Julia, of Julia’s Place, has just released the prompt for this week’s 100-Word Challenge for GrownUps. It’s a doozy:
….Murray was just about to serve for the Championship when…
Murray’s First Serve
Murray and I had asked for this; we knew better, and we understood what a mess this would be. We both needed the cash, and this Championship seemed a good way to get some. We circled the guests, offering cold drinks, and nibblies. The contestants lined up behind the competition table; what an odd bunch this was. Then again, why wouldn’t they be?
Murray had been assigned the first round of the tournament; he lifted his tray, while I watched. Murray was just about to serve for the Championship, when he was knocked back by the last contestant to arrive. The 57th International Pancake Eating Contest was beginning!
