I have not done a Prompt Tuesday as created by Sandiegomomma in a while...today's prompt:

Start a story with the sentence, “It was a dark and stormy night.“

Why? Because it is.

Try to write your entry in 10 minutes. This encourages top-of-mind, primal thinking before the ego and judgmental brain kick in. Just set a timer, make your kid count to 600 slowly, whatever. It’s an honor system. And I trust you.
Aim for 250 words or less.
Please have fun. Don’t put pressure on yourself. Together, let’s rediscover the simple joy in the writing process.
Post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

It was a dark and stormy night. The rain flooding the gutter, making it too wide to leap to dryer pavement. Wading through the only option.

All I can think of is the new pair of green suede shoes I want to wear.

I love that color green! Do not ruin those fab shoes with a puddle, I beg of you! :)

If I had those shoes that would be all I'd think of, too. But I'd risk tetanus to save those shoes. : )

Suede and rain -- definitely not a good combination.
