It’s Wednesday! Yep… that means I had to come up with a 100-word story based on my very own picture this week. Why is it hardest to write to my own? Thanks to Rochelle for asking me to put my © on a picture shared on FB 😉 And, of course, for getting us together to play week after week.
Oh, and click the skates if you are inspired to add your own 100-word to go with this picture.

“Hah! I guess it’s not easy.”
“No, it’s not. And just think, the figure skaters trust the hockey players to pick them up and not drop them!”
“You said it.”

And, no skater achieved what Valeri Bure did in Season 2… If you want to skip ahead to their skate, go to 1:55. They won that year and you can see why.
