You are given a prompt.
Answer the question in exactly 42 words, don't rely on a word processor.
Use correct spelling and punctuation.
Do not use the prompt either in your title or story.
Your story must make sense to the reader, even if they don't know the question.
Think that's easy? Try one yourself...
Last week's question was: Why are you naked?
I did not enter last week, but my good blogging buddy Kathy at "The Giggling Truckers Wife Write" took second place. You may read her story here.
Kathy sometimes bounces ideas off me to see if things work/make sense. She's brilliant and rarely needs my help, as in this case I told her it was great! But in true perfectionist mode she didn't listen to me, tweaked it a little more and nearly won!!! Goes to show what I know.
It got me to thinking (again, I DO realize how scary that is), what would I have done with that?!?
So I wrote one myself, too late to enter...but not too
First date with the man of my dreams and I'm late...

Open the door, her cat shoots out! Chasing, the towel drops...door closes. Locked.
