Sunday Snippet: Beast

How do you perceive things? It’s easy to see in the words you choose to describe it with. Below is an example of a woman’s reaction to a vicious-looking family pet. What can you pull of her personality from just six sentences?

Theresa eyed the.. 
thing... in front of her. Large and wild, the beast looked nothing like the dog Jim claimed it was. It looked much more like a bear that’s been through a meat grinder on more than one occasion, in her opinion. But the beast wasn’t snarling, or foaming at the mouth. No, it was on its back, legs spread-eagle, having its enormous belly rubbed by a six-year-old. Something had to be wrong with the world, she mused, for something that hideous and mangled to be so sweet.
