I’m Exhausted

Our ‘100 Word Challenge’ here, where you will find links to all the other responses, is simply to write 100 words, plus the seven words in the prompt, as one piece. I have put the ‘prompt’ words at the end. 

Come in! Oh, it’s you. No, not OK, really. Oh, all kinds of reasons. Just been having a ‘stop the world – I want to get off’ kind of week. What’s that? Got a lot done? I wish! That’s the frustrating part. I can’t think what I have done, as far as achievement goes. Remember the Red Queen? “It takes all the running you can do round here, just to stay in the same place.” She had her head screwed on right I reckon. Problems? Just anything with four wheels and an engine… What? Already? Cup of tea, no? ‘Bye, then… I’m exhausted. Shut the door behind you…

    I think you’ve either been inside my head, or been spying on my life this week. This is *exactly* how I feel! Great observations!

  2. Credible voice giving a believable piece that will ring true with many. *Life*happens at full pelt !

  3. Love it. Shame they didn’t stop for a cuppa though.

    such pace in this Phil! I think we all have had times like these and conversations about them. I’d love to know more about the Red Queen though – engine of some sort?

    Loved the Red Queen quote!

    Yep, the prompt fits credibly, which is what counts. I think that its a sign that more than a little thought has gone into a piece if you cannot distinguish the prompt, it fits that well. You’ve done just that here, Phil!
