Welcome Diversions

“Another Friday Fictioneers huh?” he said looking over her shoulder as she read email in bed, “but it’s Wednesday, I don’t get it.”
Mildly annoyed by the intrusion she replied, “I like the challenge of getting my story written by Wednesday for Friday.”
“Then what will you write on Friday?” he teased.
“That photo prompt reminds me of a, an, a towering you know,” he stuttered with a mischievous grin, “a firm edifice” he finished.
“I supposed the power lines remind you of sparks?” she teased as he spooned closer.
Welcoming the diversion she purred, “Sparks and towering you know whats, now that’s something I can work with.”

I make no excuses for my flash nonsense this week but hey – no one was injured or dying today unless you count the “le petite mort” which may or may not have happened.

To see what the serious authors are writing this week go here for Friday Fictioneers, flash fiction in 100 words or less.

    LOL -No need for excuses.
    I guess great minds do think alike….because we kind of picked the same interpretation of the photo.

  2. I think his distracting behaviour led to a quickening of the pulse and the superfluous comma in ‘… remind you of sparks?, she teased …”.
    Love the very unsubtle double entendres.

  4. It is hard to find inspiration for stories sometimes, so you have to take inspiration where you find it. πŸ™‚

  7. Dear Tracey,

    Everyone’s entitled to this kind of a story. πŸ˜‰ I personally enjoyed it because it’s so easy for all of us to relate to.

    Shalom,

    1. Glad you can relate. I’m distracted by many things when I sit down to write. I think the morale of this story is, “Get out of bed to read email and save the bedroom for sleeping and you know what.” Doctor’s orders.

    What an exciting story. I read it over and over again, hoping my wife would come in and distract me, but to no avail.

    1. I’m laughing out loud. Try reading email in bed it attracks them like kids to high fructose corn syrup.

    Stiff competition for story of the week. The good thing is that you are not hard up for ideas now.

    Sometimes you just have to plan ahead of time for writing, and other distractions! πŸ™‚

    1. Good plan but the many distractions usually win out when I sit down to write.
      “better check email, ooo look what’s on Facebook, Sale?” and off I go.

  17. I’m shocked to see a doctor writing near soft core porn! I liked it though; nice double entendres.

    Is this all instead of or as well as a cup of tea? If it’s the former I am shocked, scandalized and appalled if the latter, sounds like fun!
