Yes! I am back after a couple of weeks. Life’s ramping up with a big move and a whole bunch of other things, so Friday Fictioneers might be hit or miss for a while. Today, I hope it’s a hit!
What is Friday Fictioneers, you ask? Every Wednesday, Madison Woods posts a picture on her blog. On Friday, she posts a 100 word flash fiction piece based on the picture-and invites everyone else to post a link to their own stories as comments. There’s quite a few people participating these days. I’m one of them!
I get a kick out of Friday Fictioneers and I also appreciate constructive criticism. If something about my story is confusing or could be worded better, please let me know!
Here’s this week’s prompt, story is below the picture:
“I still get a cold sweat every time I see one of those things,” I said.
Jay looked over at me and grinned. “What? A blimp?”
He laughed and shaded his eyes with his hand. “So you still think about it sometimes?”
“You know. What we pulled back in junior year.”
“Yeah, sometimes” I said. “I just thought it had remote controls or something. Never dreamed it would, you know, drift off.”
Jay chuckled. “We shoulda thought of that before we cut the cable.”
“Where’d it end up again?”
“New Jersey, I think.”
