Here is my effort for Fandango’s One Word Challenge today:

She was highly traumatised, sobbing it would ruin her chances of fame and fortune.
It was laughable really, but to so much as smile would have had devastating consequences on an eight year old who had overheard her parents discussing some photographs they had sent to a child’s modelling agency. Convinced she was going to be a model fuelled her already inflated ego, so this latest tilt was a catastrophe.
The staff didn’t know what to do, so called her mother.
She was not amused at having to leave work to accommodate yet another phone call from the school about her daughter, especially when it was all down to a missing bloody front tooth!

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Oh my! So soon the little girls become obsessed with body image. This seems a little extreme but then again I had a coworker whose daughter refused to go to school because her hair wasn’t parted just so…

    • She may have been related to the one I worked with then. I have never known anyone so obsessed with their lippy and hair, so obviously it rubbed off on the daughter. The father was already spending her modelling money, and they’d only sent off photographs! Nothing came of it anyway, and the child was impossible after that. She kicked up a fuss about not having a £75 frock for a party then wanted her hair done a specific way which set her Mum back £125! (about $165 I think).
