So this weeks W.O.W brings us endless prompt possibilities, the directions are as follows:
Write On Wednesdays Exercise 6 - Status Anxiety: Log onto your Facebook/Twitter page and write down the first status update you see. Set a timer for 5 minutes. Write the first words that come into your head after your prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings. Do this exercise over and over if you wish. If you don't do the social media thing (there's bound to be some who haven't succumbed!) email me and I'll send you a status update from one of my social media accounts. If you feel uncomfortable about using one of your friend's status updates, consider using the most recent update on Lamebook, the home of the funniest and lamest Facebook status updates.
Alrighty, here goes:
“No we are not eating cookies for breakfast. Because I said so, that’s why!”
And aside from the obvious health implications, it might also be because Mummy possibly ate them all late last night while they was sleeping. Food makes everything better.
It always had, since Sarah was a young girl she had found comfort in food, chocolate biscuits were no exception. She tried hard to steer her children clear of this potentially self destructive path and offered them all the healthy options in the world, but sometimes late at night when she was alone with her memories she would curl up with a packet of Tim Tams.
They had spent Saturday nights for as long as she could remember lazing on the couch in front of the television with a good thriller and a packet of chocolate double coat.
Sarah missed that, she missed him, Michael had loved Tim Tams.
As she bit into them and the crumbs spilled down her chin, it reminded her of him – his big comforting arms around her, the smell of his aftershave, the sound of his voice, but mostly the twinkle in his hazel eyes as he grinned and grabbed the last biscuit from the packet, waved it in front of her teasingly for a moment before gobbling it up whole.
They had always had a lot of fun together.
