Daily Prompt: Drawing a Blank

When was the last time your walked away from a discussion, only to think of The Perfect Comeback hours later? Recreate the scene for us, and use your winning line.

In my childhood, I had much trouble conversing with people. I was easily intimidated by rude rich arrogant school kids and cruel adults. I’d often get to hear nasty remarks about me and my religion and my financial status and what not. So, as a kid I used to spend hours together thinking of The Perfect Comeback. I could never ever achieve it in those days. 

Then, I grew up and got to read this:

“And the servants of the Most Merciful are those who walk upon the earth easily, and when the ignorant address them [harshly], they say [words of] peace,”

Qur’an 25:63

Well, nothing works better.
