Rose Parade Leftovers

"I feel like an idiot" Otto complained. “This Fez-like hat is such a joke! They were supposed to remove all props at the end of the parade. I'm still wearing this stupid fake ice hat, and my arms and legs are still covered with the same, stupid fake ice! And, as if I couldn't be humiliated any more, some stupid paparazzi clicks away, and now I'm on the front of 'The Citrus Star', along with all the other stupid Rose Parade leftovers, and I fear that I will be remembered for this ridiculous look! Will somebody please just squeeze me?”

Jenny Matlock, threw us a zinger this week for Saturday Centus, and instead of writing 100 words or less in response to a written prompt, she wants us to write about a picture. Jenny, you are so strict sometimes!

Please click on the logo below and read some very creative stories about an ice covered orange!

Good enough that I could picture the grumpy, fez-wearing Otto. I liked your "squeeze me" line.

Good solution to this picture-prompt. Some of us have gone a similar path as you, and personified the orange. Not many have made the snow fake. Great centus. Kinda cute, too.
Best wishes,
Anna's SC#36

Great response to the prompt. I can "hear" his voice! Interesting how many of us saw a hat, but took it in so many different directions. Well done! Kat

What a fun and creative spin on the photo prompt! I think those faux snow fezzes are very GQ! Not here, but probably in Paris or Milan where people can get away with putting stupid stuff on their heads. Great job!
