Microfiction Monday #61 ~Dress for Success




Dressing up to do the laundry may seem silly, but in these days of high unemployment, Edna knew she could be replaced by a hungry supermodel.





Posted for Microfiction Monday over at Stony River, with thanks to the G-Man and friends for introducing me to the game.

  2. Hungry super-models don't do laundry - or cook, or clean house, or drive the kids to school, or... just what in the heck makes them 'super' anyway?

  12. A girl has to look good just to keep her spirits up while laboring over a washboard never mind someone elbowing her out of a job! Good one!

  16. Thanks everyone--enjoyed the many different takes on a simple prompt with only 140 characters allowed, as always, some of which were hilarious and all of which were fun.
