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 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.
