Friday 55

It's time to play "Write a story in 55 words".  And if you do, be sure to let the G-Man know. 

 
 
 
“Explain again why you’re researching dead people?” Alex inquired. 

“They’re not random people.  They’re relatives I never met,” Jesse sighed.

“You’re fascinated by strangers.  Dead strangers.”

“Family trees help piece together their stories. 
It‘s fascinating,” Jesse concluded as Alex shook his head.  
 
“Let me simplify,” Jesse added.  
“Dead relatives never bother you about money.”

“Gotcha.”

Perfect. Yet, you never know what they might have left behind.

One man's meat is another man's pudding, or something like that.

Halloween's coming soon - I may just have to look up some of my dead relatives.

Funny 55!
