Kudos to @merej99 for drawing me into a "99 word challenge" ...
Of course, I had to make it extra challenging. Please have a read and see how.

Friday Night Fallout
by Duncan Cary Palmer
Staggering, Stanley stumbles, shuffles, straightens.
Shamefully, Stan stands still, silently swaying, severely sodden.
Strident, stormy, spouse Samantha signals scant sympathy. "Seriously, Stanley, speak! Spout some stupid, self-serving soliloquy!"
Stanley squirms, struggles, shudders... Stammering, Stan stutters:
"S..s..s..sorry, sweetie! So sorry! Simply no 's'cuse!"
Samantha sighs. "Stupid, sorry sot! Show at sunrise sans suspecting some sorta shit-storm?"
Sagging, Stanley shrivels; slouching, subdued.
Sheepishly, Stan shyly suggests "Suppose a sweet smooch should still spur some smiles?" Surreptitiously, Stanley spies Sam softening...
Strangely soothed, Samantha suddenly sags. Sighing softly, she surrenders.
"Silly simpleton! Shut up, Stan, squeeze me. Shall we snuggle?"
Based on real life, but some names may have been changed to protect the guilty... That's my story, and I'm sticking to it...
I count 99 words exactly... Can you count how many don't begin with the letter 'S'?😀

P.S. If you have an "in" with anybody at Steemit, Inc. - Would you please ask them to get rid of these damn, extremely annoying "off-website" arrow/boxes? The have, overnight, made Steemit ugly. There are much better solutions.
