Two Shoes Tuesday information:
Josie is the boss and so please read her introduction and first set of instructions:
"Here it is... our first official round of Two Shoes Tuesday... a place to share what we enjoy doing most... writing! Each week I'll provide a one-word writing prompt and ask you to share a short story, poem, essay, thought, or photo relating to that topic. (I'll post the writing prompt for the coming week on Saturdays to give you time to work on your post.)
Today's writing prompt is "SHOES"
When you've finished your post, share it with us by adding a link in [her] Mr. Linkey ..."

So my writing starts:
Six worker June bugs
they died on the job, making a tunnel through the rock wall
why do five out of six June bugs die laying (lying) on their backs with their fat stomachs straight up?
Research on this matter might find a cure for cancer or aids. Who knows? Perhaps the cool-aid drinkers (Bill O'Reilly term) will pick up the cause.
All insects have three pairs of legs.
That means each June bug must wear three pairs of shoes.
These workers were not wearing shoes.

Once upon a time the land was invaded by hordes of June bugs. These bugs quickly overtook the human race and most of the animals. A few animals they trained for manual labor tasks. But when the animals died of an epidemic, the June bugs had to fend on their own.
They had always been jealous of the human's ability to travel. Very quickly they developed automobile transportation. Their vehicles were modeled after the Tootsie Toy fleet vehicles. Most every boy and many of the girls had scads of these little toy cars, all of which were converted to become the first iteration of electric motor transportation.
These electric vehicles called the Bugs' Bug had become popular almost overnight. They had discovered that the German built Volkswagen Bug was called the People's Car and now they had their own which they dearly loved.
But with the onslaught of the newly built Bugs' Bugs models a problem surfaced, one that seemed insurmountable. There were no Tootsie Toy Bug's Bug sized roads. They could not tear down the people's houses and buildings and it would take too long to go around them all. And of course they could not go over.
Tunneling must be done so the Bugs could go under and through these monster-like existing structures. They had not yet developed jack hammers and hydraulics so manual labor was the order.
The Bugs had not heard the old saying, "this is killing us!" But with their vegetarian diet they lacked the ability to work hard all day chiseling away at the rocks and stones and other structural materials. They died by the millions, generally a work crew of six at a time.
They lacked the ability to bury their dead or to cremate. Soon the plague took over the land and they all died off. No longer did they die six at a time but now by the kazilions. Most all laying on their backs, naked with no shoes; according to statistics, five out of six always die that way.
Time will tell, who if anyone will gain control of the earth.
Will God see fit to recreate man? If so, will he be the new improved model?
Author's note: The real answer to that last question is NO. By God's definition, man is made in the image of God. [Genesis 1:27 -- "So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female."]
