Saturday Centus - Rock, Paper, Scissors!



In honor of the first anniversary of Saturday Centus (please click here for info) I hereby offer my 100-word story for your perusal. This week, since it is such a special week, our fearless leader, Jenny Matlock, is allowing us to use a picture. Normally, we just take the prompt and run with it! The prompt we have been assigned, is below in bold lettering. Here we go!


"Although the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper..." Bill wanted to try something different. He knew that Jenni loved butterflies.

Bill thought, “Rick sculptures rock. I’ll see if he can shape a butterfly for Jenni.” Well, Rick was at Burning Man, so that idea was out.

Bill found a box of old scissors in the closet. He emptied them onto the floor. He painted the scissors with the brightest colors he found! After welding and sanding, he realized that he was not a scissor artist.

In despair, he picked up some colored paper and nail scissors. Jenni walked in and shouted,

“I love it…and I love you, too!”


Thanks for stopping by today. Please click on the Saturday Centus logo below and wee what other masterpieces have been offered!

I loved the use of the prompt. Besides, when someone loves you as much as he did her, and MAKES her something, it is awesome.

It works so well because it really is the thought that counts. I think we're most of us happier if we know the gift-giver took the time to create themselves. Good creation here.

Aha! I know what Burning Man is. I feel all cool and hip and ...

hmmm???? What's that? Cool people don't say 'hip' anymore?

WHATTTTT!!!!

Sigh.

Okay, then.

This was a cool take on the prompt. Love where you went with this.
