Author’s Note : This is my first attempt at writing a 55 er-fiction piece. A 55 er -fiction is a short fictional piece made up of 55 words or less.

Trust me, it’s not as easy as it sounds.  I tend to write (and write and write…) most of time and expressing myself in so few words was like trying to stuff my entire wardrobe in a single suitcase. Thanks to a Twitter friend, I finally took the plunge 🙂

I have a Facebook fan page which is starting to show signs of dehydration in terms of fan count. So if any of my kind readers would do me the favour of going and liking my page, ‘ppreciate it a lot!
