She’s a stunner

The neighbors were not happy about my choice of yard art. I didn’t have a real problem until they took it up with the Homeowners Association.

Simon sat down with me and explained (at length) the CC&Rs we’d signed. How the statuary was in clear and fineable violation.

“So you see, Mr. Jordan, you’ll really have to remove the art immediately or face monetary penalties.”

“Come on, Simon, isn’t there something else…”

“I’m afraid not,” Simon sniffed and snapped his briefcase closed.

“All right, let me walk you out. Honey, this is Simon—Simon, have you met my wife Medusa?”

  1. Did Simon turn to stone? 🙂 Love your story! Thanks again for sticking with the MFtS challenge and I hope that you return next week! Be well… ^..^

    1. Wonder how hubby avoids gettin’ stoned. Polarized sunglasses? I didn’t really think about it, I suppose if you wanted to expand the story into a bigger one, you’d have to invent something.

      No mirror in the bathroom, Medusa. And look out for Perseus.
