I am writing my Saturday
assignment on Thursday.
Does that make this Thursday Centus?
No, it probably just makes me
a day late and a dollar short.
Okay, okay, it makes me six days
late and a dollar short!
However, the rules say that you
can post anytime during the week!
Now, that is my kind of deadline!
Anyhoo, I am glad to
to be participating in Jenny Matlock's
Speaking of being six days late
and a dollar short,
not only am I late...
evidently, I am lazy!
Have you been over to
Tom's Sophisticated Lunacy
to read his Saturday Centus post?
While I lazily "cut and paste" my intro
to each and every Saturday Centus,
old, wiseacre Tom
(just a phrase...Tom is actually
young,sexy and rich)
writes the best introductions every damn week!
I'm getting pretty sick of it!
Tom is putting the pressure on me to produce...
introductions, that is.
Why must he show me up every week?
I am beginning to think that Tom
really enjoys tormenting me with his
bizarre thoughts and hilarious words!
Stop it, Tom...
just stop it!
Anyway, stop by his blog,
way funnier than my blog
and sign up to follow his wise ass!
Now get ready for my regular
"cut and paste" introduction...
What is Saturday Centus?
It is a themed writing meme.
Each Saturday, Ms. Matlock will give
a writing prompt.
if you choose to accept it...
is to write a 100 word story.
Yes, 100 words or less...
not including the "prompt words".
Oh, and the prompt words can
be used anywhere in your story!
Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
The writing prompt is good for the entire week,
so you can join in at any time!
THIS WEEK'S PROMPT:
Somewhere over the rainbow...
So here is my contribution
to Saturday Centus...
The explosion was massive.
Fireballs catapulted toward heaven, transporting body parts and sea creatures alike.
Below the disturbance, saltwater inhabitants scurried in survival mode. If only rig hands had been given the same opportunity.
Screams of agony ripped through the Gulf air.
It was unexpected by the men who sweat in the unrelenting heat of the sun. It was patiently awaited in the air-conditioned offices of management. It was just a matter of time.
As calm returned, sprays of salt water and oil caught the sunlight as it gently returned to the sea, creating an ocean of rainbows.
Somewhere over the rainbow…
