“The Last Word” by Lee Block for www.postdivorcechronicles.com
IDIOT, n. A member of a large and powerful tribe whose influence in human affairs has always been dominant and controlling. The Idiot’s activity is not confined to any special field of thought or action, but “pervades and regulates the whole.” He has the last word in everything; his decision is unappealable. He sets the fashions and opinion of taste, dictates the limitations of speech and circumscribes conduct with a deadline. ~ Ambrose Bierce
… I give them what they want. And, here is where my satisfaction comes into play … they think they got in the last word, but what they don’t know is that I GAVE them the last word.
