The sign read —- Help Wanted: Waitress for coffee shop.
Samantha surveyed the area. She needed a job. She entered the small shop.
“Just a minute dearie, I will be right with you,” a sweet old voice came from the back of the shop.
Samantha headed that way.
“How can I help you?”
“I am interested in the job.”
“I’m closing up now, give me a hand while we talk.” She handed Samantha a broom.
The broom vibrated in her hands. Samantha fainted.
“You will do just fine at this job, dearie,” Hilda cackled wildly.
Please copy your URL to the Linkz collection. You’ll find the tab following the photo prompt. It’s the little white box to the left with the blue froggy guy. Click on it and follow directions. This is the best way to get the most reads and comments.
Please make sure your link works. If you find that you’ve made an error you can delete by clicking the little red ‘x’ that should appear under your icon. Then re-enter your URL. (If there’s no red x email me at Runtshell@aol.com. I can delete the wrong link for you).
If your blog requires multiple steps for visitors to leave comments, see if you can simplify it. Please, for the sake or our writerly nerves, disable CAPTCHA –that wavy line of unreadable letters and numbers. This mainly applies to Blogspot. It’s frustrating to have to leave a DNA sample, your blood type and your shoe size just to make a comment. (So I exaggerate. But hopefully you get the picture).
Try to keep stories to 100 words. (No one walks the plank for going over or under).
Make note in your blog if you’d prefer not to have constructive criticism.
Be kind in your comments to others. Please, exercise discretion.
My story will follow the photo prompt for those who would rather write before reading other stories. I appreciate your comments and critiques.
*NOTE-If your link is to an advertisement or any type of platform (be it religious or political) it will be deleted.
This week’s photo is from my longtime friend Jean Hays, a gifted artist. The stained glass is an example of her work.
