Saturday Centus - If I die young...

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

I post these on Friday night (do you really think I get up at 3 am to make this live?) so the drawing from last week won't happen until Saturday evening or sometime Sunday. I'll notify you by e-mail AND put up a post.

It's a little bit cooler this week (barely hitting 105) so I thought I would quit being quite so penurious with words.

WORD COUNT - Up to 150 words AND the 4 words of the prompt (154 total maximum words)
STYLE OF WRITING - Any
NO PICTURES ALLOWED
THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: "If I die young..."


The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.

Please display my 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!

I can't believe it only 105? Glad the cool breeze must be knocking on your door?!!! Hope your cold is better too, and how exciting we have 154 total words! Funny when I first read the prompt it was like, hmmm what can I write, and suddenly like a ton of bricks flew through my door...just the very thought of it my post just wrote itself...amazing stuff, these prompts you give us! Have a really great weekend!

Disclaimer: This will probably come off as rude but it is meant to be funny and I hope you take it that way.

Link 14 Living with memory loss apparently forgot to write the centus. I can not find it on her blog :-)

Dear Jenny,
This was not an easy assignment. I started yesterday, but had to put it aside and am posting this Sunday at 11:30 am, Swedish time.
I'm glad I got it done, even if I had to write this in a special way to avoid actually writing a poem.
I am constantly being interrupted and cannot write anything that demands my full attention. No rhyming.
Best wishes & hugs,
Anna

Thanks for hosting this fun linky! I'm enjoying the word count! Hope your week is going better! Kinda in a slump today...just got back from VA and dropping my daughter off at college. Not any easier this year than last!
Reading your blog always puts a smile on my face because it's like you're talking from inside my head!
