I Need Another York Peppermint Patty

Is it only day SEVEN of the MONTH LONG daily writing challenge?  I haven’t had time to do chores… to cook… to clean… to DRINK!  Today’s challenge theme is “Hint, hint.”  This is another short one.  In my defense, I was at a hospital all day helping someone who was having an outpatient procedure done.  Someone should be forgiven… hint hint?

I opened the wrapper but dropped my thin mint.

It rolled on the floor and got covered in lint.

Katherine needs a PREPAID maid… hint hint?

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Katherine, you are SO clever!

    GREAT one for Peppermint Patty! Which btw, is one of my most favorite candies!

    And I applaud you for participating in this writing challenge!

    Have a super weekend, my friend X

    Very clever! In a house with cats you don’t eat what hits the floor.

    Oh, like an Andes Mint. I was thinking Girl Scout cookies and couldn’t get past the wrapper.

    Good one! Good Luck with maid.

    Hmmm, thin mints. Yummy. Now I can’t think of anything else.

    I need one too, Katherine. Hint hint! I need one more than a candy or lint.

    I’m afraid the crap shack is beyond the help of a prepaid maid. *sigh* I may just have to bulldoze the place and start over again.

    Prepaid maid sounds good to me… (hint, hint!)

    Very nice…hope the person getting the procedure is OK. Lint on a thin mint is never a good thing.

    Short and sweet, but amusing as always. You do so much with so few words in some of these posts. I admire your word economy. I need to take a page out of your book, because I could learn a lesson or two on keeping it brief.

    You should get more than one new mint. You know, just in case. :)
