Daily Prompt: Tenterhooks

In response to prompt : Tenterhooks

I was afraid to watch the live tennis match, I waited on tenterhooks for an hour to see the result on YouTube. The result was what I dreaded Roger’s opponent won, he lost to a guy whom he defeated six times in  previous tennis matches.

It therefore shows one shouldn’t be too confident, he relaxed for a moment and watched his match slipping away from him, and he could do nothing to stop his opponent!

DP Daily Prompt: Going Obsolete

Of all the technologies that have gone extinct in your lifetime, which one do you miss the most?


The one I miss the most is the VCR. I loved the idea of taping some of the programs we used to watch, and if we liked it we’d turn on the VCR and watch it again,it was fun.

My favorite was watching the grand slam french open tennis tournament, Monica Seles was my favorite, I was ecstatic when she beat Steffi Graf. I watched the championship several times. Now the VCR  doesn’t exist but matches are still played,things are different the players have changed and I watch sometimes but that enthusiasm has dwindled.
