Friday 55

Welcome to Friday 55. The object of the exercise is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you participate, be sure to drop a comment at G-Man’s blog so others will know how to find your story.




The pink blanket slips from her fingers, floats to the floor. She stares at it, unbelieving. The painted faces of clowns on the wall smile at her, taunting her.

Seems like I've been there, done that. Well sort of! And, you are so correct, who needs it!!

Hope all is going well with you and your family. We're back in OK again. You just can't take the Oklahoma out of the girl.
