What is 100WCGU? Each week there is a prompt: a few connected words, a selection of individual words or a picture.
The prompt is:
… It Is Not My Fault …
As usual you have 100 words to add to those making 105 all together.
It Is Not My Fault That There Are 282 Words In This Story!
(Somebody else threw in those extra 182 words. I swear it is not my fault)
I’ve given up saying, “It’s not my fault.”
It’s always my fault. No one believes me anyway when I tell them that it wasn’t.
My family even gave me 10,000 business cards that read “It’s not my fault” with my email address, Facebook name, and cell phone number on them.
You see, I am the one who eats the entire package of Oreos and only leaves one left in it for the next person. I am the one who leaves the last sip in the soda bottle. I am the one who leaves the last bit of toilet paper on the roll and doesn’t make sure there’s another fresh roll for somebody else.
I am the one who kicks the kickball inside the house and breaks the window. I am the one who leaves the last crumb of chocolate cake on the serving plate along with the dirty cake slicer (which I did slide my fingers across to get the last piece of icing off of). I am the one who eats all the cut up hot dogs out of the leftover baked beans.
I used to leave my business cards alongside these things. Now I don’t even bother.
I just can’t stop myself from doing these things, but even when it isn’t me, I still confess to it.
Confessing has become such a way of life now that I am entering the ministry
My family is already writing the higher-ups telling them to hide the wine, lock the refrigerator doors, and be ready to have me do a lot of penance.
I like that they have so much faith in me.
I’m sure that I will pass that faith along to a whole flock of others.
