Your prompt for JusJoJan January 27th, 2022, is “understanding.” Use the word “understanding” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

I have no understanding of what you did and why? You are exactly right, I do not! What’s more, I do not want to understand because that would bring me down to your level, which is below scum.

After everything I did, everything I went through to support you, to help you fulfill your dreams, financial assistance, late nights helping you study for exams and boards while working full-time myself and taking care of our babies.

You get that scum of the earth? OUR BABIES! Yours and mine. Dark haired, dark eyed beautiful babies. I don’t see a blonde bimbo hair on either one of them. No blue eyed fawn or would that be faux looking creature looks back at you, oh well, except from your bed you piece of unmitigated garbage!

What’s that? I’m sorry, I’m having a little trouble hearing you? I honestly don’t care nor do I want to hear your lame excuses. This is all your fault! Stop whining, it really is beneath you. What would your cronies and peers think?

Actually, let me get a picture of you, all trussed up like a New Years Eve pig! I’d put an apple in your mouth but I much prefer that gag.

Hmm? I’m so sorry but truly, I can’t understand a word you are saying. How does that feel by the way? Not being heard or acknowledged? It’s really not a nice feeling at all, I should know. Eighteen years I’ve lived with a person who doesn’t even know my favorite color.

So, now I believe we have come to an understanding, yes?
