CCC#62: Just Zip It (flash fiction)



Just Zip It


Teri was proud of the name of her new shop and was certain it would help bring in the customers, this time. Her previous efforts had all ended disastrously: first there was her “Odd Sock Emporium” which didn’t overly excite the public, and then her “Rat Trap Shack” which also spectacularly failed in the marketplace. It was third time lucky, she hoped. She was sure her new shop full of zips would finally bring her the success she had dreamed of. It had any zip anyone could possibly want, and the quirky name “Just Zip It” which would surely help it stick out in the minds of the shoppers.

This was the morning she finally opened the doors of her new enterprise. She stood there with a smile frozen on her face waiting for the crowds to come. Any moment now.
