hundred word wednesdays – “50”

This is my fiftieth HWW story, so I guess this blog is pretty much middle-aged now.

The last candle was blown out, and the party was over. He settled back into his big comfy chair, trying to stay awake and keep the world from spinning. He was in a great mood, and wanted the night to last a little bit longer.

“Fifty and single.”

Before this thought had the chance to fully penetrate his mind, he shot up and staggered toward the bathroom.

After vomiting and lazily wiping his chin, he laid back on the linoleum floor. “First time since my twenties,” he thought with a smile, and drifted off to sleep.
