Move Over, Superman

Forget about Clark Kent and his phone booths. Every Saturday night at the Bottomless Basin, a touch of razzle and a bit of dazzle turn Claire Kempf, myopic hygienist, into Sizzle: stripper extraordinaire.


33 words for , including myopic, dazzle and basin. Go figure.

And, because I know you thought of this: Razzle Dazzle, with Richard Gere speaking in Spanish!

  2. Cute, Kymm! Those other, secret lives...it makes a person wonder about the people we see every day...

    I love Jekyll and Hyde Claire! Now you have me hoping that my dentist is a Chippendales dancer;)

    Once again your writing has left a big smile on face face:)

    1. Hahahaha Too bad my dentist is a woman about my age whom I'd just at soon not see dance on a pole.
      Gave me a big smile right back, Valerie! Thank you!

    1. Wild women? Poor Claire would be quite offended indeed if you suggested she was wild.
      lol Thank you, Lance! I appreciate it.

  4. Good job jamming those words in something so short! And that is a crazy transformation, which made me smile. I wonder if the stripper pole is sanitized beforehand.

  14. Well now, I certainly wasn't expecting a stripper story when I clicked on your link. :) The "Bottomless Basin" is an apt name for a strip club and an unlikely place for someone whose livelihood revolves around oral hygiene. :) The juxtaposition works really well here. Strip joints are sad places, really. I appreciate the fine line you were treading between humour and the dark secrets so many of us keep tucked away from familiar eyes.
