Sunday 160 - Confined


In the dark, damp space 
he struggled 
as he twisted his body 
into the only position 
he felt would give him 
any sort of leverage. 
He hated working under the sink.
______________________________

If you want to play along with the Sunday 160. Here are the rules.

1. The Sunday 160 only uses EXACTLY 160 characters (including spaces).
2. Keep on schedule - post after 8:00 PM Pacific Time on Saturday.
3. Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
(Be sure to mention you have posted a 160. Provide a link if you can)
4. Visit at least one other Sunday 160 writer.

Oh, I know that feeling! And then the Teflon tape turns into a wad and the wrench slips.

One of the great advantages of being a woman is that I can follow the GALMI code (Get a little man in). For under-the-sink jobs a LITTLE man is useful!

I'm up here

Haha nice! I like this. I can't stand confined spaces, personally.

I can do that easier than get under the dashboard of a car which I can not do any more at all.
