Hiding in Plain Sight

  1. Very well done ODNT… the sneer brings the image right into my face… Love it!

  2. You leave me wondering what his (now her) story is all about. It stands alone well, but I could also see this as part of a longer short story. Nicely done.

  3. Nice. I know a few and I can totally see them starting out that way.

  4. Stop spying on me.

  5. This is GREAT! Who did you get to pose for the pics – LOL!

  6. Man on the run, hey? There is a story in this paragraph.

  7. Loved the twist of this. And the pics!

  8. This was too much fun!

  9. hee hee! Ready for a night on the town…. I hope he has better luck with heels than I do.

  10. OOOOOOHHHHHH, I lOVE me a drag queen!!!!!!!

  11. Take a walk on the wild side…

  12. and some of those fellas do look damn good as a lady

  13. Love it!!!!

  14. Hmmm, I’d like to see where else this could lead.

  15. This is an intriguing story. He might be on the run, but he won’t be running too fast if he’s wearing slingbacks 🙂

  16. The most unique twist on the prompt I read this week. Fascinating and witty.

    Sorry for the late comment here. I like the pictures that accompany this, and I’m left thinking, “Good for him.” You have an amazing creativity about you. Thanks for lending it to us again.

    • Thanks, Trifecta. Yours is one of my favorite exercises (Shh, don’t tell the others) and I always enjoy participating when inspiration strikes and I have the time.
