Standing Room Only

A World of Short Stories


I always dreamed of having sunkissed skin like actresses did in the movies.  Or living at a seaside cottage rent free for a year because an aunt I have never met wanted me to work on my art like I read about in books.  Sometimes life made it hard because the sunkissed look I dreamed of was hard to get when it was 100 degrees every day. 

I knew I had to get out and I knew what I had to do.  The first step in my plan to make sure my life and body were sunkissed was to pare down the amount of items I owned.  I was a collector of junk and I knew if I had less junk, it would be easier for me to go if I ever got the chance. 

The next thing to do would be to quit the dead-end job I had.  Or at least line myself up for a new job so I could quit my dead-end job as soon as I could.  I started saving all of my pennies and turned off every single light if I was not in the room.  I was serious about getting what I wanted and would do everything I could to get there.  The only thing I wasn’t expecting was to get caught so quickly.  Caught living in someone else’s house while they were at their vacation home in Italy.  Now I had to bail myself out of jail and hopefully get back on track.
