Prrrtttt .... Foul!



Sunday Scribbling's prompt this week is "FOUL".....

My introduction to this word "foul" was through "basketball games" we used to watch as a family, when I was a kid. (remember, English is my second language).

Prrrtttt ... foul! the referee whistled as he would point out who the "foul" was (or who did the foul move).

I am just thinking ...would it be nice if we all have a referee to make us accountable for our actions. Wouldn't it be nice to have an "official referee" for our families that when kids (or us - hubby and I) do not play nice, he (or she) would call, whistle and shout - Foul!

I read Linda's post. It too is about basketball. A poem. One of my favourite sports. I was in my school basket ball team.

Foul rings in my ear even now.

Thanks.

good friends can call our shit, but mostly it's up to us to remain conscious and honest.

LOL. I'd probably learn to ignore THAT person, too! Provocative post, to be sure!

Sadly, we have such a referee. He's called Conscience.
