100 Word Challenge - hour

What follows is in response to 100 Word Challenge authored by the venerated Velvet Verbosity. I had thought to do a 100 word Haiku, but it's not Friday - and I really wasn't happy with what I did, anyway.

"Want to go upstairs?", he asked.
"Nah, I don't think I'm in the mood."
"Oh, come on. It could be fun."
"Yeah, I know your idea of fun", she said.
"What's that supposed to mean?"
"I don't want to get into that, right now."
"No. What did you mean?", he asked again.
"Okay .. It's always you, you, you and it takes five minutes and boom, it's all over. I'm left hanging and you go to sleep. Okay?"
He opened the bag and showed her the 'toys'.
"These could take an hour, or so", he said.
"Oh ... at least", she said.

This one was fun. Actually, I sorta wish I had another few hundred words to play with. I'm willing to bet I could have raised my readership numbers a bit.

For those who asked (one, I think) about the picture from Wordless Wednesday, it was taken from the deck of a boat which had just passed under the Golden Gate. In June of 2005, while we were on vacation. Taken with a Sony, DSC-S70. I love San Francisco.

Happy 4th of July. I know it's tomorrow, but I'm going to jump the gun by a day and say it now, because I'm not sure how many will have the time to blog tomorrow. So say it today - Happy 4th of July. And be safe.

kelley: I was hoping you would like it.

I see, Lou. Going for the soft porn audience, are we?

Tash said...

this is the second of my "daily blogs" (as in blogs I read daily) that has a pornographic twist to it...

Brilliant 100 words though - doubt I could do it. You're incredibly talented

LceeL said...

thegrandview: Yes, Mike, I am. Unabashedly so. Got to keep 'em interested, don't you know?

tash: I have read your writing - and yes you could. 100 Words, that is. I assume that's what you were referring to. and yes, there is a 'twist' here. Ask Annie. SHE'LL tell you I'm twisted.

Queen Goob said...

So......how long DID it take?

Happy fourth to you, too. I'll be around.

jientje said...

I've got to hand it to you, you're one hell of a writer, and I enjoyed every word of those hundred, ( didn't count them though!). I would like another scoop of the same please?

jientje said...

Oh and yes ...
Belgium IS green too.
That's true.

LceeL said...

queen goob: I'll be around, too. And it took ... a looooonnnngggg time.

Jientje: Thank you. More? Perhaps a bit later. But I'm beginning to wonder about my audience, though. I think they may be even more twisted than I am. My Tuesday Tale elicited calls for stories about an Alien Jesus with a penchant for sex. I love you guys.

Amy @ Milk Breath and Margaritas said...

LOVE it. Gotta love a guy with a bag of good toys.

Thanks for visiting me!

Christy said...

Oh, Alien Jesus wouldn't need a bag of toys....he'd be like a sexual Inspector Gadget.

And his best gadget would be a cloning device so his lady could be serviced right and left.....so to speak.

There'd be toe-sucking Alien Jesus (1), and on up!

It would be a gang bang without the guilt and occasionally ugly incident.....

Alien Jesus? Germ free. Pregnancy free--unless getting knocked up gets you off. Oh, and getting knocked up by Alien Jesus could even be an immaculate affair, if you weren't in the mood...

Sandy C. said...

I'm willing to bet your hits more than double today :-D

Gotta love a man bearing gifts ;)

Wishing you and yours a safe and happy 4th!

LceeL said...

Amy: glad you liked it. Oh, and I'll be back.

Christy: My goodness. You seem to have this clear picture in your mind ... so far, your picture is better than mine.

Hyphen Mama said...

DOH! Amy got my line. Teach me to dawdle over breakfast.

Anyway... I, too, love a man with a bag of toys.

5 minutes. Bad. An hour... GOOD.

LceeL said...

Sandy: "man bearing gifts". I don't know that I ever said this was autobiographical - but I HAVE been known to do whatever it takes.

Hyphen mama: Yeah, SWMBO thinks so too.

OHmommy said...

UUUmmmm... yea those next 100 would have definately rocked your numbers. Teehhee... it is getting hot in here.

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

I laughed at Mike's comment. He's so dry. Happy 4th dear. I hope you and the Mrs enjoy some fireworks.

Renee Daniels said...

omg I loved it. Excellent work, as always. I'm still chuckling although I have to say alot is over the other commenters. You guys are great

Alice said...

Now THAT was more my speed! *fans self*

Tenakim said...

Sounds like we can count on a sequel, huh?

redchair said...

Wow! You're a spicy guy today.
Very clever 100 word story. You're such a good writer Lou. Happy 4th back at you.
Vikki

tiff said...

Oh! I've come over all hot and dizzy!
I like those hundred words, Lou.

When can we have the next hundred?

LceeL said...

OHmommy: I don't know what's more fun: writing something like that orseeing the reactions.

AFF: Yes, there were fireworks.

renee daniels: Glad you liked. And yes, my readers are FABULOUS.

alice: Fasten your seat belt. Things are going to be getting better.

tenakim: You betcha.

redchair: Thank you, Vikki.

tiff: Which is why I'm more fun at a distance.

Huckdoll said...

LOL....I love the redchair comment, "Wow. You're a spicy guy today."

My thoughts exactly.

Shadow said...

love it!

secret agent mama said...

Now that's my kinda stuff right there! Sexed up 100 Words are the BOMB.

Lots of Love to You Lou...

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

That's a lot of fun. I tend toward racier stuff at times (look up my post titled Chapeau), but was concerned that the VV site owner wouldn't appreciate it (past experience raising its head here).

LceeL said...

SHG: I suppose VV has her boundaries, but I haven't run into them - at least, not in the Challenges. She seems to appreciate 'racier' as much as the next guy.
