Life Slices will explore living moments.
Expressing and exposing the best and the worst of life,
as well as those everyday but taken-for-granted experiences,
Life Slices will feature situations that affect
each of us in some important way.
Inspired by Boy With a Hat’s “50 Word Story a Day Keeps the Boredom Away”
And the contradictoryoptimists’ “100words-100stories-100days”,
“Life Slices” will portray slices of life in 50 words or less.
Eighty-Six is Enough
Nellie smiled. “Eighty-six is enough. I’ll do a few last things at home with my family.”
The doctors pleaded, “A biopsy will diagnose ovarian cancer, and extend your life.”
Her family convinced her.
During the procedure, they punctured a blood vessel.
Nellie died, alone, within six weeks of hospital hell.
