My entry – 100 words –
“Soup du jour”
George plopped down at the table and started spooning soup into his mouth, slopping a bit out of the bowl, careless of the drips that fell on the tablecloth.
Maude watched him in resignation. Marry in haste, repent at leisure. She had been repenting for years now. Too many years.
“Soup’s good.” George grunted between spoonfuls. “What’s in it?”
“Hand-picked mushrooms fresh from the forest.”
George glanced at her and frowned. “You were careful?”
“Of course, I took the book. I know exactly what kind of mushrooms are in your soup.”
George grunted and finished his bowl.
