Words Worth A Thousand Pictures

Crushing the Cliche That A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

“Honey, Have You Seen Slinky?”

“Just keep smiling, ladies. Don’t look back. Keep moving. Laugh a little. Not too loud, Dorothy!”

“Do you think he recognized it?”

“How should I know? I sure hope not.”

“Maybe we should take it back.”

“Oh, don’t be silly! She’ll never miss it. Besides, the deed is already done. Nothing we can do about it now. Just keep walking and smiling. Try not to look nervous.”

“Ruth, you should have tucked it underneath your coat.”

“I didn’t have time! It was all I could do to get it to stop moving before we got outside.”

“Is he looking at us?”

“I don’t know. Don’t look back! Just keep moving.”

“What are you giggling for, Betty! Stop it! He’s going to get suspicious.”

“Oh, don’t be such a wet blanket. I can’t help it! This is just getting too easy. To think—in broad daylight.”

Later that evening, the trio counted their earnings. $3,792 total, counting the fox taken that day. Five more furs and they were headed to Paris to make some real money.

    I know that feeling exactly! (Not over theft of fox furs, but other fairly innocent/ suspicious behaviors). It’s just a tickle from the inside out. The “get away before we get caught”. You obviously have felt that before as well. Perfect for the faces. Makes me giggle just to look and think about it.
