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):
… and winter will bring …
As usual you have 100 words to add to those making 104 all together.

And Winter Will Bring?
That’s the subject.
What are you gonna write?
Write about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Nobody cares about dwarfs.
That’s ‘cause you’re a dwarf.
And that is politically incorrect. You’re gonna flunk the course.
It’s a blog.
No, a blog.
Whatever. What else?
A rash? And winter will bring a rash?
Every winter I get one.
The cold chafes my thighs, and bingo! A rash.
I’m not writing about that.
It’s a good story.
No, it isn’t.
What d’you know? You write for a log.
A riff vaguely reminiscent of “who’s on first?” One of my favorite routines. (I imagined it in their voices. 🙂 )
That’s whose name?
The guy on first.
The guy on first.
That’s what I’m asking.
And I’m telling you.
I love it. I laugh as I write this. I have this skit up on my wall and I read/think of it often.
That was a fresh take on the prompt! And reminded me of how knackered my skin gets during Winter.
Thanks for commenting. I hated that rash that I’d get.
What’s the politically correct word for a dwarf? Vertically challenged? But isn’t that a midget?
Oooh. I like it!
I like how you think.
A midget might be considered as someone who is “floor bored.”
I think I hear the ACLU or some other organization calling us.
Someone with height related issues? though that could be about giants or anyone really. Some people who are five foot eleven have issues with not being six foot. Oh how I mock them
what a different an inch makes
(I know. That’s what she said.)
and for those of us who are truly vertically challenged, while I envy your ability to get things off of the top of the refrigerator, I completely mock you when you drop something precious! LOL!
That seems to sum up the long and the short of it.
I like it! Those 100-worders are a great opportunity to try out something different aren’t they. Is that last like meant to say log or should it be blog?
It was supposed to reflect the speaker’s misunderstanding of “a course vs a blog” by calling it a log rather than a blog; and again, sort of. trying to insult the other speaker in this dialogue.
Oh..er…yeah, I knew that!
Loved the repartee! nicely done and a great, unique take on the prompt…kind of my first thoughts but not nearly so organized!
do you write on a log, too? 😉
You’ve made me smile this afternoon, loved it.
I love to smile.
Glad you’re smiling.
Can always rely on you for a giggle. Clever as ever!
My sympathies. I hear you fell off a log? Or just drifted off course?
ha. I love it when readers play along. Great responses.
I try. I love humor.
How fun. I like the riff on Whose on First.
This is terrific! And you have caught the spirit of Abbot and Costello perfectly. If they were still with us, they would get the greatest kick out of your post.
One of the best comedy routines of all time. But forget the dwarfs. I want to hear what you do with Snow White!
I’m not that familiar with Abbott and Costello (sharp intake of breath from readers) but I could imagine a routine going like this. Neat.
Here is on of their classic routines. I still laugh hysterically listening to it.
They are masters in timing and language. No cue cards – lots of ad-libbing
ha ha ha ha ha! This is great! I loved it!
What? I don’t know who’s on first. 😉
A very very clever bit of nonsense – I love this! 😀
Oh, you must have meant “Nunsense”, not nonsense.
Nunsense is a very different parody that Abbott and Costello perform in drag.
All right, now I really need the emoticon for sticking your thumbs in your ears, wiggling your fingers, and putting your tongue out in and out while winking your eyes alternately!
I love it!
A great session of banter!
Banter – what a nice “B” word.
