99 Word Flash: July 19, 2015

On July 19, 2015, Charli Mills (@Charli_Mills) prompted us thus:

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about  a breathless moment. Write about life.

Here is what I came up with:

Life Is A Beautiful Thing

Life: As a subject matter is a struggle to form into words without another context. How in the world does one capture such abstractness? My prism of life can be summed up with clichés.

The day greets me with the right side of the bed.

I operate each day by putting my heart to the grindstone, thinking inside and out of everybody’s box, and rolling with the punches while stuffing any takedowns.

At the end of the day, I wonder: Did I put my best idea forward and prepare for the early bird to feast on a new day?

    Clever way to combine cliches to describe life! Often, I find that life is indescribable, that cliches stand in for those breathless moments.
