DP Daily Prompt: Green-Eyed Lady
We all get jealous from time to time– what wakes the green-eyed monster for you.
Green-Eyed monster I am not
When I become human
you better watch out!
I am usually pretty laid back and don’t worry about who’s getting more attention than me, what I’m saying is little unimportant things don’t spark any kind of jealousy in me.
When I notice someone who is not deserving, but getting far more attention than me I become furious. My feelings go unnoticed for a while, but I take care of it by my “don’t care won’t talk attitude”.
A few years ago my stingy brother-in-law wanted my husband to invite his in-laws to their village home. We were going to Dhaka, my brother-in -law lives in the states,he found out about our trip,without wasting any time he told my husband that he should invite my brother-in-laws, in-laws to their village home for a meal.
As soon as we arrived in Dhaka,my husband started calling his brother’s in-laws to their village home. His enthusiasm was too much for me to bear, so I sat there in the veranda waiting to give him a piece of my mind.
The opportunity came almost immediately,he asked me something about what did I think, I stayed quiet, he asked,”Is anything wrong?”
I told him he should be ashamed of himself for inviting his brother’s, in-laws and completely ignoring my family. Oh he made a mistake he said and he was going to call them, I didn’t let him because he deliberately did that .
This was one of the times I felt hurt, angry and jealous, I am human after all.
