Slippery : #67 Sunday Scribblings
The immediate thought was the Slippery characters I’ve known. The shonk’s, the shiester’s, the dodgie’s, the rip off artist’s who’ve stolen my goods and chattels. But ... then I thought of how more shonky the Slippery characters are who steal your heart, your trust, then, when you least expect it, they slither back to from whence they came.

Good riddance, their loss my gain, has often been my reaction. What a waste of energy Slippery characters are. To have been foolishly beguiled into thinking you’ve known where you stood hurts deep. To have generously invested rarely given loyalty to them, to have tolerated, yet treasured their childish, narrow minded opinions, along with the realisation that in the back of their tiny mind, they were surely readying themselves to bestow, a dose of their oft used Slippery, gutless tactic upon you and bugger off without so much as a courteous explanation ... should be celebrated with a resounding hip, hip hooray ... what a blessing!

To ease the hurt and appease the gut ache a good cure for an experience with a Slippery character is Slippery Elm. Traditionally used in Western herbal medicine to soothe and relieve irritation, this old North American Indian cure, derived from the bark of the Slippery Elm tree is known to alleviate heartburn by coating and ‘smoothing’ the irritated gastro intestinal tract. Especially marvellously healing when you’re sick to your gut from a dose of Slippery betrayal.

Enough dillydallying, no more analysing, no more pondering the hurt, I'm Over It, I'm grateful. Now for another dose of Slippery Elm, stick more pins in the doll and put that name in the freezer!!!
