50 Word Story – Stale Bread


The pain of his death was still prevalent. He’d left them destitute. Dinner was stale bread, and she’d lost her temper and spanked the children. Sighing, she tightened laces and swept the sole. It sure stunk living in a shoe, but she’d been saving money for a wool-lined boot.

*There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe is a popular English nursery rhyme.
*Inspired by a conversation with the adorably corny and talented BRH (Click here to visit his blog). ❤
