OLWG #103- Fishin’

This week’s prompts are at the bottom.
Practice makes perfect. Let me know what you think.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.



Picture Bennett sitting in a camping chair with a fishing pole in one hand and a Budweiser in the other. He is shirtless… cutoff jeans… water shoes.

A young boy sits on the bank next to him and digs through a picnic basket as Bennett watches the river flow.

Bennett’s attention is drawn to the boy and he watches him searching for a moment. Then, he clears his throat, waves a mosquito away from his ear.

“How’s school, Kevin?”

“It’s OK, Dad.”

“What’s your favourite subject?”

“It changes from time to time, but right now I guess its Science. We’re studying the universe. Stars, planets, black holes, white dwarfs, light years, things like that. It’s pretty cool.”

“Light years, huh? What’s a light year?”

“You don’t know what a light year is, Dad?”

“’Course I do, boy. A light year is ah, well it’s, I reckon it might be the same as a regular year, only one third fewer calories.”

Their laughter cuts off when Bennett’s line goes taught. The fish starts to run.


This week’s prompts are:

  1. treat him like a sister
  2. In case of fire
  3. getting out of hand

Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
Write something
Ready, Set, Go – you have 25 minutes, but if that is not possible, take as long as you need and, have fun!

    It is a unique moment when a child realizes that their parents don’t know everything… and another when that same child is grown and realizes their parents were actually right about some stuff too. 🙂

    I got a tad carried away with this four part series, but each part is only 99 words each:
    An Annulment Achievement
