FFfAW #200 14th January

Wow. Number 200, though I wasn’t doing these when they first started.

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers

Week of 01-15 through 01-21-2019This week’s photo prompt is provided by Yinglan. Thank you Yinglan!

The three lads paced out their makeshift pitch and decided Tim would be first in goal. Tommy and Pete would then go head to head,Β  so not exactly two against one, but it gave them practice and they would interchange positions so that they all got a shot.
They were doing OK until Miranda and her sidekicks came along and asked if they could play too, having three on each side.
Everything went to pot then as the girls proved to be better players than they were, conceding the first goal within five minutes of play and the second in ten.
They pulled one back though and half an hour later six tired but happy youngsters went for ice cream.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    May be if they had made teams made of both boys and girls, the game would have been more evenly matched and ice cream would be sweeter.
