Saturday Centus - A Tale of My End

Welcome to Saturday Centus, a weekly writing challenge hosted by the glorious Jenny Matlock, Off On My Tangent. Normally, we are given a topic to write about, using no more than 100 words (plus the words of the topic). Today, our challenge has been cut in half - we must write using only 25 words, plus the topic "the end," which I have typed in bold. Thanks for making my day, Jenny!

I fear, the end is near
I know it's near, I can feel it.
I sit on it every day
And feel it hang over the chair.

Please know that this was written on only one cup of coffee! You should see what I can do after finishing the whole pot!

HaHa! A whole pot of coffee! Wanna come over and clean my house? Hee Hee! You write wonderfully but slow down on that caffeine! I love to come over and tease everyone after I have walked a mile and a half and can barely move my old bones! Tee Hee.
You are a great writer! That was quite a challenge but your ending is perfection!

I don't want the end to be near. I hope it's just your rear end you feel hanging over the chair.

Very clever take on this mini-prompt. You made excellent use of every one of those 25 words! None of us wants our end to hang over the chair!

Namaste..........cj

This was so good. I love your humor and the way you worked with the double meaning of "end." Very amusing.

I can really relate to your comment after your text. I never sit down and just write these things down; I scribble the prompt on the back of an old envelope and work it out in my mind while I push the pram to town with the children to go shopping. Which is why I did not get the thing posted until yesterday, Sunday, instead of on Saturday when most people do it.
And then it takes me two to three weeks to comment on every else's post!
So now you know!
You're doing alright!
Best wishes,
Anna
