Write exactly 100 words, first person, fact or fiction…What I did over my Summer Vacation.
“So hello! Are you ladies ready to start another school year?”
The five women sitting around me softly cooed their responses.
“Before we get started,” the PTA president cut in, “tell me what you guys did over the summer!”
I found her fake enthusiasm nauseating.
I listened as each described their perfect summers and I resisted the urge to roll my eyes.
“So Karen, what did you do?”
The women each turned to me. I could tell they didn’t really care to hear my answer.
“I helped my husband walk again after his motorcycle accident.”
I savored their shocked expressions.
This is a themed writing meme hosted by Jenny Matlock. The goal is to write something that does not exceed 100 words (not including said prompt). The prompt appears in bold.

Love it. What a clever story. I can totally visualize all those shocked faces!
Thanks for participating.
You captured this scene so perfectly. I could sense the tension, almost see the flashing perfectly manicured talons ready to strike. And then, the zinger to end all zingers. Sorry to hear that this is partially fact based, but glad to hear that your husband is recovering well!
LOL! Oh, I liked this! You took this in such an unexpected direction. Excellent job!
Very well done! I liked the fact that the snotty group of women “softly cooed” their responses! I could just hear it! I could feel the atmosphere in that room with each woman trying to outdo the last one!
I just posted my contribution. Please stop by!
Brilliant!! … well written :o)
haha that would of shut them up for sure!
Excellent! That showed them!!
Great POV, I liked this
A welcome and fresh take on the prompt and the ending was PERFECTION!!!
Well, the accident and recovery sounds tedious and hard. The PTA part made me laugh! Hope your husband is better.
Loved this! I can be a bit sarcastic myself, sometimes!! 🙂
I loved this! A very unique take on the theme with a marvelous zinger at the end. I am sorry to hear about your husband’s accident and happy to hear that he is on the road to recovery.
Nicely crafted. Interesting to put the zing at the beginning.
Love this from the perspective of a PTA mom. I think it’s great you took something from life and threw it into a good piece of fiction.
hehe. Sorry, I just couldn’t resist!! 😀
By the way, the motorcycle accident is true (happened in April – Praise God he’s alive and getting back to normal) but my putting that information out there in front of a group of PTA moms? Totally fake.
I liked it. Shut those women up LOL. Good job.
Just joined in this writing exercise this week – what fun & loved yours!
I liked the direction you took here. And the twist at the end, too.
The PTA MOM, Great choice for a different point of view…
I liked this even before the zinger at the end.
