I've really grown to love 100 words. I feel like I've found a place I finally belong. Everyone here seems a little depressed, has slightly lower-than-healthy self-esteem, and likes to pointlessly philosophise about life. Also, since it is in writing, it doesn't sound pretentious. As noone knows each other (or hardly anyone does) it's not show-offy either, which seems to be getting rarer in modern life. I think the two things I hate most in life are pretentiousness and show-offishness. Probably because they remind me of bits of myself I try to compress...

The tin body takes the hold of the ripples strains, directing it into course, narrowly getting caught by a dipped bush branch which it rebounded from to settle mid-drift to an unblemished still of slow mobility to react and rock rapidly over the rapids that sucked it through to the widened marina for tadpoles and guppies, spinning back end front, jostling into the underbrush of the hurrying curve, levee-bound. Pushed from the deluge, it continues down the narrows, disappearing.
