Excuse Me!


"Sister, Miss!"- Names what they referred me as when I was alone.

"Aunty, Woman!"- They addressed me so when they spotted me with my kid!

Why can't they address “Lady / MADAM” every time?!




My 33-words Post for the Trifextra : Week 104

This week’s challenge: You’ve got exactly 33 words and one of the must be a palindrome. It’s a word or phrase that reads the same forwards and backwards. For example, words like mum, mom, refer or sexes etc. Or phrases, such as the one above; or ‘seven eves’ or ‘yo banana boy!’ For some palindromic inspiration and a huge list of them, check out http://www.palindromelist.net/

  2. I agree with Kymm! I detected quite a voice right off of the bat with this piece. Very well done. Good choice of palindrome as well. As Trifecta winds down, it is nice to know that the quality of work is remaining so high. Thanks. :)

  7. And, why can't they? I'm a man, but I see the objectification of women. I was raised by a single mother, they struggle. I'll admit right now that women get the shit end of the deal. So, your words ring true, the voice is genuine, and I love your spirit. Great work!

    1. They want to address by other names just because the lady happens to have a kid! :)
