Friday 55

FINALLY! Life is returning to as normal as it gets for me. :) Meaning it's time to play "Write a story in 55 words ". When you do, be sure to let the G-Man know, then kindly visit as many 55ers as you can.


Selling trinkets to tourists hadn't been her idea of fun.
But his English was better than her Japanese,
turning the sale into a game of
charades.
Using hand gestures, they figured out how to make the transaction.

55 words wasn't necessary for their conversation.
A simple smile, it seems, is the international symbol for gratitude.


For the rest of the story, which is true this week, visit here

It's almost enough to make one glad to be out there trying to sell something.

Monkey Man; I missed you guys. Tomorrow I read.

Alice Audrey: it really was a pleasure to deal with the man.

Mama Zen: thanks! After today's awful kids, I'd rather spend the time back with the delegation from Japan!
