#100WW — Our Time Will Come

“I know,” thought the headless silver mannequin standing next to her. “This is mortifying. There are racks of clothing items, and here we are, exposed to the world.”

The other headless mannequin thought, “The humans think we have no feelings, no pride, no shame.”

“Don’t worry,” the seated mannequin thought. “Our time will come soon enough. Then they’ll pay.”

    In a world where body shaming is a big issue, they shouldn’t complain. LoL

    RUBY & THE ROMANTICS – Our Day Will Come

    Often made into elevator music, yet memorable,
    this song fits into the department store environs.

      I love that song. The original, not the elevator music covers.

    I saw a scene very similar to this one last year – when the Sears store closed at the local mall. So bizarre! Great post!

    This was good. Reminded me of a Doctor Who where the mannequins came to life.

      Would you believe I’ve never seen even one episode of Doctor Who?

        Really? I highly recommend it. Especially the seasons with David Tennant, he’s my favorite Doctor. It is a nice “escape” from the world.
