Some like it hot....

This post is a themed writing project challenge taken from Jenny Matlock over at off on my tangent.

Jenny says we can use UP to 100 words to tell our story. It can be fact or fiction. Jenny posts a few words, a prompt that we work from. This weeks prompt is in bold itallics.

The gigantic fake breasts made it up the porch steps before the chest they sat on did.

A crimson painted rosebud shaped mouth didn’t do more than pout as its owner’s hand held out a pillow case balanced on huge, made by mother, cleavage.

The blonde wig hugged the head it was placed on like it was God issued, and thick liner developed, and defined, doe like eyes.

The black mole made it O-fficial.

"Trick or treat!" they shouted as the door opened..."

"'s Marilyn Monroe!!!" chuckled the man giving the candy.

8 year old Ronald Richard J wasn’t the least bit impressed he’d been recognized.

    I am soooo impressed with this little story...and I totally didn't see this particular twist coming.

    What wonderful writing you shared here.

    And I adored this story.


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
