The Project

“Dennis! What are you doing?” Janice reaches for the tools in her son’s hand.

“Mom, I’m working on my school project.” He reaches for the tools.

“No! These are dangerous for a 7 year old boy.”

“I ain’t a baby anymore.”

“You should have asked for help”

“I wanted to do it myself.”

“What are you making?” Janice eyes the contraption stuck in a bucket.

“I have to make something that shows my heroes favorite saying.”

“And what is that?”

“The world is going to hell in a hand bucket.”


Thanks to Doug MacIlroy for sharing the photo prompt this week.

    Hahaha! I wonder which hero made the mistake of saying that around the boy?

    Heh, very entertaining!
    I’ve never been particularly skilled at being short fiction, or even being terse once I start on an idea, in fact… I’m kind of like Wash in that scene from War Stories… never mind.
    But this was fun and though I’m pretty terrible at flash fiction, I always get a kick out of reading enjoyable pieces of the same. Thanks.
    Also, thanks for dropping by my site, always nice to have a new face. If you ever feel inclined, would love to hear what you think of the stories I’ve posted up/post up.
    Cheers and happy holidays.
