Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction – Nancy said it best

“These boots were made for walkin'” she sang as she left their home. She loved all types of boots but today donned her thigh high black leather ones. They were perfect for taking care of business, and people tended to get out of her way when they saw her coming.

Her reputation for getting what she wanted when she wanted it was well known. She ignored the whispers on the street as she passed. Determination in her walk to the local bar, she hummed the tune loud enough for bystanders to hear.

“Guess Joe’s in trouble again” they whispered.

    I don’t know if I should be thinking, “Poor Joe” or “Lucky Joe” 🙂 This was a fun story and I liked it a lot; and I also like that Socrates quote.
