Flash Friday – 99 Words – Fun!

This was my first official “Flash Friday”.  It is from Rebekah Postupak.  Each Friday she posts a pic or some prompt and people put their stories in the comments section of her blog.  A winner is selected and that winner, I believe, is the judge for the next week’s contest.  The hard part?  Well, for me, it is that the prompt is posted at 12:01AM on Friday and the entries have to be done and in the comments by 11:59PM that same day!  I have always missed before.  For ease, here is the picture prompt followed by my story.  Go to http://flashfriday.wordpress.com/ to see it as it really was.  Enjoy!

The Season is the Reason

“She had those three?”

“That’s right. Had ‘em and raised ‘em all by herself.

“Really?”

“That’s right. That’s why the strange hat.”

“What about it?”

“It makes sure her head is covered.”

“Why does she need her head covered?”

“Shes’ mostly bald.”

“What happened?”

“Taking care of those kids. She simply pulled her hair out.”

“I can’t believe that! How could taking care of those three little bundles of joy make a person pull out their hair?”

“Oh, it wasn’t those three little darlings. They are the reason she’s smiling . It was the other six that did it!”
