Saturday Centus 10/02/2011

"The number you have reached is no longer in service." 
That is Jenny Matlock’s prompt for this week’s Saturday Centus.  Each week, she gives us Centusians a prompt from which to write a story or poem.  The catch is, we have to produce a piece that is no longer than 100 words, excluding the number of words in the prompt.  So, this week, we have 110 words.  To learn all the rules and read the other submissions, just click on the Saturday Centus Button on my Side Bar.  Thing is, I don’t know what to do with this prompt.  (Happens all the time, but I somehow muddle through).
And I Don’t Care
"The number you have reached is no longer in service."  
More likely, my brain is no longer in service.  That’s the second time today I’ve misdialed the same number.  
Yesterday, I found my Blackberry in the pantry and opened the fridge to retrieve my just cooked Lean Cuisine, which was, of course, in the microwave.
I couldn’t find my debit card, and finally found it in the back pocket of my jeans, which were in the laundry hamper.
I forgot to fetch the mail, got lost on the way to Kroger, and, oh, I forgot to take my medicine.
My brain is no longer in service.  (And I don’t care).
