Mississippi Miracle Mud

Time for Saturday Centus hosted by Jenny. As usual the opening prompt is in italics and the rule is to complete a short story in a hundred words or less – and no pictures!

I look back over my shoulder, squinting into the late afternoon sun, gawking with stunned alarm at the broad rolling muddy waters of the Mississippi, when I say ‘alarm’ I really mean realisation. It’s at this moment I recognise that this is a glorious business opportunity – there are millions of gullible women (and some men!) all over the world who would pay an absolute fortune for some Mississippi Miracle Mud. Underneath those rolling waters lies a gold mine – I don’t understand why nobody has thought of it before or have they?
