Theme Wk 12 "..where they ain't..."

“They” are a couple who “enjoys ill health.” No one has ever had an ailment that “They” haven’t already had…worse, longer, a more serious case. If you meet “Them” on the street, you’ll soon learn not to ever say, “How are you?”
That simple, courteous, rhetorical question will always be met with an organ recital “well my knees…having a replacement…horrible stomach aches from… headaches….Dr. thinks…probably a rare type of …..deficiency…”

Unfortunately, they aren’t usually kind and thoughtful enough to keep their bad attitudes between themselves. They’ve shared them with their children as well…”Are you feeling ok? look pale…let me feel your forehead…are you sure you aren’t…..blah blah blah…They drive away friends. They alienate colleagues to the point of people ducking around corners when they see either of the pair approaching. They are angry at the world. What makes people dwell so on their own problems...real or imagined…that they forget all the basic lessons they’ve learned (and taught) in Sunday School? So sad. It must be an exhausting way to live.

Yeah, this works for me. I see you peeking around the edges here without actually showing yourself.
