I decide to go with humour this week for Whisper for Five Sentence Fiction over at lilliemcferrin.com/five-sentence-fiction-whisper/ . I think my previous piece for a humorous Zombie Flash has started something. xx
The First day
It wasn’t what Rosie had expected on her first day as manager as she had been promised that her sudden rise wouldn't affect friendships; she had earned it after all with her ‘Superwoman’ tag and attitude to work and getting things done.
She’d even brought in cupcakes that she had made to celebrate with her staff and friends as well as extending their lunch break, seeing as they had gone to so much effort with Good Luck cards and wanting to toast the first day.
Since lunch, there were whisperings, sniggerings and dropped eyes every time Rosie walked by and now her nerves were so frayed with the thought that something bad was going to happen that she couldn’t leave her office, especially when her colleagues started to randomly do impressions of Superman.
Rosie watched her colleagues who continued to laugh even when she met prospective clients and too her amazement, even they began to laugh but not so discreetly.
“I’m sorry” began the older of the two clients, trying to stifle his laugh “but . . . . . er . . . . . your skirt is . . . . . er . . . . . . tucked in your . . . . . er . . . . . Superman knickers.”
And there it is. Hop over to lilliemcferrin for more 5SF stories. xx
Lol... Can you just imagine...xxReplyDelete
At least she had knickers - and not a thong...ReplyDelete
Very good!!! I even guessed the ending before the end came. About the whisperings. I thought oh it might have to do something with her skirt tucked in and her knicks showing. Very cute. Yep I liked this one. How very embarrassing though xxxxReplyDelete
I thought you might guess this one. xxDelete
Brilliant! I really enjoyed this. It happened to a friend of mine, she queued at the bank and only realised when she got back to the office that she'd her skirt tucked into her tights. Great take on the prompt.ReplyDelete
Thank you. Easily done I guess . . .xxDelete
Haha! I didn't expect that. Love it.ReplyDelete
Hee, hee, thank you. was in a cheeky mood. xxDelete
Well, that will be a day she won't soon forget! :)ReplyDelete
Poor thing. I'd hope she'd laugh about it one day. . . xxDelete
That must be so embarrassing !!!ReplyDelete
I know I'd find it mortifying! xxDelete
LOL! What a way to start out a first day of a new postion. I think I'd like a pair of Superman knickers, though. :-)ReplyDelete
They'd be so cool. xxDelete
I think I'd die, but then I'd never have got that promotion! I'm far from Superwoman lolReplyDelete
Join the club chicken. xxDelete
Love it! And I'd like some Superman knickers!! xReplyDelete
Me too! xxDelete
Well done! I enjoyed this very much!ReplyDelete
Thank you Ann. xxDelete
Really didn't see that ending coming. Very funny.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I like to try a little humour every now and then. xxDelete
Best story of the day! As it goes along we share Rosie's puzzlement about what everyone is whispering about, and only at the end reveal do we fully understand the response she's received. Shame on all those meanie coworkers for leaving her with her Super-undies exposed. Bet there is no more cupcakes or extended lunches for them! Great story!ReplyDelete
Thank you Josie; I fear you're right about no more cupcakes and extended lnuch . serve them right. xxDelete
LOL, thank you. Great job with the humor.ReplyDelete
