Flash Fiction Photo Prompt For Kreative Kue

Happy day-before-Friday. Sun’s shining here once again, and the grass begs for a cut. It can wait. Well, at least until I finish posting here. Today I’ve decided to participate in author Keith Edgar Channing’s “Kreative Kue” Please follow the link to Keith’s fantastic blog.

Here is the photo prompt:

My Take:

“So, Mr. Wrightbottom, can you tell us about the endangered Snufflepotomaus bird that inhabits this area?”

“Actually, that’s Snufflepotomaas, but I’ll forgive your ignorance. I’ll do better. I show one to you.”

“Really?”

“Observe.”

“Um, are those M&M’s you’re pulling out of your bag?”

“My what? You mean my satchel? And ‘duh’ . . . I mean of course these are. Watch and learn. Look towards the long grass, near the base of that larger tree.”

“Okay! I mean, Larry, turn the camera that way.”

“Nyuk! Nyuk! Gobble! Gobble!”

“Oh . . . okay, and what is that move you’re doing? What does bobbing your head and sticking out your tongue do?”

“I’ ‘aw’ ‘in’ in’.”

“Ummm . . . it draws them in?”

“’uh, ‘uh.”

“You’re nodding, so I guess that’s a ‘yes’.”

“Nyuk! Ny—”

“Mr. Wrightbottom, what exactly is going on he—”

“Hey! We told you yesterday to stay out of here! This time I’m gonna’ call the cops! Flattening the ground keeper’s tires in his driveway, and then stealing his clothes from the locker! You’re going to jail, buddy!”

“What the **** is going on here!”

“Psst! Dave, we’re still on the air.”

“Oh ****! I mean, keep rolling! This boring gig just got a whole lot more exciting! Who knew the crazy guy could run! Did he just . . . aghh! Could have gone all day without seeing that!”  

“I hear you Dave, in all my years I’d never thought I’d watch a naked man being chased across a golf course, while dropping M&M’s from his bag.”

“It’s a satchel! And who’re you calling crazy!”

“Apparently he can hear well, too.”

“Okay, I guess that’s a wrap, or unwrap. Larry, you want to go for a beer?”

“Yup, or two.”

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.
