Weekend Writing Prompt — The Perfect Woman

Todd was very pleased with the outcome. The 3D printer cost him a bundle, but its value was hard to quantify. What price can you assign to creating the perfect woman?

She had the beauty of his dream girl, but without the constant hassle of a living, breathing female. He could finally possess a woman and still live in peace. He needn’t worry about saying the wrong thing and facing a bitter harangue. What could possibly be better than a lifelike foam and rubber mannequin?

(Exactly 85 words)

Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “mannequin.”

Also for Word of the Day Challenge (quantify), Ragtag Daily Prompt (peace), and Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (harangue). Photo credit: KatTraill @ DeviantArt.com. Image stylized using Prisma.

And, before anyone jumps all over me for this rather misogynistic post, I am nothing like Todd. I much prefer a flesh and blood woman to a mannequin, even if that means suffering through a harangue every once in a while.

    I reviewed the trailer from the movie “Mannequin” (1980-something). This kind of remined me of that story. Nice.

      I don’t think I ever saw that movie. Does the mannequin come to life in it?

        To him, yes. It’ a late 80s – not very popular movie.

    If this was not an actual thing, I would find it funny, but it is an actual thing. There really are men out there who prefer to live with lifesize dolls who do not have any mind of their own.

      Really? This is an actual thing? That’s really sad.
