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 would like to nominate Olga – she has beautiful photography over on her blog. Please check out her blog!
Life With Muzzy
After Muzzy’s Monday morning manic commute, he hope his Tuesday would be much better. Poor Muzzy – he was so wrong. You see, his boss told him to staple together 100 project manuals, and Muzzy being so small, he had to jump on the stapler to make it work!
Well wouldn’t you know it! He slipped, fell and wedged his foot in the confounded machine! Oh he was so upset and meowed loudly in pain. “Help!” he shouted, “I’ve got a staple in my foot!”
Well Frank came along and used a pair of scissors to unjam the stapler and proceeded to lose his grip and poor Muzzy! He ended up between the scissors sharp blades.
Thank goodness the only thing wounded – besides his foot – was his pride. His boss sent him home and told him Wednesday would be a better day.
But would it? Come back tomorrow to find out!
