hundred word wednesday – “33”

In Hundred Word Wednesdays on June 29, 2011 at 5:35 pm

This is the 33rd Hundred Word Wednesday, and growing up as a tall kid playing basketball in New York in the early 90’s, that number means a lot to me. Enjoy.

Patrick Ewing winced as he stood up. His knees ached worse in the nighttime. He tried not to disturb the woman sleeping on the other side of the bed, and thought, “Christ, I can’t even remember her name…”

He walked slowly and painfully into the bathroom; the trips had become more frequent as he approached fifty, and had been less productive.

After he flushed, he washed his hands and splashed some cold water on his face.

On his way back to bed, he stopped. “Denise! That’s it. Could be worse,” he thought, shaking his head. “Could be a lot worse.”

  1. Once I replaced Patrick Ewing with Larry Bird I got on board.
