Flash Fiction #206


PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields


Okay, gentlemen – and ladies, Mardi Gras is still a couple of months away, so this will be our first, get-to-know New Orleans tour. We will be focussing on safety – ways that people can hurt themselves.

Are there potholes where someone might trip and fall in front of a float? Is there a loose power pole, or low-hanging wires? Are there steep brick steps leading to the street, from a bar that’s overstocked with liquor? Is there a tree that some drunken moron might climb to view the parade?

Stay sharp! It will be a busy week for us Guardian angels.


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

  3. Dear Archon,

    Clever voice of a guardian angel. Great last line.

    It is no easy job to organise public revelry. Some one has to do the hardwork of seeing all arrangements are in place.

      Tell that to the 33,000 local and imported students who showed up in a 2-block stretch beside one of the local universities, for a drunken, home-coming celebration. No-one has died – yet, but we may set a new record next spring at the St. Patrick’s Day Invitational. 😯
      Thanx for stopping by though. 🙂

    I love the idea of a Guardian Angel patrol.
