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.
Then we’ll link it up at Friday Fiction Headquarters, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields- Adicted to Purple.
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

Oy! What a delightful take on the prompt! A mishmash of DNA beakers explains a lot, doesn’t it? I’m still laughing out loud.
Oh so glad you enjoyed it, Rochelle! This was a fun prompt! 😀
Poor Noah! Your story made me smile!
Oh so glad Hannah. :D!
Looks like Noah and his three sons are in a bit of a picle.
That’s what happens when people try to play God.
Exactly! Noah probably got every animal mixed up. I wonder what they were supposed to look like? 😀
100 words? All I can think is a curious menage a quatre took place.
Ha! 😀 !
Well, what do you Noah, another D(o)-N(ot)-A(sk) how-it-got-to-be-so-funny story! An ark-ful of fun.
Haha! Janet — Best Noah acronym so far! 😀
Ha – poor Noah had to build an ark then mix the right DNA to start over
Oy and where’s the clean up committee?
Unfortunately I think they all drowned OY! 😀
Somehow, I’m thinking little Gregory wrote this story after Sunday School, Linda. Too bad Noah didn’t mix a little unicorn DNA in with the rest.
Hahah! You’re right Russell! Gregory ran away with my keyboard and when he gave it back it was too late. He had already pushed publish. And it is too bad about the Unicorn DNA — I can’t think of a single animal that wouldn’t be improved with the addition of a unicorn horn! 😀
Oye! Noah probably led that mixed DNA off the arc during the storm. Problem solved!
Oh that crazy wacky Noah!! 😀
Noah had too much Manischevitz again.
And he needs to stop drinking it out of those beakers. Randy
Hahaha! So true Randy. He just never learns his lesson when it comes to Manischevitz! 😀
Linda, well that explains this, feeling confused by this photo! Those darn beakers can be a little unsteady, that and a little arthritis. Big oops, huh? (This is going to be an interesting one!)
Oh you’ve got that right! Poor Noah. He was under so much pressure. No wonder his arthritis was acting up! 😀
Loved this clever little story. Very original use of the photo!
Well, that’s why you never see a unicorn anymore, but you see one of these guys every 15 minutes! They’re like Starbucks these days. I think my DNA was probably in one of those beakers too … .
Very funny take on this prompt. Enjoyed it!
Thank you Shainbird. I’m glad you enjoyed it. 😀
“Keep your robe on Shem…” Funny story:-)
So glad you liked it Trudy! 😀
Very funny – and perfectly suited to the prompt 🙂
Oh thanks! It really is a fun prompt, isn’t it?
a very creative original take on the prompt… funny 🙂
Oh thank you Shreyank! 😀
“What do I know from beakers? Besides my arthritis was killing me, oy!” LOL! That crazy Noah!
Ha! That Noah!! Wouldn’t you just love to see Moses and Noah get together? Oh what whacky adventures they would have! 😀
I love the rich variety this prompt has produced – thanks for taking me back into history and showing how it could have happened!
This was a great prompt. The responses were as varied as the animal parts! 😀
Lovely little piece. And topical for me: I’ve just become aware of all the stuff around the ark and DNA. People do excited about some weird things.
Oh that’s interesting Patrick. I find that happens a lot. I’ll be thinking about something and the next day somebody will have blogged about it. 😀
Ah Brilliant! My favourite flash so far, cleverly entwining the Biblical tale with a mix of science (which is so brave as Science and Religion have never been the best of friends!) and creating the back story of this wonderful creature. Then I guess the next step for Noah would be creating a clone!
Hahah! A clone definitely is the next step. Maybe next week’s picture will lend itself to a cloning story!! 😀
That’s awesome. So that’s where the platypus came from! 🙂
Exactly David!! Good point! 😀
Lovely. What else will emerge from that particular ark?
Ha! That’s a good question! 😀
Brillioant touch 🙂
Thank you Bjorn! 😀
LOL you’re extremely hilarious!! it’s the most awesome version of Noah’s ark i’ve ever read. ^^
Oh Thank you KZ! 😀
