Mistress of Mischief, Michelle, has decided to have a little fun. In her own words:
In 100 words or less, write a story using the words ride, post, soulless, local, dehydrator, girdle. Your story may take on any form you wish. The only two rules are 1. you can't simply list the 6 words; you must actually craft them into something creative, and 2. you must use ALL six of them.
I think I used to do this in creative writing classes in HS. All righty then. I'm game. And feel free to play along in the comments. Here goes:
It was hot out. So hot that the sweat collected on the underside of my girdle and chafed in places you don't want to know about. But I stayed at my post, watching the local folk go by. Most people are soulless puppets who wouldn't give your granny a ride to the hospital if she was sprawled in the middle of the road covered in dollar bills. Either way, by the time I got out of that crazy getup, my torso was gonna look like jerky fresh out of the dehydrator my dead sister got me last year for Christmas.
There ya go. 100 on the nose. Be sure to head on over to the Awesome Abby's blog to see what kind of story she's going to brew up for us!
