Flash Fiction #199


PHOTO PROMPT © Jan Wayne Fields


What’s this thing supposed to be, IF, and when we get it finished – a Gaze-Bow?? …. gah-zee-boe?

Easy to assemble. Up in minutes. Right!! Like the minutes of the last sales meeting – they weren’t finished till a week later.

Insert strut A into cavity 7. Where’s you get this thing – IKEA??

Aargh! I’ll hold that side down. Do you have any bricks for ballast?

We should have assembled this in the garage, and then just dragged it out.

It’s all your fault. You should have known better than to buy something made by the Big Bad Wolf Tent and Awning Company.


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

    I despise those things. We bought one for a family reunion and it went sailing into the woods. We bought one years later for a yard sale and it went sailing into the ditch across the road. Maybe they’re actually meant to be sailboats and we’re using it incorrectly.
