Prompt – Clock

An infant is born and sleeps around the clock.
She grows, leaves school and punches a time clock.
Before she knows it, she is hearing her biological clock ticking away.
The cycle restarts.

~~~~~~~~~

Give us 33 words (exactly) that tell us three different uses for one object.  But don’t just tell us that a can opener can be used to 1) open cans, 2) open beer bottles and 3) break a window in case of a fire.  Tell us a story. It won’t be easy, but you guys are far beyond needing easy prompts.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  10. A clock! Pretty clever. Time clocks–just the idea of them makes me anxious. 🙂 Great job with the prompt. Thanks for linking up.
