This post is a themed writing project challenge taken from Jenny Matlock over at off on my tangent.
Jenny says we can use UP to 100 words to tell our story. It can be fact or fiction. Jenny posts a few words, a prompt that we work from. This weeks prompt is in bold italics.
The bin of tangled up holiday lights always signals the beginning.
Soon there’d be slightly muffled cussing of crooked tree trunks and the fact that we’re Catholic instead of Jehovah Witness.
“WHO in their right mind puts a tree…
A FRICKIN DIRTY TREE in the middle of the living room?
it drips annnnnnnd...
IT’S A FIRE HAZARD.
Next year, I swear, NO REAL TREE.
NO TINSEL, nooooo tinsel..
This year I WON”T be pulling tinsel out of the cat’s ass.
Have I told you how much I hate the holidays?
I don’t know WHY I put myself through this every year.”
