100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups Week# 61

I missed Julia’s challenge last week – she wanted humour and I couldn’t think of anything 🙂 but I was determined to join in this week. The prompt is ‘I woke with another headache’  and my story is based on a dream I had way back, when Shakespears Sister were in the charts, do you remember them?

Shakespears Sister 

‘Come on here’s your costume’, Marcella Detroit handed me a regulation black swimsuit and cap, just like when I was at school. I hesitated, but she shoved me into a cubicle to change. She indicated that I should follow her up a metal ladder, leading to a high diving board, where Siobhan Fahey, the other Shakespears Sister was waiting.

‘We’re not diving from there’ I said panicking. ‘Course we are, it’s perfectly safe’ Marcella replied. I knew it was suicidal, at the bottom there was only a foot of water. We looked like sleek black seals as we jumped.

I woke with another headache.

  1. Nice take on the prompt. I like the “regulation” black and the seals.
    Reading “Shakespears Sister* a few times may give me a headache though, no apostrophe – or is this a sister who shakes pears?

  2. You may not have thought of anything humorous for last week, but you made me laugh with the end of this story! Marcella should have listened to you. Then again, I suppose she’s right – dream dives are always perfectly safe 😉

I would love to hear from you . . .
