The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Feb. 15/2020. Cheek.
It’s Saturday again and it’s time LindaGHill’s #SoCs, she said “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cheek.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Enjoy!”
“What a bloody cheek” she shouted as the man in the BMW cut her up on the inside! I’m not having that she thought to herself. Putting her foot down on the axcellorater she sped past him and cut in right in front of him making him put on his brakes.
“Cheeky mare” he muttered, as he slowed up sharply. He pushed his hand down on the horn and smiled, “That’ll make her jump”
It did, but it also made her angry and she cursed him, he’s got the cheek of the devil she thought to herself.
At that moment his phone rang , like a fool he he answered it as he shot past her again as it began to rain. The dry road soon became slippery. Just then as she sped up again the lorry came over the brow of the hill.
They both saw it, she lost control at exactly the same time as he did the BMW hit her Audi knocking it into the path of the juggernaut something on the road made the BMW spin into back of the Audi.
After the noise of the crash, there was silence, total silence. The lorry driver was stunned , after he had rung the police he slowly climbed down from his cab and approached the mangled metal that was all that was left of the two cars.
The paramedics were shocked by the mess of metal that had been two cars. Both drivers were dead, both had their mobiles in their hands. The lorry driver was in shock. The driver of BMW was unrecognisable lost in the mangled metal. The woman on the other hand was totally unmarked apart from a bloody cheek!
Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

Dangers of speeding and phones right there, Sis!
So true Sis, worse still they were a couple, they were ringing eachother! 💜💜💜
Yes indeed, lucky it’s only a story 💜
Oh no! What a waste. Great story.
Thank you 💜
A pleasure Willow.
Cheeky road rage. I seriously had an incident like that happen to me. This lady didn’t like that I stopped for the yellow light. She tried to ram into my car. The light turned green and I safely went on. She followed me. Got in front of my car and stopped. When I tried to pass, she made me swerve. I turned down an alley way and she followed. By the time I figured out how to ditch her I was late for work and shaking like crazy. L.A. has lots of that kind of crazy. No longer cheeky when people get hurt. Sorry. Yours is a good story.
Thank you, your story is very scary, I have had similar but not as bad it crazy , some people get behind the wheel and turn into monsters! I did take the story to the worst end! Did you notice they both had their phones out? That was because they were a couple and they were racing because of a row. Drive safe 💜
Yes, cell phones and anger are added dangers to driving. I agree, drive safe!
Thank you and you too 💜💜
Oh my God ! Well written. Wasted lives.
Thank you 💜
The blackest of humour.
Yup but sadly often true 💜
