February 28: Flash Fiction Challenge

Our Carrot Ranch challenge for February 28, 2019:
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the term backup. You can back up or have a backup, just go where the prompt leads!

February 28 Flash Fiction ChallengeI am responsible! I am caring and never shirk in my duty.
It goes with the territory and privilege of ownership.
People may laugh at my stuffed pockets, but I am always prepared.
You can buy one or even two hundred for a pound! Some are scented and come in pretty colours or with cute little cartoons on them.
I will even offer one if you are without, but don’t expect me to do your dirty work.
If there is one thing that never fails to put my back up, it’s dog owners not clearing up after their pets.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination 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! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
