First of the Month Fiction - Jan

Last post until Feb 1 (well, there'll be another First of the Month fiction, cos I like to keep you on your toes with random posting...)

Newbies, put a 100 word story (exactly) or one less than 30 words in the comments, then add your blog in the link, so we can check out your verbose awesomeness).

She was sick of her husband always working. Fed up with the lonely nights. It was worse at Christmas, magnified by the fact he'd sleep most of Christmas Day, when he was done for the year and finally spending time with his family. There was nothing special for her in the festive season.

The handsome young intern caught her eye and smiled. That magical grin of his. He wasn't perfect, a little short, but had a certain impish charm. One day she might succumb. "You're hair looks nice today, Mrs Claus." She flushed with pleasure, then busied herself with lists.

Happy Christmas to you all, and if you need help with New Years Resolutions, look at this article for some ideas (it's the one I posted before with all the F words, not suitable for work but absolutely suitable for easy changes to habits that could save the planet)

    1. Another year, another beer right boys?” said a cheery Dave Collins as he passed the schooners around on his shout. “Hope the bloody Windies show a bit more fight tomorrow than they did in Melbourne last week!”.
      Everyone loved Dave, the concreter from Marrickville. Always the larrikin and always in the pub in his dusty hi-vis, but not today. On holidays for a few more weeks.
      “Shit, you’d look better with a shave Dave but that red’s a good colour for you” said Barry the publican. “Got it in the sales, do you think the hem’s too short?” asked Dave

    1. Everyone has a story to write - nexttime you're waiting for someone, instead of playing on your phone, write it on a napkin....
