Mouth Drop

In exactly 100 words creatively describe one moment when your mouth dropped open, chin hit the ground, and tears rolled down your face (figuratively or not). If you prefer to develop this into a longer post, that’s fine too!

When I lived in Ghana back in 2013 I had a boyfriend for a short bit. We had one of our usual arguments. I don’t know remember about what or how we started quarreling. But in response to something I said he told me to 'fuck off.'

He never talked to me this way before. Nor have I had other boyfriends talk to me like this. I did the first thing that come to my mind. I slapped the shit out of him.

I don’t remember what immediately happened after that but within a few weeks we broke up.


*I”m not a violent person and this is the first and only time this has happened. I have successfully refrained from slapping men when they start talking slick*
