Jolt…a 100 Word Song Entry

There's a weekly contest run by Lance aka TLanceB in which he gives a song and entrants must write in 100 words exactly about the song. This is my first ride on this merry-go-round. This week's song is Grey Street by DMB. If the link doesn't work, I'll correct it upon returning to my home laptop.

She was not the poster child for any pharmaceutical company. As she stared at the soft, grey walls, Daphne buzzed with both excitement and angst at the treatment the newest doctor was proposing. Color could come crashing into her world soon, with a jolt.
