Lunch is served

No need for proper plates and cutlery as she shovels handfuls of food into her cavernous mouth. Stray bits of corn chips, salsa, and shreds of cheese, leave a trail of crumbs from table to chair.

Tiny orts are scattered across an ample chest, forming tottering pyramids on her lunch shelf. A rumbling belch creates an earthquake that shakes the cheddar and maize temples to the ground.

Flicking any remaining dregs from her clothing, she waddles into the kitchen, stowing her stash in the pantry. She crosses to the sink, only then remembering there are no dirty dishes to do.

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Doing the dishes.’

Trifecta, a weekly one-word prompt, challenges writers to use that word in its third definition form, using no less than 33 words or no more than 333. The week’s prompt is: Ample [adj. \ˈam-pəl\] 3: buxom, portly

  1. Your words: “Tiny orts are scattered across an ample chest…” convey a vivid and discomforting image. The whole piece is very well done, I was just hoping as I read that something would happen which would redeem this woman, but this was not to be.
