Saturday Centus 21 April 2012 More please!

Welcome to


Jenny Matlock

This is where Jenny, from "Off on my tangent" brings "Saturday centus" to the flash-fiction sort of world that sometimes changes to true life experiences!

Jenny's rules for today are 105 words, any style writing, pictures okay and the prompt of,
Not for profit. For comfort.

Here's mine

The desert sun was relentless, causing your skin to feel like parchment.

"Daddy what does rub someone the wrong way mean?"

"Not now Jenny. I'm late for work and my car needs gasoline."

"Please daddy, Danny screamed it at me. Please tell me."

"Okay, it means to make someone unhappy, or uncomfortable."

"Thanks daddy!"

Later -

After Jenny's mother discovered sugar spilled across the kitchen table she ran to the sun porch.

"Danny, where's your sister?"

He pointed outside "Mom, I helped make her "Free Lemonade" sign.  Please let her do it!"

"But why free?"

"Who knows. She told me it's "Not for profit. For comfort."

Are you all comfortable now?

  Jenny drew a picture for her favorite hero.

Karen,I don't know how you always manage to create something from the prompts. I would be completely defeated by this one.

I like your new layout... Clever use of "Not for profit, for comfort!"

Wow. This was soooo good! You made this one look easy. I've been thinking about mine all week and finally figured out a mediocre one today!

I like your illustrations, too!
