50 Words Thursday # 70

Deb Whitman is the host of 50 Words Thursday this week

The Rules:

  • Find the muse within the photo or line provided and follow where it leads. It can be a story, anecdote, poem. Anything!
  • The Story must be between 50 and 250 words, in 50 word increments. (so 50, 100, 150, 200 or 250 words)
  • Link back to this post with the tag 50WordThurs so that everyone can find it, or post your response in the comments below.

I’m looking forward to what these prompts inspire, so here’s the picture:


And the words:

“As long as he was acting, he felt comfortable with the world.” – M.C. Beaton’s Colonel Sandhurst to the Rescue


The scarecrow was adjusting to his new life albeit slowly. It was a new role for him. But he was pretending that he was in a play and as long as he was acting, he felt comfortable with the world. Who knew this was going to be his last assignment. Hay stuffed into old farmer Jack’s spare shirt and the other jeans, with an old hat made him what he was now. He wasn’t exactly happy with his face. Especially the nose. Who has thought of making his nose with the empty tube of toilet paper? Well, this was life!
