A rude awakening

January 16, 2013

Lying on the sun bleached sand, distant reggae music wafting over me like the soothing ocean breeze, I felt truly content for the first time in months, until a soulless female voice announced, “cashier number nine please”. My inner peace abruptly shattered, I shuffled off to collect my jobseeker’s allowance.

  1. I like this. It is *so* the opening for a short television comedy / drama. A whole story in the opening 10 seconds

      Funny, I had to re-read it to remember what it was about. But yes, quite a lot of info in those fifty words. Glad you like it.
