100 Word Challenge - Behavior

What follows is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, normally authored by the impeccably correct Velvet Verbosity, but temporarily authored by me and hosted by me, here. The Challenge word today is "Behavior".

100 Word Challenge


The Wedding Reception


The two of them stood outside the door to the banquet hall, he in his Sunday suit, she in a pretty black dress she wore way too seldom.

"C'mon, Babe. Let's go in."

She looked at her husband, missing two front teeth because of a bar fight last month, with Billy Bob Greenway. Across the street, she could see the Tivoli Theater, a place he was barred from for lighting farts with Billy Bob Greenway, last week. Billy Bob Greenway had just walked in, in front of them.

"Let's go home, Jimmy Joe."
"Home?"
"Sure. There's beer in the fridge."


Ndinombethe, y'all.

As I've told you, I'm sooo far behind on reading 'Sarah' that I can't just pick it up now. That being said, at least I can enjoy your talent for writing with the 100 Word Challenge!

This was great. It makes you wonder what their story was before this glimpse and after, yet 100 words are enough.
