Saturday Centus time, a themed writing meme. This week's 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 (bold) itallics...
I plucked the Tylenol bottle from the top of the trash. As plain as day I could see her struggle up my porch, see her brown spotted hands gently place the grocery bag next to the door. “We’re sick Grandma” I’d said, “we have no one but you”. Really, she’d saved our lives with that delivery. Worst flu ever. She’d do anything for us. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss her. That old Tylenol bottle was a symbol of love, that’s why it meant so much. An Officer handed it to me with her other belongings. Apparently, it’d rolled out of the bag.

An angel of mercy.....

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.

Different! I'm learning lots of new words this week on my Centus tour! Yours is Tylenol!ReplyDelete
Poor Grandma, now she can get some rest, and not have to take care of everyone else.ReplyDelete
Aww, poor grandma. Very sad but very good Centus.ReplyDelete
It is the simple things that become markers in our lives...like a medicine bottle.ReplyDelete
Oh Koby, This is so poignant and it makes me remember my Gram. Excellent!ReplyDelete
Grandmas! I love them! Can I have her when she gets better? I think I need a Grandma, too!ReplyDelete
What a great use of the prompt.
Thank you for linking!
Isn't it amazing how much those little things can mean?ReplyDelete

Awww, what would we do without Grandma's.... I miss mine too. Great way to use the prompt :)ReplyDelete
There's nothing quite like a Grandma's love.ReplyDelete
Grandparents are special folks. You've captured that brilliantly here.ReplyDelete
Grandmas rock. As did this little story.ReplyDelete
Really touching. Grandmas hold a special place in my heart.ReplyDelete
I think 'grandma' earned her halo.
Awwwww! Very, very sweet! Isn't it lucky that the world has grandmas to take care of everyone? I am thrilled that you took such a mundane object like a Tylenol bottle and made it into an object full of memories and love! I so enjoyed!ReplyDelete
I just posted my tardy contribution for this week. I hope you will stop by and read!
oh I could cry. My mom is so special to my daughters...she would sacrifice all that she knows for them...ReplyDelete
