Saturday Centus - Would you


                     This week it's no more than 100 words plus the prompt, (106 total) and only Miss Jenny's scrumptiously delicious photo is allowed.  Any style writing.....our prompt is (nothing to do with turkey Thank goodness!)
                     "Would you like fries with that...."

Notice, these are not your everyday fries either!

My answer to Jenny's Saturday Centus request is this:

Mrs. Snodgrass, an exceedingly snooty billionaire suffered a troubling week. First, while dining at the Waldorf 16 attentive waiters showered her with the utmost attention. When they asked if she required anything else, a tiny voice spoke from behind her.

“Would you like fries with that?”

She turned to see a milk faced toddler grinning at her.


Next, her brief nightmare followed, landing her at NYPD’s 5th Precinct after being hurdled from a moving sedan while blindfolded and gagged.

Officer DuGood asked, “Do you remember anything about your capture?”

“Yes, a crackling voice over a bad intercom said, “Would you like fries with that?  Who eats fries?"

You know the drill, if you want to read some more really awesome posts.....or if you'd rather just have more fries, or care to share your own version please do!  Just go here okay?

This one left me chuckling. Love the humor and the direction you took with this prompt. You are right those are no ordinary fries.

LOL you are so funny, I LOVE IT! :)

darlin said...

LOL good one! Next time I hear someone ask if I want fries with that I think that I'll just LOL! :-) said...

You took this in very creative directions. I especially like the last line. Fries are not for snoddy people.

It is the one question which always will get the answer "yes" from me. Imagination and fries : lovely combination.

The prompt reminded me of a post I read on a blog recently titled, Would you like fun with that? Great! I always love your creative surprises!

This was fun...snotty woman knows not the weighty joys of munching fries, with a book in hand and a TV set blaring somewhere...and gym hopping (literally, because of the leg cramps) a decade later. :)

I like it. I don't eat fries anymore but they sure did look good. Great writing.

Jenny said...

Karen, this was so wonderfully original.

Very, very clever.

And the picture just made me realize I forgot to eat lunch!

Sadly, it won't be fries, though!
