My friend Steve Lewis gathers his friends and writing group members for an annual summer day response to a prompt. This year it was, “Why Not?”
I could be a listener or write something too. Why not?
Oh, and it had to be exactly 87 words.
I wrote something I didn’t much like. I chickened out when the time came. But, I was inspired. And, they were nice people too. Why not now?
Premeditated Chatter in Exactly 87 Words
It’s too hot. It’s too cold.
It’s very dark, I’m too old.
I could just work, my emails ding. Don’t be jerk — think about other things.
I can’t sit still, my desk’s a mess, my hair is dirty and I confess I don’t much want to meditate. Besides, I just ate. Aren’t I supposed to wait an hour or two?
My bed’s unmade, My hair is dirty, Oh my God it’s now 9:30! I can’t, there’s a deadline today… Why not count breaths anyway?
