100 Words: First Things First

I was about to sit down and write an award-winning essay about equality as demonstrated in "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. My outline is outlined. My works are cited. My notes have been noted, and my mind was focused.

Then I got a whiff of the ole body odor pouring off me and a glimpse of the "jus' rolled outta bed" hairdo I'm rockin' this morning. (What if Publisher's Clearinghouse stops by to give me my ten million dollars? You know they always film that shit.)

Sorry, Mr. Vonnegut. I simply must get in the shower. Priorities, you know.

  3. Priorities - that's the way - any publisher worth his salt would wait the 3 hours it takes a for a girl to get showered and ready :)

    1. are we including deciding what to wear in that three hours? because that might be pushing it.

  4. I'm guessing Vonnegut might've put off a page or two for hygiene.

    1. he might've. He did dress like Dapper Dan most of the time. At least as far as I have seen.

  7. I know that if PCH stops at my door it's going to be when I've decided to have a "go to hell" day. Vonnegut, I've read him (two points!)
