100 Words - I woke with another Headache

The prompt, once again from LimeBirds via Julia's Place is: "I woke with another headache".  Thankfully, there are no further restrictions this week.

My mind was devoid of ideas. But, like a sourdough culture that's been completely used up, I managed to scrape some bits off the inside, add some fluid and get it going again.  Let me know if it worked.

100 Words - 'I woke with another headache'

I woke with a another headache.

“I’m never drinking again.”
My stomach felt taught and my kidneys were in pain.

My throat was rough – that’d be the singing.
It must’ve been a loud one – my ears were still ringing.

I started to get up, but something wasn’t right…
My hand went to my mouth, then I remembered the fight.

There was blood on the sheets and I was missing a shoe
and there was something in my hair that I hoped wasn’t glue.

“This is madness for my own sake,
I need to give myself a break!”

The next morning…

I woke with another headache. 


  1. Sounds like a fun night! Haha! Good job :)

  2. Thanks, Limebirds! Had to really use my imagination on that one. As a shy girl from the country (with a mum with a basement), I didn't have much personal experience to draw on ;)
