Today’s 3words are: BULGE, WHIP, EIGHT.
And my ongoing story is…
Mark was EIGHTy pounds overweight, and embarrassed about it, constantly wearing loose shirts, believing if the material wasn’t pulled tight to his stomach nobody would know. He usually went a step further, wearing a jacket on top, as if the extra BULGEs could confuse.
His fingers felt drawn to his ear, and the funny lump there that appeared last month –and he had first thought was a spot: it wasn’t… he’d googled it… it was a keloid– was bleeding.
Without thinking, he WHIPped off his t-shirt, exposing his wobbly belly, and mopped up the blood before it could congeal.
