This is a completely fictional story from a male point of view. I was inspired by Preston Sturgess' film Sullivan's Travels. The voice I heard in my head telling me this tale was Humphry Bogart's Charlie Allnut, from the film, The African Queen.
Here are Mrs. Jenny Matlock's instructions:
Welcome to week ONE HUNDRED of Saturday Centus.
Holy my goodness.
Is that possible?
I'm not that good at blog programming...
I figured the icing would melt on the cupcakes...
I thought it might be fun to go back to where this little meme started.
For old times sake, let's use the first prompt...EVER!
Here's a link to the first SC ever...be prepared to drop your jaw at the lengthy first prompt I came up with!
The prompt this week is: My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.
Number of words: 100 plus the 53 words of the prompt. Geez, I was wordy with the prompts back then!
Style of writing: Any
Pictures: As many extra pictures as you like
The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.
Please display my link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.
E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!
