Flash Fiction # 110

LOOKIN’ SEW GOOD

Grandma had the best legs in town. (That didn’t sound creepy or perverted, did it?)

I asked her one time how she kept them so trim and muscular. With nine kids, she saved money by making clothes on the old, treadle sewing machine.

Grandpa saved, and finally bought her an electric model. The first time the power failed, the old antique got lugged back down from the attic.  “Besides,” grandma explained, “that wimpy little motor can’t handle leather or denim.  How do you think I got the most gorgeous gams?”

Grandpa just grinned.
I think I need some brain bleach.

    Another good pun on the word ‘sew’ – definitely a theme this week! As for Grandma’s legs, well, I couldn’t say that about my gran but I’m sure there are some Gran’s out there with legs to be admired! Nice story.

  3. Dear Archon,

    I suspect chasing after nine kids didn’t hurt those shapely gams either. 😉

    Shalom,
