100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups 

Julia at http://juliasplace.org.uk/100wcgu/are-you-going-round-in-circles/ has given us an interesting prompt this week –  I spent the day going round in circles. Here’s my attempt. 
What was I doing when I heard?

Guess.

I spent the day going round in circles. Clockwise. Anti-clockwise. Slow, big circles, graceful and sweeping. Tight, tucked circles conserving angular momentum, speeding up and slowing down, arms in, arms outstretched.

Checked the phone. Nothing. “Come on, come on.” 

More circles. 

Cramp. Bruised, blackened toenails. Cuts and grazes from tumbles onto the ice.

Morning ticked into afternoon, slid into evening. More circles. 

My phone rang and I skated over to pull it from my bag, heart pounding.

“Yes?”

“Judy? You’ve made the Winter Olympics team. Pyeonchang 2018, here we come!”
