The word prompt for Wednesday Stories is MUM
and the picture prompt for Friday Flash is
I sit on a man’s back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means – except by getting off his back.” – Leo Tolstoy
