This week, Jenny gave us “the rest of the picture”. This little girl is graduating from kindergarten! It was difficult for me to switch my brain from the romantic story of a woman in her high heels to a kindergartener (my mind is “kinda” slow that way). I finally came up with about 200 words in response to this picture. As always, I then tackled the hard part of Saturday Centus, i.e, reducing my writing to 100 words.
Mommy wants me to enter pageants. I have to stand up straight and walk in high-heeled shoes. I had to learn to play piano. It requires hours of practice, and I still get butterflies in my stomach when I perform. I have to smile at the judges and act like I’m having fun. I think Mommy’s having more fun than me. When it’s over, sometimes I have a crown, and sometimes another girl has a crown. But, Mommy always says, “Wasn’t that fun”. I try to smile, as I look down at the shoes that are hurting my feet.
Thank you for stopping by to read my writing attempts. Be sure to check out the other responses to Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent. laurie
