Yes, I know it's Tuesday but the words are coming out of Australia this month and it's Wednesday 'down there'.
Words For Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing. This month River has the words for us at Drifting Through Life. You can find her in my side bar.
The words this week are:
shutdown, wreck, hair clip, marked, old school, brewery
release, hell no!, cherries, insignificant, coffee and almost.
Here we go.
Jenny punched in late, as usual, at Holman's Brewery for her 3pm shift.
"What's your excuse today, if I may ask?" Her supervisor Dawn had a nasty note to her voice.
Jenny sighed. "The usual, my hair was a wreck this morning. I eventually gave up on the company issued hair clip and went old school with a hair net."
"Well, this is the second time this week. No need to mention last week I'm sure. I'm going to have you marked down in the log book." Dawn strutted off with her nose in the air.
"Dang!" Jenny thought, "I almost made it in without being seen. Really, four minutes late is pretty insignificant if you ask me."
Lucy bustled up, breathless. "They've shut down our line. Sarah's hair came loose from the clip and got caught in the belt. They can't release it so they're talking about cutting her hair off where it's caught. You should hear her screaming "Hell-No!" but I don't think they have a choice. We're all going back to the hair nets."
"Well thank goodness for that." Jenny breathed. "We may as well grab a coffee and a cherry tart in the cafeteria while we wait."
