Can You Tell A Story In…

It’s Thursday and your new five-word challenge is here. Last week, I wanted to know about your HAIR. This week, I want to know what you think about SHOPPING. So can you tell a story in five words, using the word SHOPPING in it somewhere?

Here are your HAIR-raising stories from last week:

Her flaxen hair swayed gently.

Roots need doing. Hair SOS!
