[A Flash Fiction 55-worder]


Feeling strange, I awoke in the body of "The Donald." After a shower and shave, an elegant breakfast and a limo ride to his plush Manhattan office, I sat in his swivel chair and watched my old self enter through the polished mahogany doors.

Without pity or remorse, I calmly said to me, "You're fired."

Laughed my head off James...The Donald couldn't have said better himself!!!

P.S. I wonder if he himself has ever heard those fateful words???

Writers need feedback, pro or con, so I thank all those who took the time last week for this short piece. Re Beatrice's query: perhaps ex-hubby Ivana once told him that? - Jim
