What is 100WCGU? Each week there is a prompt: a few connected words, a selection of individual words or a picture.
The prompt is (click here to visit this week’s post):
… I woke with another headache …
As usual you have 100 words to add to those making 106 all together.
Too Much Lettuce, Not Enough Mustard?
(a one-sided telephone conversation – his side)
I woke with another headache? Why would you say that?
We had a great night of slapping the lettuce on the sesame bun.
Yes, I know you could have pretended to have had a headache last night.
But when you say you woke up with a headache, well, that’s not even good English.
Yes, it’s “I awoke with a headache.” Not, “I woke with a headache.”
Jennifer, you get headaches when, you know, there’s not enough mustard on the sandwich.
And yes, you are blaming me.
And yes, my back is killing me.
You know exactly what that means.
Ouch. Her head, his back, both their egos, I think … I’d be surprised if they see each other again!
I would agree except you know that old adage:
Life and sex make for strange bedfellows.
Haha, I love how you corrected the word prompt grammar within the piece!
wow – was I right? 😉
Thanks for your two “ha” response.
There was another one a while ago where the grammar was a bit suspect. Hang on, I’ll go find it…
…Ah, here it is! I’m pretty sure it should have been recesses rather than recess: http://limebirduk.wordpress.com/2012/06/22/100-word-stories-in-the-dark-recess-of-my-mind/
I agree with you. The only way I would have a recess in my mind would be if I sent my brain to school and it went home after recess.
Otherwise, it would be the dark recesses of my mind.
Of which there are many, along with the abscesses, too.
Always a pleasure, Ms. Chapman.
LOL! nicely done…and I too, wonder if they’ll stay together other than for booty calls. But he DID call her in the morning so….. ? But which parts are the lettuce and which the mustard! LOL! might need to explore this analogy with my husband… hmmm…
also, the link you put into Julia’s place has overlapped or messed up; had to http:// and type in your title to get here.

Morning after phone calls with a debate on grammar? They say it takes all kinds…
Btw, it is correct to say you “woke up with a headache”. Slip (up)?
Okay one for awoke and one for woke.
Wake me when it’s over….
Ha! Made me laugh and cringe… I love your lettuce/bun/mustard analogy… I’ll think of this next time I have a ham sandwich! 😉
what kind of bread and condiments?
That’ll affect you too!
Thanks for stopping by. Randy
And that’s just the phone call. One has to wonder just how hard the awkward/frustrated level will spike when these two meet again.
Very realistic and even harsh to a degree. Well done!
It is a very edgy relationship.
