Saturday Centus #72

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.  The prompt is in blue.

This week is a shake up.  We get 32 words including the prompt and it has to be to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.  Blech, Yucky, Ugh, lol


Aching, aching, body parts,
Isn't there a pill for this?
In the autumn of my life,
I'm not liking this one bit.

Aching, aching, body parts,
Isn't there a pill for this?

Oh my goodness. Perfection! I just turned 50 and my body parts are creaking, snapping, popping, and aching! You always do a great job with these prompts and we can always expect something "different" from you! Love it!

Nowadays the aching limbs begin much earlier...wish there was one such miracle pill, my mom and aunts could use it....great write!!

Deborah said...

Aaw, wonderfully written ... yes if only there were a magic pill! :o)

As I wrote on Judie's post, this challenge shows how differently we all think about the seasons. For one Autumn is a dreaded time of year, while for another it is a welcome relief afer a long hot summer.
Best wishes,
Anna
