Hmm. Another challenge. Another blogging contest. The winner gets bragging rights and feels good for a moment or two. Velvet Verbosity runs the contest. It is simply called "100 Words". 100 words on a subject picked weekly by the host. This week it is "Faster". Here goes.
"Who do you think is faster?"
Said Slug to Caterpillar as he scurried past.
"Why me of course", Caterpillar said. "I have many legs, you have none."
"Is it so important to be fast", Slug wondered. "Think of all you miss moving at such break neck speeds."
Caterpillar turned, twitched his antenna in that condescending caterpillar way and huffed, "Anything I do not see cannot be worth seeing. So why slow down?"
Caterpillar picked up the pace just as Slug shouted out, "Well slowing down can be a lifesaver." And Caterpillar was lost under the heel of a passing boot.
It appears I was too late to submit this for consideration. Reading rules and instructions has never been my strong suit. But after spending more than what some folks would consider a sane amount of time on it, I am damn well going to post it here anyway. Damn rules. It was a tough one.
