Saturday Centus/Let the Games Begin









The blessing of rain continues to fall on our parched earth here this morning after a steady shower all day yesterday. It is supposed to stop near noon and clear again for a return of hot temps. I overslept a little on this dark morning, but nothing was pressing for my attention. So it is a good morning to dabble in Saturday Centus again after a long while. 

Today Jenny has given an ordinary prompt of Are you ready for some football? Yes, it is football season again and writers will have lots of imaginative fun with this one I am sure. My own Centus came in right at 100words plus the prompt...what she allowed. For more rules and more 100 word writings using the prompt go to 



                                      Let the Games Begin

Jacey spritzed fragrance and patted her hair before heading to the kitchen. Mike, with remote in his shirt pocket like a ticket to bliss, stood before an open refrigerator.

“There are frosty mugs in the freezer and a fresh hero sandwich below.”

“Thanks, Hon. You’re a sport,” he mumbled through peanuts as he headed for the TV.

She popped wine in a basket with picnic lunch and headed out the front door while the TV blared. As Jacey reached the curb, a gleaming convertible the color of midnight stopped. The handsome driver, smile as wide as an end zone asked, “Are you ready for some football?”

I guess that's a risk some men have to take when their marriage to football is more important than their marriage to their wives... :(

Well done on the prompt!!
