The Label Around Your Neck

Occasionally I like to challenge myself with word-limit fiction. Here's a bit of 50-word fiction for you...

“Another miracle of modern science,” said Dr. Jones, congratulating Dr. Shaal. 

Dr. Shaal stood watch at the window of the neonatal unit, embodying disquietude.

“Have you noticed how all children aren’t born with labels?" asked Dr. Shaal rhetorically. 

Unaware, the Novak’s loomed over their new-born daughter, applying their bygone tags.
