Biscuit Crumbs…A prompt to a short Story #Prep

This week writing prompt from the lovely Lorna @ Gin and Lemonade is Prep

Verb: Prepare ( something) make ready. 


Biscuit Crumbs:

Crash! Ouch!

Trying to manoeuvre gracefully around the oil drum directly in my path I succeeded in clattering right into it. The biscuits I carried flew into the air and landed as crumbs among the shattered remnants of my plate.

“So pleased it wasn’t the best bone china”

The errant skateboard carried on for a few seconds and I was most unceremoniously dumped on my butt.



“That hurt.”

Watching my young grandson weave in and out with effortless grace on his skateboard evoked memories of my younger days when I was in marketing. My colleagues and I roller skating into an employer’s office to make our sales presentation.

It had gone so well on that occasion.

This had seemed like a brilliant idea, a novel way of presenting my Cup Cakes to Waitrose.

“What on earth was I thinking?”

Damm!  And ouch!  Back to the drawing board.

    Haha! A fun quick story, Carol. I’m such a klutz that I cringe at the mere thought of any kind of skate. The other day I saw a guy cruising down the street on one of those segue things — the kind that don’t have anything to hold on to… Yeah… not happening.
    Hugs! 😀
