This week’s 100-word Challenge from Tara at Thin Spiral notebook
calls upon us to use the word WINE in a story of 100 words.
And as she says “No more, no less”.
It was very important to impress this man who was coming to dinner. Her husband’s future and therefore, hers, was dependent on him.
She’d spent all day cleaning and tidying the house and preparing the special recipe Cindy had given her.
The dining table was set with flowers, their wedding crockery and silverware and the perfectly ironed napkins the colour of the flowers; it looked lovely.
Now, all that remained was for her to shower, dress and present herself as the perfect corporate wife.
But then a frantic call was made to her best friend, Cindy. She’d forgotten the wine.

A good one!! Thanks for sharing.
Hi Darlene. I find these posts limited to a set number of words make my brain go into overdrive. Really enjoy writing them
Cindy to the rescue!
Hi Nancy. We all need a Cindy in our lives don’t we
At least, she didn’t drink it while she cooked dinner, ha!
Or maybe that’s why Cindy had to buy more

Very clever Judith!
Thanks Thomas. Hope all’s well with you
Very nice. I found myself going along imagining every scene and feeling quite pleased and the realization about the wine created such a feeling of panic!
Thanks Chris. Long ago when we first came to NZ the big boss came from the US to visit and he came to dinner. We were in a very small rented apartment with none of our own things so I could well imagine how she felt
One reason why I keep plenty of wine on hand…
Good tip. Thanks
