OneWord - so little time [akimbo]

She stood there, arms akimbo, exhibiting all the attitude that could only be contained in the body of a six year old girl. I was too far away to hear her words, but it was clear by her stance and the movements of her head that she was tearing those playground bullies a new one! When she had finished her diatribe, she took the hand of the little boy they'd been picking on and lead him away for a quiet swing on the swing-set.

Thanks, Steeler Chick, good word! This post is a tribute to the granddaughter of a co-worker of mine who has shown herself to be a schoolyard heroine!
