Daily Prompt: The Clock
Write about anything you’d like. Somewhere in your post, include the sentence, “I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock.”
As I sat there working late, yet again for what seemed the umpteenth time on the computer. My mind going a million directions, but the one, I desperately needed to go, distractions, such as the hockey game on the television not helping. Knowing I need to finish this project, as it was already late, and the boss was looking a lot like a level seven nuclear event, when I slunk out of the office. However try as I might, I couldn’t concentrate on the task at hand. Then I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock. Perhaps now that the pizza that I ordered almost two hours ago is here, I can finally get on track.
