To do.....

Saturday Centus time, 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...

The surgeon looked uncomfortable as I peppered him with questions and thoughts.

“What will the recovery be like?”

“What if it doesn’t work?”

“Pretend I'm your wife, or your sister."

“What would your advice be to them?”

He hesitated, then said “You’re 79 years old, is this surgery really necessary?”

I pretended to weigh my options, even though I knew what I was going to do.

"Are you sure that's the one you want?"

I felt a little lump in my throat as I peered down at my choice, held tightly in my hand. I didn't think this would be so nerve-wracking. Was I making the wrong decision? I couldn't agonize over this any longer.

I took a deep breath before managing to say, "... Yes, it is

“May I borrow your pen?” I asked opening my pocketbook.

I unfolded the tattered list and crossed off #98...

Acquire a set of 38 DD's.

Only two remaining.

Purchase long beige overcoat.

Locate Fabio.

  14. This just cracked me up. What a great take on this week's prompt. But you really need to write a story about crossing off the next two items, what on earth do you plan on doing with a long overcoat and Fabio LOL! Kat

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.
