365 Writing Prompts: Land of Confusion
Tell us about a time when you felt out of place.
There were a lot of times when I felt out of place. Once I went to a party arranged by the ‘British Council’ I had no idea what sort of party it was. It was held in a large hall, I was about to enter the hall when I was stopped by a sweet lady, she was carrying a large round tray full of drinks, she asked me, “would you care for a drink?”
My facial expression must have alerted her to offer something different, she quickly changed her tone and said,”you can have tomato juice, you know.”
I thanked her and helped myself to a glass of tomato juice. I was out of place that day, everyone was drinking liquor, I was the only one drinking tomato juice!
