99 Word Flash: July 29, 2015

On July 29, 2015, Charli Mills (@Charli_Mills) prompted us thus:

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that is ripped from the headlines. Look at local, regional or global news. Put your own fictional twist on it to make it unique to your story-telling.

Here is what I came up with:

A Fan Every 190 Days

Statistical analysis of Ronda Rousey’s scraps are staggering, though I noticed a missing factoid in MMA Junkie’s post-fight data points: my wife’s love of MMA when Rousey fights.

“Rousey fights next,” I call.

Before I breathe the last consonant, I was jockeying for position in front of the T.V.

Rousey’s intense walkout parallel the actual fight for my wife.



Neighbors phone their concerns at our impassioned cheers after Rousey, again, displays dominance!



After Rousey’s adorned in her belt at UFC 190, it will be approximately another 190 days until I see this side of my spouse again.

    Folks beating up on each other – entertainment for some. Some say it’s all staged. Thought don’t tell the fighters that…

    Thanks for your kind words. Poor demoted Pluto. Big heart though 🙂

    My husband is intense to begin with, but put him in front of a screen showing the MN Vikings and he’s an inferno! I calmly nod or ask questions when puzzled. Wait for the funny beer commercials. But a rodeo? Oh, yeah, this laid-back buckaroo can go berserk! It’s not NFL or MMA to bring out the 190 Day Fan; it’s PRCA action, buckin’ bulls and steer wrestling! Great flash, Dave.
