Traveling down the road one afternoon, I heard the most annoying sound…Martha! You’d have to know Martha. She talks incessantly and complains more than ten people afflicted with boils! What really gets to me though is the affliction she brings with all her complaints.
Well, this was just the limit, no sooner had I gotten in the car than the barrage of complaints started. I had always held my tongue and prayed Christian composure, but today I felt a new strength rising in me. Today I would muster up the boldness to open my mouth and say just what I have been keeping back for years. The words were still in my brain pounding to get out. Sweat began to seep out of each pour and then it happened. The words came out so fast and furious. For a moment I lost myself wondering if I was in tongues! Whatever the tongue it was flying and Martha was speechless. Martha…speechless…Oh what sweet release! Every word well placed and she had no comeback. She just stayed in silent repose. Oh the glory, the sheer exhilaration of it all.
I love those trips alone in the car when you are the cast of characters and you win every argument. Oh yes, you know just the kind of mental debates or arguments I’m talking about. It’s all right though; everybody thinks we’re just jamming to the music!

I have done this myself as I'm sure everyone has,I hope.
I loved this and laughed at the ending.

I was with you in the first paragraph but you lost me in the end. It's late at night and maybe my brain is not receiving correctly but I didn't get it...sorry.

I started reading and couldn't stop!! I think we can all relate to moments like that.

(:. This is very conversational and had lots of energy! I hope Martha will 'get over it' all right!

Hehe, cute twist!

Yep, I've done it, too! So sweet to get to be the one to do the telling off-even if it means in the imagination only! Very funny!
