The Closet

It’s time for Jenny Matlock’s Saturday Centus once again.  This week she has given us the prompt “the bin of tangled up holiday lights” to use exactly as written in a story of 100 words or less (not including the prompt).  Be sure to visit Jenny’s blog for more creative posts based on this prompt.


I stood in the doorway of the closet looking at the huge mess.  I couldn’t believe it was that time of the year again.  My plan had been to clean it out before now, but somehow organizing the closet was always getting pushed to the bottom of the to-do list.  Now, I needed all those decorations and they were somewhere in this mess.  After two hours of digging I finally found the bin of tangled up holiday lights, so I could start decorating the tree.  Who knows how long before I uncover my desired Santa hat!  I’ll get this done before next year!  I promise.
