Flash Fiction #283

PHOTO PROMPT © Jan Wayne Fields


Yeehaw!!  It’s Canada Day, and, as usual, the city was celebrating with a big Multicultural Festival in the downtown park.

Bruce had spent most of the afternoon sampling the food and drink – perhaps too much.  He approached another food truck.  “Gimme two crispy tacos.”

I tell yu befoe, we no sell tacos.  Yu go way now please.

Okay, okay, don’t get yer serape in a twist!  Gimme a chicken quesadilla.  You got any’a that Japanzie beer, Kirin, in one of them kegs?

We no sell beer.  We sell flowah.

Sir!  Park Security. Please come with us.  You need a rest.


If you’d like to join the fun with the Friday Fictioneers, just go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday photo as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.

      Alcohol can remove inhibitions – like to having too much alcohol. Once started, it can be difficult to judge when to stop. For this guy – before he started would have been a good time. 😳

        As a counselor, I worked with many who struggled with alcohol. Never having touched any of it myself, I had a lot to learn! There has been alcoholism in my family, which is part of the reason I’ve never wanted to try it. I’m very grateful for clients I had who were willing to share their journey with me, educating me about addiction and recovery.

    Happy Canada Day from SE Queensland. Fun story, it reminds me of a festival or two I may or may not have frequented…
