This weeks 100 word challenge had the stimulus ‘…the queue was so long…’
The queue was so long I didn’t think I’d ever get to see him. What seemed like miles away, there he was at the front, signing copies of his latest books. They’d done that trick queue thing, when you thought you were getting nearer the front it doubled back on itself, so you kept passing the same people, also looking worried about not making it to the front before time ran out. We inched forwards, one at a time. It must have looked a bit like a caterpillar moving from above. And then, suddenly, that was it. ‘Sorry folks, it’s time to go.’ How disappointing.
