We all have choices
Torture is the act of inflicting severe pain (whether physical or psychological) as a means of punishment, revenge, forcing information or a confession, or simply as an act of cruelty.
Okay so I'm sure hubby wasn't deliberately punishing, inflicting revenge, forcing information or a confession, nor was he being simply cruel to either youngest MM or myself, but really. Then again, maybe he was.
Being woken at 7.30am on a Sunday is a form of torture all on its own. He did make me a cup of coffee in bed though - bribery 101. And admittedly the forty minute drive through the country was pleasant, the weather was delightfully warm and the devonshire tea that son and I consumed when we got there was superb. But...........
Stationary motors, tractors and hotted up cars - try as I might I could not muster a skerrick of enthusiasm for any of them. Son was slightly better than me at being a little interested in what the motors could do and me, well I didn't sulk but there wasn't much of a smile on my face either.
My four day weekend ends today, gotta love a National Holiday which occurs on a Thursday. I really, really like being at home (what person doesn't?) and could really get into the groove of working from home.
We always want what we can't have don't we and it's only once we get it that we decide we really want something different. Is this a benefit or downside of living a life with choices and options? Quite honestly, I think we're lucky to be able to choose how we live. To not have choices or options must be the biggest from of torture.
Hope you've had a great weekend
