I missed last week’s Challenge, so, here is the 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups, going on Week #40 =)
Since this is the 40th week of the 100WC4GU, Julia chose our promt to be “Ruby”. We can do whatever we like as far as genre is concerned and the only rules are that it is only 100 words long and is suitable for a PG certificate. =)
My kids inspired me this week, particularly my toddler. If you don’t know what “Max and Ruby” is, it is a children’s cartoon that comes on PBS Kids. =)
And without further ado…
“I WANNA WATCH MAX ‘N RUBY NOW!” the Monster of Sheffield Lane bellowed. I huffed and put my hands on my hips, assuming the “assertive” stance.
“It’s not on right now, so pick something else,” I said as evenly as I could manage. I think that I’m good with kids, but after five minutes of being Mindy’s sitter I was ready to throw in the towel. Shoes don’t buy themselves, however.
She dissolved into a temper tantrum just as phone rang. I picked up the cordless and walked out. “Hello, Lafayette Residence.”
“Nine – Fifteen,” a male voice intoned, then disconnected.
