55Flash Fiction Friday

Just a Normal Little Momster

Sitting down at her makeup table, she growled and began removing her "party face." Off came the green spots, one by one, followed by the thick black eyebrows. Pulling off the wig, her real hair sprung free.

Smiling at herself in the mirror, she thought, Halloween is over, it feels good to be normal again.

Hope you all had a bewitchingly good time treak or treating! I am happy to announce that Little Rita, who has been sick since last Friday with the flu, still managed to drag her little self out there and make some neighborhood t and t rounds.

Seeing her so determined reminded me of trick or treating in Alaska, in the rain, slush, snow, freezing temps.....nothing could keep us from getting out there and doing our jobs. We were kids, and this was Halloween gosh darn it, and we had work to do, weather be ding danged, flu be gosh darned!

Anyway...if you want to know more about 55Flash, check the pink and white button on the sidebar over there. I hope you will all get out there and visit all the 55s, and also check G~mans blog for some 55 participants as well!

heh heh heh like the teeth thing to finish off the 55.

I think we should have the kids donate 90% of their Halloween candy to the starving children of the world..ohhhhhh I'm so BAD!
(but I think there's a point in there somewhere)

You look adorable as a vampire! I loved the 55 and the idea of little S stomping through the snow to get candy.

I posted one this week.

That comment from chris is spam for an adult site.

Halloween has come and gone. I love this time of year. WI was "kind" of similar but to not the same extent as Alaska.

I miss those days...ahhhh the memories.

Have a great wknd ;o)

Toadee said...

I'm up too

MIke Kilgore said...

Maybe I'll have to try one myself, making the rounds, you guys are all getting better and better!

barman said...

I finally posted something. I thought I just had sinus problems. Now I am thinking maybe I have the flu. We will see how I do tomorrow. Now I am sounding like the dog eat my homework with excuses why I didn't do my 55. Arg!

Mimster or you, either way you look wonderful. Love those teeth.

Glad Little Rita was able to participate in the festivities. I remember not being able to go t and t when as a kid sometimes. I was devastated. That candy was important.

snowelf said...

Susie you absolutely have the best pictures!!
