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!
Very good and very original! It was heartbreaking until you gave us hope at the end!ReplyDelete
LOL! Love it and I'm putting the bag of chips down now...:@)ReplyDelete
Oops, somebody is not having the best day....or the best chair either! But those words rock... It's time for a change....the just boom out! I like how you went with this!ReplyDelete
Clever and original.ReplyDelete
So well done.
Hey, guess what? I just found practically a whole bag of chips that someone put down!! And I only ate ONE!!ReplyDelete

Ha ha! That was too funny! Perfect picture too!~AmesReplyDelete

Hilarious and creative! I'm quite sure I've had that nightmare.ReplyDelete
That was a great story!! Very very well done!!!ReplyDelete
I like your story, D. It was inspiring. :)ReplyDelete
Also it was inspiration for me to enter this week for the first time.
You are the clever one!ReplyDelete
Oh goodness! I'm starting my diet tomorrow (again).ReplyDelete
Slice of life, I love it. Pictures sure do have a way of helping a person to see what others may see (yikes). Great job!ReplyDelete
I was feeling the mortification right along with her! Good job.ReplyDelete
Creative use of the prompt, and I am so glad it was a dream!ReplyDelete
And I agree with you about stamping out word verification!
Darn! Where did you find that picture of my butt?!?ReplyDelete
I loved this!
I feel like this sometimes when I'm perched on a teensy little chair in a cafe.
Perhaps I should be ordering salad sans dressing at those cafes!
Thanks for sharing this wonderful writing. I really, really enjoyed this!
