OMGoodness! A challenge to write a story that is exactly 50 word! Cray-cray! I gotta do it. Thank you, Boy with a Hat.

Everyone ignored the pear-shaped man. If only he’d been built upside-down; wide top, narrow hips. As it was, his shape perfected him for his favorite activity. Reading.

Nimble, fingerprintless phalanges developed after years of reading newspapers, novels, and medical journals.

A cornucópia of cloaked knowledge, he concocted the perfect crime.

That was super-fun. Maybe Wednesdays will be my Fifty day. Whatdaya think?
