Shoveling Shit

It’s my favorite poetic night of the week.  Write a story in exactly 55 words and let G-Man know about it.  He truly is the most gracious host from coast to coast!  It’s Friday Flash 55!

I find that I would rather shovel shit than go to my day job.

That might seem strange, but here’s why.

You know what you’re getting into right from the start.

It’s equal~everybody shits and nobody smells good.

You can see you are making progress

and feel good about a job well done.

It’s honest.

  1. I don’t imagine you’ll find more honest work than shoveling shit.

    My favorite is horse shit, early on a Sunday morning when I’m all by myself………..


    Love your shit, baby! 😉

  2. I agree with what G-man said about pig…
    It’s really, really bad.

    But your 55 is really good… and true. 🙂

    Thanks for another Friday 55!
    Mine’s here. 🙂

    • I’m on vacation, but this title caught me attention as I have shoveled (and still do) plenty of horse shit. Ha ha…and your point is so true! Loved this.

  3. I’ll say this…
    I’d MUCH rather shovel Goat shit or Horse shit, (Which I have done more than once)
    than shovel Pig shit or Chicken shit.
    Loved your Shitty 55 Teresa
    As my son would say…Your the Shit!!!
    Thanks for playing, and have a Shit-Free and Kick Ass Week-End
