I am linking to Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent. Jenny has given us 100 words plus the prompt, “birthday party favor”.
DON’T FORGET TO CHECK THE WATER BALLOONS!
We had been to five stores, but Matt couldn’t find a birthday party favor for his seventh party. Finally, I gave him money to go into the drug store alone. I was relieved when he returned with two bags.
Before they left, Matt handed each guest a small package.
Matt stormed into the kitchen. “I had to pay a man to buy the water balloons, because the owner wouldn’t sell them to me. I guess he knew they weren’t any good!”
My heart dropped when I read the word “Trojan” on the box he was throwing in the trashcan!
Thanks for coming to visit my blog. Please go to Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent to find other takes on this prompt. Laurie
EDITED TO ADD: It has just been pointed out to me that I might not have read the prompt carefully enough (thanks Anita). Ooops! The prompt was “Birthday Party FLAVOR”. I will leave it to the reader to use his/her imagination to decide what flavor the water balloons were! Maybe I need to have my eyes checked for new glasses. (I probably just need to take more time reading the prompt). My apologies.
