55 Word Challenge: Week Sixty-One

Welcome back to #55WordChallenge! We have a lot of fun last week. Let's see what kind of mayhem we can write up this week. Wendy Howard from Visionary Press Cooperative is judging.
For those that are uninitiated, the 55 Word Challenge is a contest to write a story in 55 words or less. Not an easy task, but fun and I have been blown away by some of the entries. See for yourself, past contests can be found here. (I am a bit behind in getting this updated.) The challenge begins at noon Eastern time every Wednesday and ends at noon Thursday. The story is based on one of three photo prompts. My only request is no porn. I don't want to hear graphic details. If it is erotic, make it titillating, not obscene. I know that can be done and done well.
The story is to be posted in the comment section below, along with your twitter handle or email address, so I can contact you if you are the winner.

And what does the winner get? Besides bragging rights? This badge.  What? You want more? Well how about a copy of Timothy Hobb's The Smell of Ginger for the winner and a copy of one of Nicole Hadaway's Dandridge shorts to the Honorable Mentions?

If anyone is interested in contributing a prize, a book, cover art, whatever you want, let me know and we will work something out. If you are an artist that would like to have your work featured, let me know!
