Auntie Goose is going to take the next 5 days off because I was nominated by Jennifer over at Jennifer Nichole Wells (PLEASE click on the image to go to her site – you won’t regret it!) to participate in the ‘5 photos, 5 stories.’ The challenge rules: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days, and tell a story about each photo. The story can be truth or fiction, poetry or prose.” Jennifer works with miniatures and creates fascinating worlds that tell stories. So with her art as my inspiration I have this little mohair cat named Muzzy that I decided to put into different situations to see what super-short stories might surface. Muzzy is about 3 1/4 inches tall and is mildly flexible. Another rule is to nominate another blogger to participate and I would like to nominate SunsetDragon. She is very busy taking are of her family (aka The Bald Dude) and a beautiful cat named Ali but her photos are lovely and she is very creative with her blog. I hope she is able to join in the fun – but no pressure!!!
Muzzy woke up one bright Monday morning and headed off to work. He was using his boss’s special carpooling car and was supposed to pick up his co-worker, Frank along the way. But the day was so beautiful he forgot all about it and drove in alone.
The traffic was terrible that morning and poor Muzzy sat in his car all by himself for hours trying to get to work. He started wishing he had picked up Frank so he would have someone to talk to. After a few hours of idling, waiting for the traffic to clear, his car started knocking and sputtering and suddenly died. With a start he remembered he forgot to get gas! How could he be so silly to forget the gas? Of course!
The gas station was on the way to Frank’s house. Poor Muzzy – forgetful Muzzy – selfish Muzzy – having to push his car to work. He won’t forget to carpool tomorrow!!
Come back tomorrow for Muzzy’s next adventure!!
