I’ve been wanting, trying to find the mindset that would enable me to write another 100 Word Story (or Drabble or you name it). Finally, this past week, I was so motivated and I wrote “Tom & Viv & Me” and published it on Laurence Simon’s 100 Word Story Podcast.
UPDATE 2021: The link to the story no longer works, so I’m including it below:
Tom & Viv & Me
by Yordie Sands @2013
On a late August afternoon, while dancing around my bedroom, in my undies, I was suddenly swept into a time vortex.
Instantly, I was standing in a parlor filled with old people. A spectacled man mumbled: “I shall sit here, serving tea to friends…”
Ever so politely I said, “I’ll have sweetener in my tea, please.”
The guests turned and glared at me. A man asserted, “Young woman! T.S. Eliot is not serving tea!”
And the woman beside the great poet shouted, “Tom, who is this slut?!”
Untroubled, Tom made a cowardly amends for what Viv had said to me.
PS: I borrowed some of the words from the poem “Portrait of a Lady” by T.S. Eliot.
