Around the Table

Set a scene using a kitchen or dining room table as the central focus. For today's prompt, write three short scenes around the same table. Have each scene take place 10-20 years apart. Show detail that reveals the decade. What color are the walls? Is there a floor covering? Is the table top Formica? Is there an ice box, an old Frigidaire? What hairstyles do your characters have? What toy is the child playing with at the table?

This will be as much fun as watching the manikin change clothes in the original Time Machine movie!
