I can say this because I kind of, sort of, maybe, in a way, run things here; this past week of 100 Word Song was the most creative one ever. All of you dug deep inside your dark, hard crusted souls and delivered some brilliant writing. The best part of the week were the new regulars, like According To Mags, Badrinath, and today’s hightlighted 100 Word Singer, Michele from Old Dog New Tits. Yes, she has tits in her name and that means I can’t read her stuff from work, despite the fact that the Tits refer to a dog and thus makes her blog educational. At least that’s her story. Here’s her piece from last week http://olddognewtits.com/2012/04/20/accidentally-nostalgic-for-100-word-song/ . Michele and I talk on the twitter about music so I figured she could deliver something versatile and fun to write about. She did. This week’s choice is Waiting On A Friend from The Rolling Stones. Leeroy the robot is expecting greatness from each of you.
Here’s my 100.

He traded texts with Mallory during his business meeting. Paranoia became his companion as he swiveled his head to see who was watching him during a three-block walk.
As he opened the door to Smyth’s Olde Pub, the smells recalled when he’d played guitar there in a southern rock band called Boxer Ego, before he met his late wife. He figured it’d be a place he wouldn’t feel her presence.
A tall, thin, well-tattooed young man greeted him.
“Hey there. So are you by yourself?”
He looked away and stuttered his reply.
“I’m uh, just, um, waiting on a friend.”
