Tantrum: Microfiction #Blogbattle Week 57

I didn’t have much to say, so I decided to just say nothing. Staring blankly out into nothing seemed a better use of time, a determined waste of time, than yapping and pretending.

What was left to say? What was done was done.

Of course, that brought nothing but a cloud of awkward, a smelly cloud if you ask me. The only thing is if anyone were to ask me about the smelly cloud, they wouldn’t get an answer.

Why? Because I decided to be silent. It’s my world now.

I’ve also decided to hold my breath, while I stare out into nothing, especially since I am stuck in the stinky awkward cloud of silence.

It’s everyone else’s fault by the way. Yes! That’s the ticket! I am blaming them. I am blaming them for making me stare silently, out into nothing, in a stinky awkward cloud of silence, where I am now holding my breath until my lips turn blue and I pass out!

MOM! This is your fault! And one of us is going to have to realize that time out is not the answer! Things happen in a child’s world…but you wouldn’t understand.

  1. You captured the mind and thoughts of a child pretty well, I think. I remember thinking such things as a kid, pitting my will against my mother’s. I very rarely won… 😉

    1. Hahaha thank you. I’ve a lot a nieces and nephews, taught preschool for a while and have even done in home child care so I have had the pleasure of getting very familiar with this behavior. Truth is, I think we adults behave like this on occasion.

      1. I agree. I think we do. We may express it in a different way sometimes, but we can all throw a tantrum. 🙂

  2. This was fun to figure out! I wasn’t sure who was speaking or what the situation was at first, but then hints and clues came, and at the end was the image of an adorable pouty child. Loved it! So true, adults don’t understand a child’s world woes. 😀

    1. I am glad you enjoyed it. I didn’t realize it was a child myself until I was finished writing it 😛 I’m also glad to hear from you. must inbox soon!
