My boss succeeded at giving me a splitting headache before noon so I decide to eat lunch at a park downtown. It was gorgeous outside despite tornado warnings and high winds.

Wearing a plaid dress, I found a bench. Shortly after, a gaunt man in baby-blue plaid with a peachfuzz haircut sits nearby. While eating, first one coward yelled about my dress--well after walking away. Then another, opposite direction, also away from me; again, another.

Sensing my discomfort, "Peachfuzz" gets up, walks away. Once done eating, I spot him on a bench further away, staring at me intently.

    Thank you both. I should've invented more for this one and maybe got rid of the first part... I will write again but am on vacation and am in life-purge-mode. I don't want to write from a place where anger exists so it's better if I just destressify and come back later. I say that now but who knows where my mind will go next. =p

    Life-purge-mode?! I hope you're okay OPR. Don't vanish on us. I would miss your writing if you did.

    Not vanishing; I am living! If anything I hope to write more as I experience more. =) I need catharsis every so often.
