Something is Shady here!

Sunday, February 2, 2014

My lady please sign
For the fragrant maid’s overtime
Oh the stink that will be made
If she is not paid!


The fragrant young lady
Knew something was shady
Ambiguous words to trick her
But they could not out slick her.


The tailor awaited
His fragrant breath bated
Would she pay what he asked
Before completion of task?

Grandma is up to her old tricks again, giving us a delightful challenge that is! She posts a photo and it is our pleasure to write a short short story using 140 characters/words or less. For even more fun, incorporate the challenge words, which this week is "fragrant".  Thanks Grandma for creating succinctly yours!

Love the first two! The third made me laugh and think of Shakespeare. I don't want to imagine the tailor's fragrant breath.

All winners today, Judy. It seemed so natural on the first micro for your use of the word.
