at a PC, rest is out of the question. Just to make sure there wasn’t something else I could do, I’ve been to see a physio and he did some acupuncture on it.
So (you’ve guessed it I’m sure) the prompt is:
…the points were sharp…
The points were sharp, and the arguments barely understandable, as I sat on the floor in a friend’s home, surrounded by conservatives in full voice. Why am I sitting here? We’d known each other for over thirty years, and while we clashed at times over politics, I believed until tonight that this friend respected me enough not to put me in so unbalanced a situation. More quickly than I would have guessed, my discomfort turned to anger. I don’t need this, I thought. But I refuse to fight with conservatives over politics. I stood and walked to the door, thinking way too sharp for me.
