Saturday Centus #26

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.

STOP, STOP, STOP  That trickster Jenny decided to shake it up.   Same info above except you can only go up to 50 words.   As usual the prompt is in bold. http://jennymatlock.blogspot.com/search/label/Saturday%20Centus



"Abraham Lincoln was a lot shorter then I thought he would be", Frankie said.

"He was the tallest President ever though.  Make sure you type that in our report".

"Okay, Bob".

"Just think if we lived at that time, Mr. Johnson wouldn't be our teacher he would be a slave". 

"Ugh, Frankie, so would we".

"That would have been so not cool".

Clever use of an unusual perspective with this prompt. The characters must be African Americans.
Well done!
Best wishes,
