I can't believe it's Saturday Centus again! I love this themed writing meme hosted by the fab Ms. Jenny Matlock at "off on my tangent". If you'd like to join us, head over there for this week's prompt and the full rules. To sum up, you get 100 words to write your short, short story, inserting the prompt words intact anywhere in the story. Then just link up to Jenny's, and we'll come read yours! It's great fun, and I've found so many great blogs to follow. This week's prompt is in italics, the rest is mine.

“Sorry, mom, but the audition is tomorrow. You know I want to be Dorothy.”
Sighing, I left my office. The deadline could wait. My daughter needed my attention.
