Saturday Centus

It is Saturday Centus again and Jenny has a real challenge today...the prompt is "the lottery ticket" and we only have 25 words this week! For full instructions on how to play, go to: http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2011/01/saturday-centus-hey-wake-up-its-another.html.



                                           His Ticket Out
He fixed his hair, applied fresh makeup, and touched his bulbous nose. He patted the lottery ticket in his pocket. Soon no more clowning around for him!

Great job - this was really difficult for me, but you nailed it. Maybe he'll buy the circus? Kat

Hi Claudia,
Clever twist at the end.
And thanks for the link to Jenny's blog. I took the plunge today and wrote a flash fiction piece.

Cool. I love the idea of a ticket out and wonder what he will do when he's not a clown.

Namaste..........cj

I loved this. At first I wondered where this was going. I loved that he was a clown. Good job.
