Songs Day 6: Amusing Myself

9 Sep

I made FIVE false starts trying to write a shorty in response to the song “Walk of Life” by Dire Straits, one I very much enjoyed way way back in the 1980’s when I was so young and the world was before me… heavy sigh. Sometimes I have to just throw my hands up and write myself a joke story to meet my daily shorty commitment. Next!

Working Title: Sheer Rear
1st Sentence: She called herself “Her Hiney-Heiness” and she loved to say that she’d built her empire on her “royal rump.”
Favorite Sentence: Greta spread her arms wide and stood to deliver her signature goodbye line, “A woman who loves her cheeks lives in peace,” then blew a kiss and slapped her own rear.
Word Length: 722
