Jenny Matlock

Welcome to week eighty-seven of Saturday Centus.

THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: Resolution! Schmezolution!
WORD COUNT - Not to exceed 100 words plus the 2 words of the prompt. 102 words total.

Here is my text:

Cissi and Cassy lay next to Cissi's sausage-Christmas-tree.*

'Cissi darling',
purred Cassy,'have you made any New Year's resolutions?'

Resolution! Schmezolution!' meowed Cissi stretching her furry body to its full length', We're cats! What cat makes NewYear's Resolutions?'

'The two-leggeds do it all the time. And having a Christmas tree is not a very cat-like thing to do.'

'You're right. Well, the tree goes out tomorrow and I resolve to only live like a cat. There! That's mine. What's yours, Cassy?.'

'To never make any promises I can't keep!'

'Oh,' yawned Cissi closing her eyes.

Word count according to WordCalc: 102


Best wishes,

The cats seem wiser than most humans. :)

Like the line, "To never make any promises I can't keep!"

I don't make New Year resolutions as it's only once a year. We should be looking at goals all through the year. :)

Happy meow year, Anna! Thanks for stopping by. Loved your take on the prompt with those funny felines!

Christine said...

It's a fun post, Anna. Happy New Year!

I suspect those two cats need to have a resolution to climb on the Christmas tree!

This was cute Anna!

Hope your 2012 is starting out filled with small joys and the dawning of new hopes!
