Time For a Change
It's time for Saturday Centus again.
Jenny, at ...off on my tangent... has given us another interesting prompt for writing. She posted a picture of a dentist's chair (shudder... I've seen too much of that one lately) and challenged us to write 100 words, plus the six words:
the chair dominated the small roomWe could use her picture, or put up one of our own. Hmmm.... what shall I write?
How can I be creative with this?
Until she saw the picture posted on the office bulletin board, she hadn’t realized how her bottom, perched on the chair, dominated the small room. How horrifying! Her heart pounded, her face reddened, her jaw clamped in rage and mortification as she ripped the picture down.
She put her hand to her chest as she struggled to catch her breath and awoke, with a start, from the recurring nightmare. This time she got it. It was time for a change. Even the little bit of weight she had gained over the winter was obviously weighing heavy on her mind. Time to get back to Weight Watchers.
You can read other responses to the prompt by clicking on the Saturday Centus image, above. It never fails to amaze and amuse me to see all of the different ways people respond to the prompts!
