Sticks and Stones: Trifecta

This week’s Trifecta challenge –


3   a : of inferior quality or worth : tawdry, sleazy <cheapworkmanship>

     b : contemptible because of lack of any fine, lofty, or redeeming qualities <feeling cheap>


Sticks and stones:

Don’t look at me! You are a cheap whore, just like your mother. His insults bounced off her like drops of rain on a windshield. She was just glad it was almost over.

    • Thank you. Sometimes when I think about a word; I just get a picture in my mind. This one was graphic, but it felt powerful too. Really, all three of my entries I can just see. It’s weird.

  1. Thanks for linking up this week. Your piece reminded me of a memoir I read many, many years ago–about a little girl who lived with an abusive father. He used to drive her around to different locations, and a lot of the narrative of the book came from her thoughts in the car. Haunting. Nicely done.
