The Spinach Dominion - 100 words

Lily Childs has a weekly or at least semi weekly prompt challenge she runs over at her blog.  Called "Lily's Friday Prediction", it is a 100 word challenge that must incorporate the three words she comes up with.  Just another blogger trying to goose the rest of us into some creative writing.  Anyway, here is my effort for this week.

This week's words-
~Carotid Artery

The Spinach Dominion

Just back from the Spinach Dominion, Esther stepped lively to report in.

“Yo Essie?”

Ester turned to see Phil running towards her.

“What is it Phil?” She continued walking.

Phil caught up and grabbed her arm to make her stop.

“Dammitt Phil, let go. I’m late as it is.”

Phil placed a finger on her carotid artery.

“What the Hell are you doing Phil?”

“Just making sure the Essie we sent to Veggie Ville is the Essie we got back.”

Phil roasted her with his Lazgun.

The whiff of burnt onion made him conclude, no, Essie was now plant food.


Off to my own Veggie Ville ............See Ya......................

Ha! Nice one, Mike.

Randal Graves said...

Kids, just say no to vegetables.

El Cerdo Ignatius said...

Heh heh heh! "The whiff of burnt onion..."

But after reading that, I must concur with Randal.
