Thrown for a Bellcurve; Writing 101 Challenge – Day 12

Day 12 – Write a post inspired by a real-world conversation. Revisit a time when you wish you’d spoken up, reminisce about an important conversation that will always stick with you, or tune in to a conversation happening around you right now and write your reaction. Include an element of foreshadowing in the beginning of your post.
