Honorable Mention at The Motherhood Muse

I entered a 100 words or less contest at the "Motherhood Muse" and received an Honorable Mention.  I thought I would share my entry with you.

By Kathleen Gilbert

Reginald Davis was a prick. That’s what his widow Marge told everyone at the senior center as they prepared  for the Christmas bazaar. She’d saved drawers full of his things, items she wouldn’t dispose of, not because she was sentimental, but because she didn't believe in throwing away good stuff.

Fussing with each item, she positioned Reginald's personal effects neatly on the table. "Presentation is everything,” his voice resounded in her head.

Marge began walking away, hesitating; she turned, and disheveled the flawless table.

Feeling younger than she had in years, she scurried down the hall to play BINGO.
