About this post:  How to write a story of exactly 50 words?  I opened a blank Word document and put in fifty “XXX” words so I would know exactly how many words I had written.  I think the XXX suggested AAA for triple-A (automobile association), and the story sprang from there.  One of my students ends her stories often with a reflection or question, so I must have borrowed her technique for the last sentence.
