Writing Prompt #5: Would you like fries with that?

Written By: Jess - Apr• 23•14

fries(1)Today’s Prompt:

“Would you like fries with that?”

My 100 Words:

Eddie stared at the girl on the other side of the counter as her empty gaze scanned the menu.

“So, does the calorie count include the bun?” she asked, her voice accented with several ‘ums’ and ‘likes’.

Dear God above. What did I do to deserve this?

“Yes,” Eddie said.

His manager gave him a dirty look and he plastered on a smile for the blank face in front of him.

The girl frowned. “Do you have any other recommendations?”

Eddie ground his teeth. “A lobotomy?”

Another glare from the manager.

He smiled wider. “And would you like fries with that?”

    Awesome. 😀 I think Eddie gives sound advice. If she wants something low calorie, maybe she should give water a try. Or celery.
