Writing Prompts Are Great Fun

Last week we came up with a terrific list of things that depict a city. Then we changed a telling sentence(She lived in the city.) into a showing sentence by using some of the words on our list. We were good...really good!

In fact, we were so good that I thought I'd use one of our sentences as a writing prompt.
Terri showed a city with this sentence:

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth.

All we need to do now is use it as a prompt to see just how creative we can get. Here goes....

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth because _______.

Write as little or as much as you like! Have fun with this. Get as creative as you like!

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth because when the spaceship came in for a landing it had vaporized everything above the fourth floor.

Sorry, the Scifi channel is on in the other room!

Look up she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth because every since that terrible accident, she has had a fear of heights.

...rumor had it that when you get transferred up to the fifth floor, it means a pink slip is imminent.

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth, because someone could survive a fall from a second floor window but not likely the fifth.
She had seen people jump.

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth, because her purse and her arms were so full of adopted dogs from the adoption fair. She was worried she would need help controling them, if she had to go up to the fifth floor!

Looking up she was grateful she worked on the 2nd floor and not the fifth because that is where life was brought in to the world. She loved working on the infant floor of the hospital. She hated to go up to the fifth because that was the ICU floor. Too much sadness occured on that floor.

Oopse did I really write fifth..I meant to write fiftieth and this is why...In real life buildings can make me nauseous. As do elevators.
I couldn't imagine holding down a job in a sky scrapper. So here we go...

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fiftieth because it made her nauseous. The elevators, you know the slight dip she would feel when it comes to a stop at what ever floor. It didn't matter. As well as the slight swaying of the structure. "Stop the building I want to get off"

Thanks Jan, I'm glad you liked the sentence...Hope everyone else has fun with it.
I saw a spelling error I need to correct. so I canceled this comment and replaced it here.

Looking up, she was grateful she worked on the second floor and not the fifth because the thought of a blackout and the lack of elevator service scared her silly, not being able to manage stairs very well...
