100WGGU/ I'm Late!

100 Word Challenge for Grown ups – Week#109

…tail chasing did not help….
As usual, keep it to 100 words plus the prompt, link back to here and make it suitable for a PG certificate.

 My contribution is called I'm Late!

Nine! I’ve overslept and now have one hour to get up, get dressed and get to my interview.  
  I leap out of bed in a panic, run to the bathroom. No time instead, put on my clothes en route.    Keys, purse, tail chasing did not help me find the phone. I’m out.
  I rip my stockings jumping on the bus.
 'I think a bird crapped on your head,’ the driver says mockingly.
 A rip, bird waste what else could go wrong, I what to cry. All is not lost I arrive just in time to find the doors lock.
 It’s Saturday.

  1. Love the panic in this and how it builds to that final... ahh phew! We've all had days like these (mostly not a Saturday in my case though :-( )!
