Welcome to Saturday Centus, hosted by the Divine Jenny Matlock! Her challenge is to write a 100 word post about the prompt that she provides. The prompt is not included in the word count of the post. This week's challenge is in bold type below.
It was a week before Christmas. Everyone worked overtime to handle the extra requests. When Santa joined Facebook the requests tripled. He worked late reading each request and soon found himself in bed with the flu.
“I’ll never finish!” Santa cried to Elf Larkin.
“Relax, Santa” Larkin replied, “I’ll handle it!” Off he scurried and didn’t return until Christmas Eve, with the list of names, matched up with toys.
“We had such a demand for the FT-105 racers that we ran out. So, we used all of the FT-103 racers that we had in stock” Larkin boasted.
Santa’s eyes crossed. “What was he thinking? OMG Elves are soooo 2009…”
