I'm participating in Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus today. The goal? Using a pre-defined writing prompt, create a witty/funny/macabre/thought-provoking (pick one or more) story using no more than 100 words. No pictures, no "blue" language.
The prompt today? It was a dark and stormy night.
It was a dark and stormy night.
I nodded off listening to the cacophony from the sky - pelting rain and booming thunder seemingly acting as white noise.
A loud crack of thunder startled me awake.
A final quick check of hair and clothing - time to get to work.
"Dave, when is this weather going to let up?"
"The rain will finally be gone tomorrow morning, Chet. We'll have a partly sunny day, temperatures in the upper 80s by five p.m. Back to the news after these commercials." I shouldn't get any hate mail for THAT 10 p.m. forecast...everyone loved the weatherman when the sun was shining.
