Was It Something I Said? A Saturday Centus


It is week 143 of Jenny Matlock's fun and challenging writing meme, Saturday Centus, from her blog, "off on my tangent."  This week Jenny has provided a photo from which to inspire our 100-word maximum stories and poems.  It's been awhile but I thought I would give it a go this week and see what happened.  My effort this week is entitled: 

Was It Something I Said?

Walking out to the garden, I spied my wife toiling away in the hot sun. 

I gave her a quick hug. “You know you don’t smell as bad as I thought you would?"


“I mean you don’t sweat much for a woman your size.” 


She glanced at the large ripe tomato at her side. 

 “You want to throw that at me, don’t you?”

“No, I was thinking I could make you salsa with it.”

"Can you make it now?" I asked, turning back toward the house.

That’s when it struck me in the head.

  4. I do not leave many responses, however I read a ton of responses on "Was It Something I Said? A Saturday Centus".
    I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind.
    Could it be just me or does it look as if like a few of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead individuals?
    :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I'd like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you post a list of every one of your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
