Welcome Readers and Writers! Come in! Grab a handful of letters from Linda’s Big Bowl 0′ Letters and a big glass of Tang and let’s have fun Blogger Style by making a 100-word story out of them for Friday Fictioneers.
Oh and don’t worry about spilling any Tang on Rochelle’s carpet, I’m bringing my cyberdog, Constantinople; he’ll lick up anything. (And Rochelle will never even know! Ha!)
Here’s this week’s Friday Fictioneers’ story prompt picture!
Trouble with An Aging Parent
“Dad! Look at this mess! The DNA beakers got all jumbled up in that last storm!”
“Keep your robe on, Shem. I’ll sort them out later.”
“But, Dad, you shouldn’t have just set the beakers so haphazardly on the shelf like that! They’re breakable for heaven’s sakes!”
“What do I know from beakers? Besides my arthritis was killing me, oy!”
“Dad, what did Japheth and I keep telling you over and over, huh? That you were too old to build that ark by yourself, didn’t we?”
“Nonsense Shem! I’m 600 years young!”
“And now your arthritis is acting up again, Dad. Happy?”
Until next time . . . I love you
