Saturday Centus - Stop the Madness!
It's Saturday Centus Time! For those of us older than dirt...do you remember the Howdy Doody Show? Well....? Jenny, over at Off on My Tangent, gives us an idea, and then we write, write, write.... The prompt this week is "It doesn't have to be like this." We must not write more than 107 words (which includes the prompt) and Jenny is graciously allowing a picture this time. It took some deep thinking for me to come up with something that is so blatantly visible, but heck, it's only a story!
Every day is the same. She gets up, eats, and is on her way. When she arrives at work, she buys a muffin and Latte from the shop downstairs. At 8:00am, she wonders what to have for a snack.
Nine o’clock arrives and it’s time for a banana and juice. By 10:30am, she begins to think about lunch.
“What shall I eat today?” she asks herself. “If I walk to the deli, I can have chips with my sandwich, and save the cookie for later.” Her obsession with food was slowly killing her.
“It doesn’t have to be like this” the voice said. “Stop the madness, now!”
For some, it is a daily struggle, and some feel that they live one hour at a time. Thanks for stopping by. Please chomp your way over to Jenny's crib and read some fine literary spectacles by a few of my favorite blogger buds. Just click on the typewrite below.
Have a great week!
