WoW Weekly 100 Words 3/30/11

Good afternoon WoW Weekly 100 Words readers!

I've been to the dentist this morning and go back tomorrow for extraction and/or oral surgery. I'm not happy about missing a few days of work over this, but will be happy when the pain has pulled away.

I must tell you that I am thoroughly enjoying reading Sworn To Secrecy For Life: A Young American Spy's Odyssey through War-torn Germany and Russia, by author Charles Joseph Fickey. I like the author's writing style and the almost step-by-step way Fickey walks the reader through each experience of his novel, leaving me to feel as if I, myself, were the young American spy in training.

Today, I share with you from Chapter 14, titled, "Introduction to the president by Gruber":

     "Come on in and sit down with us, Captain Franklin," the president said, motioning toward a chair near the right corner of his desk. Cliff walked to the chair, gave a salute, and sat down. It was evident that the president was impressed with this.
     The president spoke, "Franklin, I like that name," and he gave a chuckle he usually did when he thought he had said something funny. Of course, Gruber and Cliff also chuckled. "Where are you from, Captain Franklin? You don't mind if I call you Cliff?"
     Cliff answered, "Morgantown, West Virginia, Sir."
     "Oh, that's coal country..."
