100 Word Challenge: Madness

Here is a picture of my cat, Issy, being ever so helpful while I was manically interfacing with a digital customer service representative for my medical insurance provider. After an hour I had reached “Critical Mass” and was grateful said customer service rep could neither see, nor hear me. I probably would not have received any further assistance had that been the case.

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “madness” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.

  1. The photo of your sweet kitty reminded me of our two kitties. I think the following should be familiar to anyone who has ever been owned by a cat.
    She was a sweetheart. No doubt about it. Her blue eyes looked at you with love and gentleness. If you held her and stroked her gently, she would melt in your arms. Unlike others of her ilk her loyalty was unparalleled.

    Every once in a while, though, a certain look would come into her eyes. Pupils wide. Gone was the gentle spirit. Attempts to hold her were met with squirming. When possessed by kitty madness there was nothing to do but set her down and let her go. She ran off as if possessed screaming out her terror and madness.
