Jenny Matlock presents today's challenge: Using 100 words (not counting the prompt, which appears below in bold text), craft a story. You may add pictures, if you desire.
I used the Jenny-supplied picture:
Happy Childhood Nannies - A Commitment of Care
(NOT found on their promotional materials)
These kids are driving her crazy,
Their demands are constant and loud.
Just when she thinks she’s regained some control,
They create new chaos – faces looking so proud!
Steam coming from her ears, her hair standing on end,
She reaches her breaking point, and feels her mind snap.
She hides in the corner and prays for assistance,
Calls 911 for help, “I can’t take all this crap!
Saying goodbye was harder than she thought,
Despite being giddy to leave all the racket.
She couldn’t raise her arms to wave her farewell,
Wrapped as she was in the sturdy straitjacket.
