Very Short Mondays: The Girl In The Tin Foil Wrapper

The Girl In The Tin Foil Wrapper felt cold.  She pulled in the tin foil wrapper to close any gaps.

"Why don't you just put a jumper on?" said The Man With Three Scarves.

"No," said The Girl In The Tin Foil Wrapper.  "If it's good enough for marathon runners then it's good enough for me."

"But you're not a marathon runner."

The Girl In The Tin Foil Wrapper said nothing.  It was true.  She wasn't a marathon runner.  But she had been, once.  At the finish line a man gave her the tin foil wrapper she was wearing now.

It felt good.

Though today it was a bit torn in places.

Maybe she should run another marathon.  She made a mental note to google it later.  See what came up.

New Greetings Card, T-Shirt, etc: "Hosiery"



A new silly doodle.  When I thought of this idea initially, the brilliant Marc Johns came to mind, so its style is a little influenced by his.

You can buy 'Hosiery' greetings cards, prints, mugs, t-shirts etc on both my Redbubble and Spreadshirt shops.

Very Short Mondays: The Man With Leaves On His Face

George shaved once, every year, towards the end of autumn, to remove the twiggy remains of his most unusual beard.

He didn't use any of the usual brands of razor, and instead carefully and expertly pruned his face with a pair of garden shears that had caused not a small number of nasty accidents in his younger days.

George had honed his technique since then, however, and now didn't even require the use of a mirror.

It was only now, as the Christmas season approached, that he would visit his family and friends, and allow photographs of himself to be taken.

He felt new.  Refreshed.  Ready to face the world.

Until the Spring.

Very Short Mondays: The Day The Newspaper Rang

The train carriage was busy.  Not full - all of the seats were taken, but only two or three people were standing.

No one was surprised when the ringing started.  A couple of people checked their phones to see if it was them.  But it wasn't, of course.

There was one man, looking awkward in a suit and a hat, and reading a newspaper.  He knew the ringing was his.  Cautiously, he held the newspaper to his ear.

"Please listen carefully to the recorded message.  You are next.  You are next."
