It’s week #80 of Saturday Centus, that fun short story writing meme hosted by Ms. Jenny Matlock over yonder at her blog, off on my tangent. Each week our Ms. Jenny gives us a prompt and sets our imaginations loose to create stories and poems of 100-words or less. Now and then she throws us a curve ball and gives us a photo prompt or a different word count or some such twist.
(thinks to herself)
Yes, I see you mom. Everyone does.
You are embarrassing me again!
Whenever I’m involved with something you ruin it for me - like attacking my ballet instructor for not casting me as lead in “Serenade.”
One year you made harassing phone calls to the director for casting someone else to play Princess Winnifred in “Once Upon A Mattress.”
I’m not the most talented, most beautiful, most athletic, most perfect person!
I’m just Brittany, and I’m fine with that.
If only you could be too.
