April 5: Flash Fiction

April 5, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a silly sun story. Up north, “sun silly” is the energetic and playful response to returning sunlight. It could also be an April Fool’s jest, a silly story, or a reaction to spring fever. Be silly and write playfully! Go where the prompt leads.

Thanks Charli!

‘What’s that?’ Mrs Smith asked looking up the hillside.
The realtor didn’t want to lose the sale as the Smiths had been so taken with the property which ticked practically all the boxes on their ideal home.
‘It’s a sun meter.’ she said frantically thinking on her feet.
‘Oh? I’ve never heard of one of those. How does it work?’
‘Depending on the number of bands lit up on the structure determines how hot and sunny the day will be.’
‘Nice try, Miss Stevens,.’ he laughed, knowing it was the watch tower from the football stadium in the next town.

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.

    A good real estate agent has a ready answer. A playful exchange in good humor.

  3. Ha ha ha, most lies, even the ‘white’ ones, tend to get caught out in the end 🙂
