THERE’S MAGIC IN THE AIR!

I am linking to Saturday Centus at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent.  This week, Jenny has given us 100 words, based on a photo prompt.

MAGIC SHOES

Ben was told that commissions would compensate his salary in the shoe department.  All of his customers wanted the golden shoes, but the display was the only pair in the store.  Even when it was the customer’s size, it never fit.  Disappointed ladies left without buying.     

When he wearily slipped the shoe onto her foot, it was a perfect fit!  Other shoes began selling, and Ben became top salesman.

He was Store Manager when he saw the purchaser of the golden shoes walking down the wall!  When she began mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, he realized he was on the floor.  They walked into life’s sunset together.  laurie

It so hard for a blabbermouth woman with a lot of words to say anything with 100 words!  Please go visit other Saturday Centus participants at Jenny Matlock Off On My Tangent.  Thank you for visiting me.  laurie

Laurie, Laurie! I love this! You are so clever...what a fabulous twist on this ridiculous picture prompt. I have no idea what got into me there.

Sigh.
