SISTERS FOR WFW

Here is my "true" story on Thursday for Words For Wednesday

SISTERS by Granny Annie

A  continual mysterious audition caused Annie to attempt to defy her anticipated misfortune.  It was never a fantasy...simply reality.  This time she knew her efforts would require a commitment both definitive and daunting.  How would she ever discourage or defeat this virulent sister who made her feel so neurotic about this game?  Still, it ended, once again,  as Annie's sister, Elenore managed to be masterful in obtaining the desired Teddy Bear out of the restaurant claw machine.

  1. Perfection!! Love that it is a true story. Had some real meaning as the grands did some claw practice on our trip.

  8. Amazingly amusing for a short piece! n my sister will be around in May to tire me out. Of course she's retired, I'm not.

  9. Great short! You are a talented lady, even if you have little success with the claw.

  10. Unexpected ending there, well done. I have never yet managed to get anything out of those claw machines. I gave up long ago. My brother once tilted a machine so the toy he wanted fell closer to the middle, but he still couldn't get it.
