Saturday Centus - Shake up!

OK, 25 words was tough.

But here is my little SC shake-up offering. The prompt is in bold!


Checked the numbers,
Screamed a lot.
Where’d you put it?
You forgot?
You know you won?
Hold on a minute.
To win you need
the lottery ticket!
MISPLACED?!?!?

OMGosh!! I totally had that dream a few years ago. My brother-in-law bought me a lotto ticket and gave it to me. I put it somewhere that I wouldn't lose it...and of course I won. But for the life of me I couldn't find it and everyone was mad. Like, really mad.
It was so sad. THIS is why I don't buy LOTTO tickets...or guns.

Oh man, oh man. I would tear that house up from one end to the other. Might even dig through the trash. Oh who am I kidding, I would be dumpster diving in a heartbeat! This was a great way to use the prompt Jenny. Hey, maybe that's how my protagonist ended up having his heart attack! Kat

Any one of those lines would make a good prompt. Because, well, because I didn't read the instructions right I thought you were offering a few choices.

Jo said...

Great little poem, Jenny!
Meow!
As a nocturnal, four-footed feline, I have little experience with lottery tickets. Paper, yes. But mostly the little paper balls that Mother throws at me to play with.
I don't know how I would react if I won on the lottery and could not find the ticket. Sometimes Mother says that she wishes that everything was a cell-phone that you could dial and hear a ring-signal from where it is. I'm a pretty good little mouser though, so anything little, I usually can dig out!

Purrs,
Sara Cat

That would be just my luck!

Do you see Jo up there all excited about the next one? She used to be a wallflower at these events. Now she's addicted.

I blame you. And yes I spurred her on some myself but it's not my meme so really it's more your fault than mine.

Nice nice nice! The essence of reality you've brought to this particular week's assignment is a Nobel Laureate winner for sure.

Oh man, if it was me I would have washed it in my jeans pocket.
