Saturday Centus - It Takes A Mighty Big Chair To

THIS IS A SATURDAY CENTUS POST

              ....and we are live from the chilly side of the lake, where diving is nearly impossible, without a severe headache! 
     If only!  Really this is being staged for Miss (had a horrible-tooth issue Jenny) at Saturday Centus, "Off on my tangent" blog (So sorry hope you're all better SOON) and in her distress, she offers a photo of a chair, "to use or not to use" but her prompt is a must, "The chair dominated the small room" and up to 100 words with it...and more photos if we desire.

Are you game?




From the Capital in St Paul, Minnesota......"The chair dominated the small room....."

At the end of the meeting there were sullen faces and no more coffee.



But who really cares what a silly chairperson has to say?

They can try to pass silly laws......

It's not size or who a person is that really matters.

It's about who we are, inside.

.....and how we make the most of what we've got that truly matters!



WE CAN DO ANYTHING

So how about playing along with us?  If you want to share your own Centus or just read more

Interesting take on the prompt...ah, yes, some chairpersons think their chair is quite larger than the rest in the room!

Sometimes one who claims to speak for the good of all doesn't really think of others. Neat old pic!~Ames

Good job on the Saturday Centus, Karen! :)

I found your story here on my way to 6WS this morning and decided to try one for myself.

It is on my other blog, "Jim's Little Photo and Poem Place."

"it's about who we are inside" amen to that sister. Amazing picture, I wish sometimes that I could go back and hang out in some of those old pictures, just for a minute though. Great job!

Once Upon an Equine said...

Very clever and I love how you used the photos with it.

Dreaming said...

Yeah...I've known some of those chairs! Nice twist!

Max Sartin said...

Love your chair photo and story! I'm going to try to come up with something of my own, if I find some time today.

Elizabeth Hernandez said...

Galen Pearl said...

Ha! I didn't think of chair that way. You are so clever!

Rek said...

Your centus was spot on, thought provoking without being preachy.
They say its the idle ones who come up with silly laws to entertain themselves. Loved this, I am gonna use it for my writing since I don't follow formal advice.

Honey said...

Very inspirational. Nice take on the prompt.

Kara said...

I love this one. And I love the photos as well. Makes me want to go fight city hall..or go swimming!

Unusual and quick-witted interpretation of this prompt! You have really been thinking outside of the box!

Karen S. said...

Anna, thanks....I have a lot of fun with the Saturday centus prompts!

Jenny said...

This was incredible!

I love what you did here! Really, really love it!

That picture totally made the writing come to life.

And it's odd, perhaps, but I could hear a voice reading this outloud in my head!

I wonder if it would really sound like you if I heard you in person!

Awesome link!

Jenny thanks! I had to come back and read this post all over again...it's like so past 40 seconds ago! ha ha! Hope you're catching up on all that reading! ;)
