Gino meets his match....



Another Saturday Centus, a themed writing meme. The challenge is to write 100 words to add to the prompt started by Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.


The writing prompt is in itallics...


“Gimmy your lunch money” Gino said “and I won’t beat you up”.

I dug deep in my pockets and pulled out 35 cents and handed it over.

Same thing I did yesterday and the day before.

Tales of a third grade wimp.

Then… Gino met my sister.

Tales of a first grade maniac.

She chased him for at least a block and jumped him on our neighbor’s lawn.

She punched him in the head. And kicked him in the back.

I wanted to laugh at his green freckles, instead I took the money he returned.

He never bothered me again.

It’s true, the smell of freshly mowed grass can stay with you for years, for decades.

Don't let the pretty "get up"  fool ya, the kid was a scrapper.

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
