Eight Heads to Cover – Friday Fictioneers – 12/20/17




For the mother of octuplets there is nothing more stressful than finding eight outfits exactly alike. Carrie wouldn’t have bothered if it weren’t for the contract with the Cosmo Kramer Agency which had all but totally financed her brood’s first decade of life. Sure there was a ton of public appearances and commercials, but how many dollars had they provided?

Carrie’s anxiety faded when she entered the store her friend Elise recommended. She smiled when she saw the stacks of hats before her. Finding eight matching hats would be no trouble this year.

“You want all eight?” the clerk asked.






For those that have answered the call for the Christmas themed flash I mentioned today is the day we begin. You can find the link to the challenge here:

  1. I have twins (they’re adults now) and my wife and I never felt it necessary to dress them at all alike. It’s hard for me to understand the practice since even a twin must have an individual identity.

  2. Our immediate neighbours have twin boys of around 5-6 years. I see them wearing the same clothes, same shoes, riding similar bicycles, and I wonder- How tough it would be for the parents. Octuplets! Can’t even begin to imagine 🙂

  3. I was going to say why would she bother (as I just don’t get the whole dressing them all identically – it’s bad enough to find one’s identity when one is a solo child, never mind one of eight!) – but then you answered my question right after!
