My Agility On Ice

When I came to Montreal, my  husband wanted to test my agility on ice, needless to say I was a total failure.

Each time I went to  Mount Royal Park in Montreal, I tried to learn to stand on ice with my skates on,forget how slow or fast I was, I could not stand on ice.

I watched little kids moving freely without a care in the world. One little  girl came to help me, she extended her hand, there I was trying to take the hand but couldn’t, I fell down. I thanked her and told her, ‘I cannot skate.’

I asked her to go on and enjoy herself, I knew I was wasting her precious time.

Knowing I wasn’t agile on ice, I tried to know if I was sharp learning Canada’s second language French. I was glad my brain could cope with the language, even though my feet weren’t agile!

365 days Writing Prompt: Dulled

You encounter a mysterious man offering you a magic potion that,once sipped will make one of your senses (sight,hearing,taste,smell,touch)super sharp—but dull the others. Will you sip it, and if so, what sense do you choose?

I will reject the mysterious man’s potion, I feel I need all of my senses working as they should, if any of them is dulled, there will be serious consequences, I have seen people who have hearing loss, it is not easy for them to do their daily work, to help them they get hearing aid, which is not the right substitute because it has its flaws.

Hearing ,taste,touch,smell have their own specific duties, making one super sharp and dulling the others cannot work for me.
