Daily Prompt: Intense
Describe the last time you were surprised by the intensity of a feeling you had about something, or were surprised at how strongly you reacted to something you thought wouldn’t be a big deal.
My husband was an old fashioned person. He believed that women shouldn’t drive. For years when he was sitting somewhere guarding our borders, I would be sitting housebound waiting for him to come home, so that I could run my errands. Later on when he became a senior officer, I had no dearth of drivers. Once he retired my situation detoriated.
I was again dependent on him for driving me for various things. It irked me to no end. If I went for shopping I was expected to finish in two to three hours. Within this time limit I bought groceries, fitted in doctor’s appointments (if I had any) and other things waiting to be done. Shopping for my own needs got pushed time and again to another day. I would be left frustrated.
In the year he was to go for heart surgery I begged and cajoled for a car of my own. Finally he relented and bought me the car of my choice.
You can’t imagine my immense joy and overwhelming happiness at getting a brand new car of my own. It was INTENSE.
