Bare Escentuals Writing Challenge

Bare Escentuals sent me an email asking if I had a minute to procrastinate. Seriously? You have to ask? The challenge: write a short story using three eyeshadow colors and post it on their wall. Here’s my entry inspired by Mickey Spillane:

“Look Mike, I like you. You’re True Gold in a river full of fools, but you and me, it’ll never work. We’re from two different worlds. I’m Exotic Tara, star dancer at the Pussycat Lounge and you’re just a penny-ante gumshoe. Now get me to that bus stop and forget you ever saw me.”

I never pass up an opportunity to procrastinate!
