The Cleanup Act

The Cleanup Act

It was being mocked upon and christened a ‘rat hole’ but the inhabitant was so accustomed to the surroundings that it just did not matter.

A vacation at home changed the perspective.
Upon return, the ‘rat hole’ became an eyesore. A rigorous cleanup mission was launched which had ‘once prized possessions’ being shown the door.

The above is exactly 55 words. Didn’t take much of an effort to fit the narration in 55 words. Wondering if I’m being ruled by 55? Even if I were, I couldn’t care much. I like 55s and hope that you too like ’em. On second thoughts, I am getting to believe that this post could herald what in sometime would be known as ‘Pictorial 55 Fiction’. Boy … am I imaginative ?

  4. you seem to be thinking only on lines of 55.. check out one thing, the official mails that you’d be writing, are they too 55 words? 😛

    and I have to agree with pkj, it seems to be 1055 words .. anyway we can always redefine a picture to be worth zero words 😉

    • Guess official mails are longer than these 55s for obvious reasons 😛

      pkj got me thinking too 🙂
