SC108...Golden Anywheres

Time once again to meet the weekly challenge. The Rules:  Use the picture below (horizontally or vertically) as inspiration for your story.  Number of words: 100.  Style of writing: Any.

Scientifically created Golden Anywheres
Had this lady walking on air
Crossing the ceiling she frowned
She was up but her dress stayed down.

What can I do?  She looked around
She could clean the ceiling just like before
But now she could sweep the dust to the floor.
Sweeping to her heart's content
The floor was quickly covered with lint.

The ceiling was finished
Her shoes held her tight
Her legs were burning from the heel's height.

Turning to go from ceiling to wall
The shoes came off.
She died from the fall.

Love it, Gail!! That's taking housecleaning a little too far!

And yes, high heels really wrecked my feet! Rod was sad to see them go, but he really had no say in the matter!!

Thanks for reaffirming my contention that housework is deadly!

Great job!

Apparently, she just needed a little more practice and shoes that stayed on better. Too bad she died on her first attempt. People should always get a second chance. Maybe she'll do better in heaven with her wings on. xox
