Scott’s Daily Prompt 16/02/2022

Scott Andrew Bailey is the host of this writing challenge. You can find it here

Today’s prompt is. 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.”

I heard the door slam and immediately
looked at the clock
as it looked back at me
the time was a-ticking
it was getting late
I really was hoping
I’d be on a date
with the most handsome man
that I ever did see
but by the look on the clock
it was all fantasy.
