A big Thanks to Julia, of Julia’s Place, for this challenge and for this week’s prompt, which is:
…but I turned it off….
This challenge is an exercise in creative writing, and for me, in sharp editing skills. I think the polite way to say this is that I often exhibit story-telling run-over. KISS — Keep it Simple, Sister. (you notice, I hope, that I did not call myself stupid.)
I was afraid I’d leave the iron on, but I turned it off. I think. No, I’m sure. Well, I’m not sure, but isn’t it one of those power-saver gadgets that shuts itself off after a few minutes? Which would mean that I didn’t turn it off; I left it to turn itself off. But who wants to trust an iron to have that kind of smarts? Or to care at all? Maybe I should go home. But I turned it off. I think. No, I’m sure I did. I’m really not sure. But why wouldn’t I turn it off? I did, didn’t I?
