The Attack of the Manikins


A version of this really happened.  My friend’s daughter works in a boutique, was trying to put clothes on a manikin and it fell on her.

Giselle was at work at her boutique, Giselle’s of Paris.  She was trying to put dresses on the manikins for the Spring fashions.

She struggled to put the dress on when whap!  The manikin hit her square in the eye.

Giselle ran over to examine her eye.  She was developing one heck of a black eye.  OOOOHHH!!  I was going to have a smashing date, but now look at me, that miserable manikin!  I’m going to teach it some manners!  No one will believe I was hit by a manikin!

She ran back to the where she was working on the manikins.  Suddenly it was like a malevolent version of the movie Fantasia.  The manikins were marching on Giselle who went running from the store.

Her date greeted her outside.  “My God, Giselle, what happened?”

She was crying and about to tell him when thwack!  Another woman hit Giselle’s date on the shoulder and back with her umbrella.  How dare you hit him!

Giselle cried, “Ma’am he didn’t hit me.”  The woman called to passerby, “He hit that young woman!”

People saw the growing black eye on Giselle and a burly construction worker looked Giselle’s date in the eye.  “Brave enough to hit women, huh?”  He then knocked him down.

A police officer picked her date up and put him in handcuffs.  The older woman hugged Giselle.  “Don’t worry, my dear, he will never hit you again. ”

“The manikin in the store hit me,” Giselle said sadly.

“Don’t worry dear, the ambulance is on it’s way.”

Where will the manikins strike again?”  Don’t hesitate to add to this tale.

  1. When I originally commented I clicked the
    “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!
