Saturday Centus #5

 Today is Saturday Centus.  Mr. Jenny at Jenny Matlock's gives us a prompt and then we have to write 100 words or less not counting the prompt which is in bold.  You can do it until next Saturday.  So go on over and read/write it's a lot of fun. http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/2010/06/saturday-centus-week-5.html

What a day, I thought to myself.  After the big storm last night my electricity was out and it was already 90 degrees. As I drove out my driveway the sweat was rolling down my face. How stupid that I didn't get the car air conditioner fixed.  Everywhere in the neighborhood all I saw were downed trees and wires.

When I got to the next town, it was like the storm never came through. I noticed the small movie theater and decided to go in to get out of the heat. 


I settled into the comfortable movie theater seat with awkward 3D glasses perched on my nose, a small tub of popcorn on my lap, and a bottle of water lodged into the seat holder.

This reminds me how before we had air conditioning, when I was a kid, I would go to the corner market and open the frozen food section doors!

Nice!

Oh, how many times have we gone to the movies to get out of the heat! I've also gone for drives with the AC on, but that didn't work for your character!

Cathryn said...

Here we go to the local WallyWorld to get out of the heat when the electricity is off! LOL How wonderful your story is to the prompt!

Jenny said...

Loved this Viki! And since it is 5:45 pm here and I was just hanging out a load of laundry and almost experiencing heat stroke I can totally relate to that great idea!

Sue said...

I wish I had a bowl of popcorn right now!

Good job, with a nice segue.
