I've decided to submit two entries in one today, due to my overall status as a scofflaw. The first, something fast and silly. The second submission is just within the 100 word limit.
Memory Is a Deceptive Thing
It was the 11th anniversary of my promise not to mark annual celebra
Damn, I screwed up again!
It was the 11th anniversary of the day I lost my wedding ring. Life on the farm was tough; money was tight. Losing that ring was just adding insult to injury.
Millie, my wife of twenty years, said that she didn't care about the ring.
It all happened so fast. One second I had my hand in the combine augur to fix it, and whoosh, the ring was gone.
I shiver a little just thinking about it. Millie notices, and comes to me. Saying nothing, she smiles sweetly, kisses me, and buttons up my favorite sweater against the chill.
They never did find my hand.
