Ms Jenny has given us another interesting Saturday Centus. I don’t know how she comes up with them. This week, the prompt sounds like the beginning of a recipe. But sometimes, following a recipe can lead to, well, just read on and you’ll see. Sorry if it’s not exactly light-hearted, but this is what came out. Be sure to click the link and check out the other entries.
Prompt: Cream together butter and sugar
Recipe Lost 105 words
“Cream together butter and sugar.”
The words blurred before her eyes. She blinked and read them again. She walked over to the refrigerator, grabbed a carton of cream, and returned to the recipe book.
Cream? That’s not right. She re-read the words.
“Butter and sugar.” Repeating the words like a mantra, she returned the cream, grabbed the butter, then stood there, trying to remember where she stored the sugar. She found it on the third try.
Back to the recipe, sugar in hand. No butter. She must have set it down, but where?
What is happening to me? She slumped to the kitchen floor, lost.
