Well Timed

This week's Flash Fiction Friday challenge was to write a story about a milestone in a character's life, including five specific words. The following was posted last Friday - 

In less than 24 hours, the month of December will be upon us.  This particular month is known for quite a number of occurrences way beyond those of Christmas and the purported upcoming one set for the 21st.  They include:
  • 12/05/1933:  National Prohibition ended.
  • 12/12/1925:  The first motel opened in the United States (The Motel Inn in San Luis Obispo, California).
  • 12/17/1791:  The first one-way street was created in New York City.
  • 12/21/1440:  Bluebeard was executed.  Our impending Armageddon is the 572nd anniversary of this particular event.  Coincidence?
  • 12/27/1947:  ’Howdy Doody’with host Bob Smith, made its TV debut on NBC.

A lot of life-altering events have occurred throughout the centuries during the month of December.  Let us in on what high drama enters the life of one of your characters.
