This week’s prompt at Carrot Ranch is to write a story in 99 words (no more, no less) that contains the word mice. Here’s mine.
Of Mice and Girls
Mighty Mouse was Julie’s favorite cartoon; she sat enthralled on the living room floor every Saturday morning. When the mice got into trouble, he would fly to their rescue, saving them from the mean old cat. She thought him handsome in his tights and cape as he sang, “Here I come to save the day, Mighty Mouse is on the way!”
He was Julie’s hero, and she had a crush on him.
Julie had a little doll with a brown ponytail, just like her. When Julie played with her doll, she pretended she was Mighty Mouse’s girlfriend, his love.

For those who were children in the fifties and sixties, they might remember this cartoon. In addition, I can almost bet they mentally sang his theme song.
Not only did I love Mighty Mouse, but I also loved Tom Terrific and, especially, Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog.
