Trying to tell a story, or create the impression of a character, in exactly 100 words reminded me of waking from a dream too fast. Whether the dream was good or bad doesn't matter. You shut your eyes again to see if you can summon the image and get back into the dream to resolve something. You never can, because it's gone, turned to vapor, and you're left lying there wondering what the hell happened.
I'm thrilled to have my story appear on the micro fiction site, 100wordstory.org. Apologies to Scott Baio look-alikes everywhere, and the creatives who worked on the Bain de Soleil account back in the day.
