Auntie Goose is going to take the next 3 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 invite everyone to participate!
Life With Muzzy
On Wednesday Muzzy’s boss told him to put tape on a bunch of work posters and hang them around the office. Muzzy thought to himself, “What is tape?” for he had never heard of tape. He knew about glue and staples (yikes, his foot still hurt!) and even thumb tacks but never tape! His boss brought ’round this plastic contraption with super thin sticky paper on it. He looked at it very closely. This is tape?
Then he thought “How do I work it? How does one get the sticky paper off the plastic contraption?” He even tried crawling inside to see if he could figure out how it worked.
Nope that wasn’t it! He climbed on top to see if a different perspective would help. It didn’t. Later that day Muzzy was still trying to figure the whole tape thing out when his friend, Frank, came along and said, “Poor Muzzy!, Silly Muzzy, let me show you what to do!” So with Frank’s help, Muzzy got his work done before his boss came back. Muzzy was looking forward to Thursday because he was taking a day off. Come back tomorrow to see how Muzzy spends his down time!
