This is Saturday Centus . The prompt must be used word for word somewhere in the story on not more than 100 words.The prompt is highlighted. For complete rules see:http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com. This week is special. Jenny says use the one hundred words with the picture as the only prompt. See picture below.








Sour Puss Pumpkin



Peter Pumpkin had his pulp in a twist.


“Look at those supercilious squash. All lined up like a military band in a fall parade. They think they’re so perfect, sneering at us like we are seedy misfits.”


“Chill, Pete,” said Patti Pumpkin.


“Separated, we stand out in our field, show our firm shapes and sun-kissed orange skins. Besides, we’ll taste just as sweet in pie.”


“Not me! I‘m no pie pumpkin. I am scary jack-o-lantern all the way!”


Patti snorted, “Agreed.”


Then she added under her breath, “With your bitter disposition, you must taste like an overgrown sour persimmon.

Fun, fun, fun. I especially love the first line and am tempted to say it five times fast. (But not that tempted.) This is great.

Claudia, I really enjoyed the conversational quality of this post. It was easy to visualize this actually happening.

What a great imagination you have!
