Today’s prompt is an excellent bit of alliteration—What won’t wait. I don’t have much, just two ideas that popped in and so I wrote what I was thinking. I don’t feel quite satisfied. I may have another thought that will come up later. All the same, here are my efforts of two things that just won’t wait.
It Couldn’t Wait? Clouds, pendulous with imminent rain. Umbrella in my car, of course, the fat drops falling, beginning to pick up some real speed. Really, what else can I do but laugh and dance a little jig hopping puddles as I make my way through the impromptu shower to the car. ### This Really Won’t Wait I’ve been anxious, excited, for so long but now that the moment is finally here I really wish I could put this off just a bit longer. The contractions keep on coming harder faster stronger taking all my focus all my energy and any small distraction annoys me like no other. But now the doctor is urging me to push and so I do. As hard as I can and breathless and tired and still uncertain if I can really do this, my son is born.
