Do you know the drill? On Saturday, Jenny Matlock gives you a prompt and you have to write a story in 100 words or less. Fortunately for me, the prompt is not included in the 100 words. Of course I forgot that this week, (cut me some slack I'm new to this meme), and it came up four words over! I started to pull out some lustrous locks, but stopped short once I remembered this 'gift.'
To make things even more interesting this week, your story must be Sci-Fi! Oh, Jenny Matlock! Sci-Fi??? My least favorite genre! How clever of you. How diabolical. I'm here to exercise my shrinking brain and expand my limited horizons. You've thrown me a challenge and I can't resist. So here's my submission. The prompt is in red.
"Mommy, the man's in my closet again."
"Oh Sweetie," she sighed. "We looked twice this week. No one's there."
"Okay, get in bed with Daddy. I'll check."
In her sleep deprived state, she stumbled to Bobby's room, and on impulse crawled under the Sponge Bob comforter.
She never did decide if she was awake or asleep when she heard the man's voice:
"Damn it! I'm in the kids closet again. The first time I thought it was an innocent mistake. The second time I thought the coordinates weren't erased. But a third time?"
"Beam me up, Scottie...we need to talk."
When I do like Sci-Fi, it has to be humorous, like the short parody Hardware Wars.
What? You haven't seen it? Ah, you're probably too young. If you have a strange sense of humor and want to give it a view, click on the title. Please do this after you click on the Saturday Centus button and read the other stories. That's what I'm gonna do. You'll really like what ya read!
