Saturday Centus - Before I die...

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week sixty-four of Saturday Centus.

And...

...it's gonna be another shake up week.

A deep thoughts kind of shake up week.

Don't groan.

You know you like it.

The prompt this week is inspired by this cool building in New Orleans...


And the prompt, of course, is:

"...Before I die I want to..."

And since those teensy weensy lines on the building wall aren't super long, I thought we should use only 15 words.

So, for this weeks challenge, in addition to the six words of the prompt, you can use UP TO 15 additional words. And...you can use a picture!

I'm intriqued to see what everyone writes.

Please try to visit as many of the other links as possible. If you get a chance, perhaps you can visit the last five or so from last weeks challenge as well.

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

E-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Jenny, this is a gift. Permission to post a picture is a balm for my soul.

Pictures inspire me. Thanks for allowing it this time. I'm amazed that I could only use 15 words. Thanks for the challenge!

You do realize that I was quite upset with you, yesterday, when I first read of you only allowing 15 words this week. Who can write a story in only 15 words? Well apparently many could. So I finally bit the bullet and tried to pen one myself. Guess what? I did it. It may not be pretty but it is what it is and I call it done! Thanks for having faith in us as you crack that allegorical whip to help us be better writers. Love you!

I thought I'd misread it - 15 words! Well, succinctness doesn't come easily, but it seems lots of people have responded:-)
