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.




Economy sucks. Jobs are scarce. So why did I quit mine? Timing plays a key. If not now, then when? If not me, then… well, someone else will get all the money for my blood, sweat and tears. Unfortunately, now I have a real asshole for a boss and I have only myself to blame…
