The chair dominated the small room. They made me sit on that chair, while they circled, circled, circled like sharks. They wanted to know where I put it. I wasn’t going to tell. They couldn’t make me.

They thought that they could intimidate me, but they didn’t understand that I couldn’t be intimidated. Whatever they did to me me, I would never crack.

The light above me was hot. Sweat dotted my upper lip.

Then they unleashed the worst torture known to man: they took the pacifier from the baby’s mouth. “I’ll tell you! Please make it stop! The t.v. remote is in the clothes hamper!”

(No actual picture available, so picture this: a frazzled mom sitting on a chair while her children and husband make a ring around her chair. It isn't such a terrible thing to limit tv time, right? ;)


  1. Nope, not at all ...sometimes a mom's gotta do what's best for her family! I can picture it way too well! nice job!

  2. Hahahaha! What a hoot! Just give it to 'um and go have a nice soak with bubbles and candles! What can it hurt???

  3. All three of mine were addicted to their binkies, I so totally have been there. Tee-hee, I got a good chuckle out of the visual. Thanks!

  4. This is funny but too true. I did hide the remote once because I was so sick of hubby flipping constantly. He nearly tore up the room hunting for it...and was sore about it being gone for what...12 mintues?

  5. Great story, and how true! We didn't have binkies, but we did have blankies. Same thing! I loved this! Nice job!

  6. This is hilarious, Melody. I was working up a sweat, there, until the end. Thanks for the laughs.

  7. Cute! Thanks for letting me know about Jenny's blog. I went ahead and added my story to my blog and her list of links:)

  8. Funny...but you did take your life in your much more careful.

  9. Oh too funny and so true: They hate it when you hide the remote, and are ready to do anything to recuperate it. A good write and a fun read.

  10. Melody! First of all I want to tell you that the picture of Aiden is beyond cute. I love that bright look of expectation on his face. Too adorable!

    And this was a perfect little read!

    Thanks for the smile. I really thought this was a fun take on the prompt.
