Power Of A Yawn

A yawn went through the shop that day, loudly and proudly, and I could not get away. I watched it coming, flowing mouth to mouth, first it went east, and then it turned south. I tried to run, but it caught me as I turned a corner. A little girl yawned big before I could warn her. It is weird how powerful a yawn can be. I believe it got all of us and there were at least twenty-three. I tried to escape before it entered its second round, but I did not get far as this is a very small town.

News travels fast in small towns, and so do yawns, apparently. Such an entertaining little tale! :)

I run when I see one coming for me, but usually do not escape.

Don't worry; I work with over 500 people a day. I run when I see it coming.
