OLWG #166- A Bowlful of Oranges

This week’s prompts are at the bottom. The words below are written for practice. Practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.



I came into the room and told her my name

she smiled and asked me to wait

“only be a moment,” she said through bold red lips

she gestured to a seat by the window

where I sat

I sat by the window

she sat by the table

a bowl of oranges sat on the table

looking only at me she removed a large fruit from the bowl and…

used her thumbnail to score a circle

in the skin of said orange then denuded

the entire fruit

she pressed her thumb into the hole

splitting the orange into two over and over again

until finally it was separated into individual sections

which she peeled using a long thin blade

then ate them, one at a time, without speaking
