Welcome to Saturday Centus, part of my Saturday morning routine as I consume my 32 ounces of coffee! Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent sponsors this always entertaining weekly meme where we are challenged to write a story, poem, or other means of the written word, using a prompt of her fancy. Our contributions can be no more than 100 words, (not including the prompt) and cannot be accompanied by a picture.
We all impatiently waited for the show to begin. Freddie leaned over to whisper into Susie’s ear. I so wanted to know what he was saying to her, since she made the ugliest face as he spoke! Fern and Dana were playing Patty-Cake for the fiftieth time! I wanted to scream “stop it!” Becky couldn’t leave her dress alone, and Timmy picked his nose…continuously.
I thought, “What am I doing here with these knuckleheads?” I looked around at the audience and it dawned on me that the average age was five. I looked down and shook my head. Just then, the curtain parted…
Sorry...my story, minus the prompt, stops here at 100 words exactly!
Thanks for stopping by. If you dare, please feed my ego with a comment of a few words of sugar, spice or vinegar - whatever you'd like! If you hunger for more quick reads, please hop over to Jenny's house by clicking on the logo below!
Enjoy the weekend! St. Louis has SUNSHINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
