Who of us is so perfect that we can sit in judgment of another? Well, maybe some of us need a good paddling to either get the point or to get to that point.
Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s humor; I think.
Let Her Who Is Without Sin
My wife, Jill, the activist, saw this “thing” and immediately cried, “I’m buying it.”
I knew there was no convincing her otherwise, but I still had to whine, “But it’s just a bunch of stones glued to some wood.”
“Exactly,” her eyes lit up.
“I don’t get it.”
“It will be my ‘Contrition Paddlestick’.”
She gleamed. “You know how when friends and family rant on against welfare, immigration, LGBT, the ACLU? I will take this out and, like The Master, I will simply say, Let her who is without sin cast the first stone.”
“But they’re glued on, Jill.”
“Uh huh.” She chuckled. “That’s the fun part.”
I think you mean “It will BE my…” 😉
Jill makes a good point. We’re all good at pointing fingers while our own halos fall down around our ears.
sentence updated. Thanks.
Let her take out the plank in her own eye before drawing attention to the hair in someone else’s. Or, something like that, eh.
I like Jill, and yes I know that is a judgement call.
Everything is a judgment call until it’s Judgment Day.
Thanks for commenting. Randy
Oh, let’s rip ’em off and throw ’em anyway! Fun use of the prompt, Randy.
Ooh. You’re so bad, Perry.
Be careful, she just may take that paddlestick to you for that.
I think Jill has the right idea – very clever and fun take on the prompt. 🙂
Randy, I think she’s not too pleased with the opinions of family and friends. Well written. 🙂 — Susan
