That’s me, dancing around my bedroom, in my undies…

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.

[the end]

PS: I borrowed some of the words from the poem “Portrait of a Lady” by T.S. Eliot.
