Flouncing From The Room

Daily Draw: Moon Oracle ~ Artemis

Artemis warns against her worst traits, impetuosity, brittle cleverness, competitiveness overkill.

I'm reminded by this card of my teens. a time ripe for the first two. Pushing boundaries, sullen responses, plus a flaming temper I hadn't yet managed to control. My most often killer response to being reined in? "Fine then, I just won't go" and flouncing from the room. I can't conceive of  my parents being button pushers, but that response always worked to their favor. Not until the angry temper fell away would I realize I was right where they wanted me. I haven't got a competitive bone in my body which I've always considered a plus.

"That girl could flounce better than a fat turkey on a trampoline." ~ Terry Pratchett 1948-2015
