Cat and Mouse

If you have almost been struck by lightning as many times I have been ( 4 times )

you might find it understandable that someone like me

would be terrified of lightning storms.

And you might be right- to a point because when there is a lightning storm going on over my head

I get this  creepy crawly feeling that starts  just between my shoulder blades, it  slides it way up my spine to the base of my skull and then it shoots from there  to the

corners of my mouth…

and in that moment, where you would think I am about to open my mouth and call out in fear,

I don’t.

Instead I smile because

I have almost been struck by lightning at least for times

and it’s missed me every time.
