Pick Two for a 100-word Story

After having so much fun last week, I decided to continue the madness and write a second 100-word story.  Interestingly, this week's topic is a pick two from the following: Corner, Tiger, Tie, Please, Encountered, Obsolete, Winter, Webcam.

Stripes, Tiger, Animal, Tail, Mammal

Jeremy spent the last week preparing himself for battle – tweaking his blank stare after heading advice from his webcam chat room buddies.

He knew he was ready. Then he heard it: “Let’s play Family Feud!”

First to the podium and ready to face off against an exquisite brunette named Sally,

little did Jeremy know that she had also prepared.  Her with her leopard print slip under her pencil skirt.

Jeremy, however, was not to be undone, for he had chosen well: his tiger-striped bow tie that showed proudly.

With a flick of his wrist. Buzzer! “Answer?”

“Banana split!” Ding!


Thanks for reading and listening (3:30)!

I've been a long time listener to The 100 Word Stories Podcast and this week I decided to write my first story!

The topic of this weeks’ story: “Smartypants”
By Dr. Alex

My three year old and I have an agreement of reading two books per night before bed, and this has never been broken.

After this evening’s tantrum over wanting to eat from the trapezoid plate, I was sure she had chosen her “crabby pants” PJs.  No, they were this week’s usual Peppa Pig outfit.

An hour later, we finished “The Five Little Firemen,” without so much as a whisper.  She scanned her bookshelf and chuckled while reaching for her second book: “Richard Scarry’s Best Storybook Ever - 82 Wonderful Stories.”

Clearly, she had chosen her “smarty pants” to sleep in.

Hear me start my story around minute 2:30:

Thanks for reading!
