This weeks phrase: “Why are you smiling?” River Dixon, Beyond the Field

“Julie, I need your help in the garden,” Ted said.

“Okay, dad. I’ll be out after I change.”

An hour later, Ted looked up to check on Julie. He pointed. “What is that?”

“It’s a scarecrow, dad.”

“I can see that. Why is it smiling?”

“Because he loves his job.”

This story was written for the 50 word Thursday challenge, this week hosted by Teresa , The Haunted Wordsmith.
