Saturday Centus (I missed a week edition)

In the wild throes of bringing my NaNoWriMo project to the finish line (or at least the appointed mile marker, since the finish line of the story isn't even close yet), I filed last week's Centus prompt away in my head...and filed it so completely that I forgot about it. Oops. Time for redemption, plus a little guilt:

ME: Huh. It’s Saturday.

BRAIN: Ayup! Was it just last week that you forgot to do the Centus?

ME: Gotta bring that up?

BRAIN: You’re the lazy one, not me.

ME: But you ARE me!

BRAIN: Am not. I’m just along for the ride here.

ME: Oh whatever.

BRAIN: You know that look on your face right now? I finally understand the phrase ‘a deer in the headlights’!

ME: I see what you did there.

BRAIN: Really? I thought I was the brains of this outfit.

ME: We are SO screwed.

BRAIN: I wouldn’t say that we’re--Ooooh, look! Pie!

ME: Yum!!!

Yeah, I went all meta and stuff!
