This post is for Week 66 of Saturday Centus...yes, that's right, last Saturday's Centus. I'm a bit slow.
Part of the problem though was that Jenny Matlock from her blog "off on my tangent," the hostess and leader of this ragtag bunch of literary rebels, the Centusians, gave us another sun-inspired prompt this week. The week before was a picture of an egg frying on a sidewalk.
Anyway, being from California, when I think of sunshine I naturally think of the beach, sand, waves, beach balls and, oh yeah, sexy hot bikini beach babes. So when it came time to choose a pic of a beach ball or a particularly gnarly wave to go with my story (because Jenny allowed us to have one this week, God bless her heart) I was torn as to which to choose. That's when it hit me to use a photo of a sexy hot bikini beach babe instead.
Yeah, I know. I was inspired.
Well, apparently there are a lot of good photos online of sexy hot bikini beach babes. Who knew?
In fact I discovered that to see all of them would take almost a week, allowing for occasional sleep and potty breaks. But after some extremely extensive research (and using up all my vacation and sick days) I can now present to you the following story based upon the prompt "you are my sunshine" with an accompanying photo.
The one catch this week was that we were only allowed to use a maximum of 50 words plus the 4 prompt words. Maybe next time we have a sun-related Centus we can do 50 photos with no words. I have a bunch downloaded and ready to go. Just saying.
Okay, so this Saturday Half-Centus is entitled "Beach Blanket Melanoma." I hope you enjoy it.
Remembering a youth spent frolicking in the surf of Malibu, Tawny hummed “you are my sunshine” as sunlight streamed through the window.
The tiny bikinis and bronze skin were just memories for this ex-beach babe.
“Mrs Campbell, the doctor will see you now.”
Skin cancer, sagging cheeks and deep wrinkles were her life now.
