100-Word Challenge: Minimum Daily Requirement

She was never a bundle of sunshine and joy in the morning, but then who was? Not I, that’s for sure. But despite a spell of the morning grumblies, she normally cheered up as she woke up, becoming more delightful as the day progressed.

So it was a bit alarming to find her so dark and stormy at 3PM on a sunny, cloudless day. It was totally out of character.

I was concerned, and gently asked, “What’s wrong? Don’t you feel well?”

"Fine!, I’m just fine!” she snapped. “But just wait until I find out who took my chocolate!”

This is my entry for this week's prompt, Minimum, at Velvet Verbosity's 100-Word Challenge.  Thanks again to our good friend Lou for hosting the challenge here.
