Flash Fiction #161


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields


So your grandson got an interview for the assistant quality-control position.
It’ll be straight day-shifts, and Monday to Friday, and a raise.

Great!  Look, I’d love to stand and talk, but Hubby’s bringing home his boss and wife.  I’m a little tied up right now.  I’m trying to make her favorite salad to impress them.  It has kale and watercress and pine-nuts.

I have to run to the store to get balsamic vinegar.  I don’t know how it will taste, but it’ll look great in my crystal salad bowl.  Call me later.  I’ll tell you how it went.


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

    You’ve taken an interesting inspiration from the prompt, and turned it into a lively little story.


  3. Great dialogue – I could almost hear them. I would write more but I have to dash…!

    This is great. So real, a conversation I could easily have had myself. Well done.

    A believable snippet of conversation.

    Kale and watercress definitely need balsamic vinegar to lift them. The presentation will certainly help to impress.
