The Slice of Life Story Challenge is hosted at Two Writing Teachers


Friday Morning

The news I had been waiting for was about to be released.  I keyed up the website.  Punched in the numbers.  Entered the secret code.  Whatever.

I was as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. As nervous as mouse in a room full of long tailed cats.  As nervous as a piece of cheese in a room full of mice.

I tried to plan for my day when two of my collegues came in.

“Anything yet?”

“They said by mid morning.”

“I’m sure you’ll be fine.”

“Yeah…” I clicked the button for the twentieth time that morning. The sound of my scream rattled the glass windows and wove itself into a tapestry that floated over the city. “I did it!  I achieved National Board certification!”
