Flash Fiction #204

Shuffle, shuffle, wait. Shuffle, slosh, wait. Slosh, splash, wait.

Rain is running down the back of my neck. I think there’s a hole in my boot.

Unless you’re the lead sled-dog, the view never changes, just a line of assholes in front of you.

“What Honey? Oh, I was just listening to Alanis Morisette singing her first hit, on my iPod. Haven’t heard that in a while. Remind me again, why are we standing in line in the rain, waiting to get into a Kohl’s? They’re giving away free Knirps umbrellas to the first 50 shoppers??! Now, isn’t that ironic?”


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


Click above, if you’re enough of a masochist to want to hear her sing the only song about irony – that isn’t.

    I expect once they leave with their free umbrella the sun will be out…


  2. When the sun comes out they’ll be queuing for ages for sunblock lotion!

    Here’s my story.

    Wet feet is the worst – get yourself some new boots. I like the song choice, so appropriate.

    I know this is fiction.
    No one stands in line to get into Kohl’s….

  6. This was very amusing. Nicely done.
