Her challenge to participants is to use the prompt and up to 100 more words to produce a piece of writing in any style. This week’s prompt is inspired by her husband. Click here to read more and perhaps be inspired to join in! The prompt is in red italics.

Driving home after a business cocktail party, when partners were politely acknowledged while anxious eyes sought associates and contacts over her shoulder, she wondered again why she attended these functions. She had remained resolutely sober when one small drink might have made the evening less boring, but she did it for her husband – he worked hard and needed to network, much as he hated it.
Thinking thus, with her man snoring lightly in the passenger seat, she noticed, too late, Exit 181, 1/2 mile ahead. . .
Damn, there were another fifty miles before she could turn off and retrace the miles to the correct turn off.
