Saturday Centus ~ The Superbowl

Once again I am joining Jenny's Saturday Centus meme!  This weeks prompt was written by Nonna, and is "two peas in a pod".  You know the drill by now, i have 100 words plus the prompt words to come up with a nifty little tale ...  I hope you enjoy my offering

“Ma’am, can you tell us anything, that will help us figure out what happened at that house and how you know the two deceased?”

“Detective, they are  … were my older sisters, identical twins  and for all of my life they have been as close as two peas in a pod.  They lived together, ate the same foods, wore the same clothes, voted the same ... well except for one thing,” she sobbed.

“What’s that?” asked the detective.

“Football, one liked the Giants and the other liked the Patriots.”

“Death by Superbowl?” the detective queried. 

“Yes”, she cried as she burst into tears.

And now, I am off to a SuperBowl party ... Go ______ Go!!!!

Hahahaha! I love this!!! I am going to a Super Blow (yes, you read that right!) party at the home of my Best Friend Artist. We plan to Blow our allotted number of calories on junk food!! said...

It takes a brave, creative woman to combine this week's Centus with the Superbowl. You made me laugh while you were at it too.
Great play, Jo!

Such fun! Starts out seeming serious - nice dialogue by the way - and ends up with a fun laugh.
