This week’s prompts are at the bottom.
Practice makes perfect. Let me know what you think.
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:
- treat him like a sister
- In case of fire
- getting out of hand
Go ahead and dive in, set your imagination free!
