Anita decided to forgo any mention of her birthday this year. 

At her age, the passing of yet another year had become more a pause for reflection than a cause for celebration- and truth be told- she needed little prodding in the direction of  reflection.

Just when her career began revolving around her ‘back in the day’ successes and her nights became a time for communing with the smooth, lustful bodies of men she had known in her youth, she was unsure. 

But she was willing to bet, it was right about the time she decided to give up chocolate…..

This piece, written in exactly 100 words, is my response to Susan’s call for posts conjured by the word, celebration, this week on Genre Scribes.
