Red Socks, Reindeer and Microfiction Monday
|Clip art courtesy of Webweaver|
Merry Christmas! I’m in a jolly mood because I finished my Christmas shopping yesterday, which means I can sit back and enjoy the rest of December stress free. I’m usually that frantic woman you see rushing through the mall with a glazed look in her eyes and hair standing on end. Not this year, buttercup. Yay!
(An aside: The festive reindeer above resembles a cartoon rendition of my yellow Lab were I to embarrass him by tying back his floppy ears and attaching antlers.)
Now to the main reason for my Monday post: the just-too-much-fun Microfiction Monday, hosted by Susan at Stony River. It is ridiculous how much I look forward to this every week. Susan has single-handedly turned Monday into one of my favorite days of the week. Thanks, Susan! And thanks to all the other participants who make this weekly meme such a joy. Below are my two stories to accompany the picture, each 140 characters or less.
