Fifty Word Wednesday: Costume Me

Tip me over, Pour me Out

I started a personal challenge to write a story that is exactly 50 words! Thank you, Boy with a Hat. Not that he set up a formal challenge, but it was his idea. And his writing is worth checking out. So please click the link and find out what he’s up to. If you want to begin at my beginning, click here or search in the side panel with the words, “fifty word.”

Today, I’m thinking about Halloween. I must admit that focussing on Halloween did lead me to borrow a real-life memory of Miss G, dressing up as her brother, Mr. L. OMGoodness! She could even mimic his mannerisms.

Note: My featured photo has nothing to do with my 50-word story. We’ve just gotten so much fun from the Mrs. Pots costume CoCo talked me into buying 18 years ago. I think I have a photo with every family member in it.

I thank my good friend, Diane, for suggesting I set up a formal Challenge. Almost everything she writes makes me smile. (Except when she makes me cry.) Check out her blog at “On the Border.”

“Where’s your costumes?” Granny involuntarily breathed disappointment.  She knew the kids were getting big.  But still..

“I did.” A soprano voice came from who granny thought was her grandson.

“Oh my gosh! Marjorie?”

“I’m going as Marvin.”

Smirking nearby, Majorie’s brother Marvin wore a nametag, Hello, my name is Bob.

Wednesdays are super-fun and challenging because paring down to exactly 50 words is really hard.

I never know what’s going to flow directly from my brain to my fingertips and onto the virtual page. Every week it’s a bit of a surprise.

I love finding out what you think.
