Cathy stomped along the hiking trail, fury urging her to go faster.
Ethan huffed behind her. “Come on, Cath, you’re over-reacting!”
She ducked under a low tree branch, and then giggled when she heard the thwack followed by a string of expletives. Serves him right.
“Why can’t you believe me? I love you.”
She stopped and whirled around. “Love. Really? What I heard is that you want to be a bachelor.”
“I never said that!”
“Your karaoke choice did.”
“You’re the one who asked me to sing.”
“A love song, ignoramus. “Baby Got Back” is not a love song!”
If you are not familiar with “Baby Got Back“, this link will take you to a YouTube video. If you have heard the song, you know why Cathy would be so upset! This song was big when I was in high school, but it’s not a song I’d want my kids listening to, so listen at your own risk. You’ve been warned 🙂
This is my response to Trifecta’s extra-special 99th challenge post.
“This week we are giving you a page from the Oxford English Dictionary. The ninety-ninth page, to be exact. (Click to enlarge.) From this page, you can choose any word, any definition, to use in your post. (Please type your chosen word in bold, so we know.) And instead of our typical 33-333 word limit, we are asking for 99 words exactly.”
If at least 99 writers link up, there will be a random drawing for a $99 Amazon gift card. So why not join in?
Once again, this is a community-voted challenge, which means that readers have the opportunity to vote on their three favorites by visiting Trifecta’s site after the challenge closes on Thursday, at 8PM Eastern time.
