Challenge #2 did not come nearly so easily as the first one. An idea popped into my head right away, but executing it was much more difficult.
The first draft was over 2200 words. More than twice the maximum allowed. Granted, I had rambled my way through much of the story, but by the time I’d trimmed it down to 1500 words, I felt like I would have to start sacrificing meat along with the fat. I liked very much my solution for the need to mention shaving cream in the story, though. I just hope that the judges can find something to love about it too.
My submission for the NYCmidnight Flash Fiction Challenge #2 is in with two hours to spare.
