Mondays Finish the Story – September 14th, 2015 – The Modern Witch


Finish the story begins with:  “From her small balcony, the witch watched the world go by.”

All she saw most days was a lot of bad and ugly and occasionally some good.

The world had gone crazy she thought. Then again a lot had changed she had to admit. Even the house she now lived in was a modern construction and nothing like the ginger bread one she first lived in.

Where once she plied her trade of spells and potions with ease around the district now days there had been a great change in the way goods were made and distributed.

She had to learn to use computers; set up an online ordering business and worst of all learn the ins and outs of money. A spell or potion for a chicken was no longer the way to go.

Her once lofty reputation was now days a name and a memory she thought as she logged on to see if there were any new orders.

    Life must be tough for her, poor lady. She’ll probably have a lot of weirdos contacting her. I hope she has PayPal and an eBay accounts. It would make things so much easier for her. If she could get a good positive feedback designation of 100% from eBay, she’ll be set 🙂

  2. Got to change with the times! Wow, what a difference from a gingerbread house to computerization! Good story!

  3. I wonder if she dressed in her rags and hat whilst logging in 😀

  4. Every witch way she tries spells success.

  5. It’s tough being a witch these days 🙂

  6. I had to smile when I read that she use to live in a gingerbread house. Makes me wonder if she ever said what she did with Hansel and Grettal. LOL! I really enjoyed this story Michael and I’m afraid she is like the rest of us, having to move into the computer age and such.

    Interesting story with a universal appeal… Loved it:)

  8. Michael, did you get the FFfAW challenge post last night and/or this morning? I sent that out 3 times and I don’t think everyone got it. I thought I would ask you if you got it. Sorry to bother you over in Barb’s challenge, but I just needed to know. Thanks!

    Keeping up with the changing times is not easy, especially when you’ve lived as long as the witch! An entertaining story, Michael. 🙂

    Oh – the modern inconveniences…

  12. Cute story, Michael. I loved that she used to live in a gingerbread house and now uses a computer. Looks like she’s doing alright in her new business mode. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
