May 4: Flash Fiction Challenge

May 4, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about comfort food. How can this familiarity influence a story or character? Is it something unusual, like Twinkies from the 1970s? Or is it something from home, from another place or time? Go where the prompt leads.

Thanks Charli. If you want to join in, check out the original post here:

Aunt Jan’s anti-depression kit was renown for keeping her blues at bay but a well kept secret until she died.
She swore by it for years and it never failed.
She always kept it handy, knowing that in an emergency she could just reach for it without getting into a panic wondering where she’d put it or when she’d last had it.
All was revealed when the stash of chocolate bars and jelly babies were discovered under her bed in a zipped holdall.
Apparently when she felt low she would comfort eat her favourite goodies without having to share!

 

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
