Flash 55 – Shopping Is Dangerous

  We took a trip through the wild jungles of the World’s Largest General Store in Pennsylvania.

~ click the images to make them biggerer ~

I was attacked by a humongous snake.


With no one to save me (Mommy and Oma were looking at shoes), 
I wrestled the beast.


It almost got the best of me but


I got it in the end.

You can tell this story is pure fiction as I don't really like to shop for shoes - books and art supplies - but not shoes.

Kiki - Thanks for checking out Creationist Thinking and your lovely comments. I have more sites than one person really needs.


Otin - I love the movie Immortal Beloved, especially the scene at the end where he's floating in the black water that turns into the starry night sky. I think of it often.

  14. I liked your story, Nessa. I sure was sorry to hear that it was 'fiction.' I wanted to ask you if you got out of the store without buying that kid a snake. Or the monster that saved him?
    Your pictures were neat too. I doubt you had any trouble getting him to pose.
    ..
    BTW, I checked on Country Junction being the "world's largest general store' and found that this title is 'self proclaimed.'
    It hurts not to have a Texas store claim the title. Since the Pa. on burned to the ground and was rebuilt in 2006 I think ours in Orange, Texas, is probably the worlds largest 'original' general store.
