Saturday Centus #21

It's Saturday Centus again - in a nutshell, Jenny Matlock gives us a prompt from either herself or a guest submitter and then we have to write 100 or words less related to the prompt (the prompt doesn't count toward the 100 words)  Then link it up to her blog.  It's open until the following Saturday, so that means you have all week to participate by either reading or writing a Centus,  The prompt is in bold.  Check out other Centus' at http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/search/label/Saturday%20Centus



He never dreamed when he blew out the candles on his cake what would happen next. 

There was a knock at the door. The police came in and said, "Mr. Jones? Mr. Tom Jones? You are under arrest". 

"You are aware I'm the mayor, right?  What's this about"?

As they handcuffed him and put him in the cruiser he was stunned.

They drove him straight to City Hall. He couldn't understand what was happening.  As they took him out and walked in the doors, he heard "Surprise" and everyone was clapping.

From behind, his wife came and whispered in his ear "He who thinks he can never be surprised.  Gotcha".
