55 Flash Fiction Friday - 4/11/08

The challenge is to tell a story using only 55 Words.


First day of school. Third grade teacher, Mrs. Johnson sat at her desk fretting over the class roster. As the clock inched towards roll call, she realized she had no chance of pronouncing more than a handful correctly: Jaanai, Faizah, Eliyahu, T'ien-Khuan. Oh how she longed for the good old days of Davids and Susans.
