The Cook-Off

August 13, 2014

Prompt from Anita Stewart

You are facing a possibly fatal situation. Write a 100 word or less story (or poem) about what is happening and whether you live or die. Include the words: crimson, clover, jello.

= = = =

Cristina Ulridge, Crimson to her friends, was frustrated. Two-time winner of the Cloverleaf County Cook-Off, Crimson decided to listen to her grandson and “step outside the box” for this year’s entry. Crimson loved her grandson, but she wasn’t good at this “outside the box” business. She had a cake with runny frosting to prove it.

“I know it has to be the Jell-O,” she said to herself.

With only two days left she was scrambling. “I’ll die if Tina Besley wins this year”. And with that resolution, Crimson gave the runny-frosting-cake to her grandson and jumped back in the box.

    I do not like being in the box. My business underwriter used to tell me to get back in all the time, but he knew out of the box I could make him a profit.

    In the box? Nope, not for me. Too confining and who knows who might throw me out? 🙂
