Title: Brought to You by the Letter “S”
Sheila, a Seahawks fan from Seattle, stopped shopping and was now sidelined, sitting on the stairs, and sad in a stagnant slumber. She squared off her social space to stop shallow breathing. Shhhhh, she said, until her seventh exhale, when silence settled in. Spotting a spider on the sidewalk distracted her sorrow until she realized she was wearing socks with sandals. Seriously silly, but she had a more sonorous situation; shoes seemed insignificant and small. Spinney retired from Sesame Street and Seattle Seahawks owner passed away– all in the same week.
Grief would have to run its course.
Today’s Friday Fictioneers was brought to you by the letter “S” in honor of Carol Spinney’s retirement after his 50-year puppeteer job as Big Bird (and Oscar) on Sesame Street (here).
The letter S was also featured in memory of Seattle Seahawks owner, Paul Allen, who sadly passed away this week (here).
Can you guess how many s’s there were in my fiction? (answer is at the end of this post)
Now I am just having fun here – so please do not be all serious if you think this was shallow or too simple for a Friday Fictioneers entry. It was satisfying to sort and sift out some “S” words. And author process matters… but I do hope you enjoyed the shout out, which featured letter “S.”
Oh and here are the “s” words that did NOT make the cut:
Answer: There were 64 s’s in my 100 word fiction.
