Welcome to Saturday Centus, a weekly writing challenge hosted by Jenny Matlock at Off On My Tangent. Each week, we are given a prompt to write about using a set number of words (100 plus the prompt-this week) which can be prose, poetry, fiction or fluff. Personally, my favorite is fluff! This week's prompt is "I finally understood the phrase ‘a deer in the headlights’” and is in bold below. Glad you're here!
I recently moved 300 miles away from my kids. It’s okay; they are all consenting adults.
To feel closer to them, I visit their Facebook pages. This is not always the most cuddly, huggly way to stay in touch! Since they are consenting adults, they post consenting adult statements, etc., on their pages. I have no control, say-so or editorial discretion privileges concerning their posts. I no longer go there. Some days I want to cancel my account when I see or read their latest adventures.
When I saw this, “I finally understood the phrase ‘a deer in the headlights’”. It’s not the worst I’ve seen, but one of the cutest!
