“The Bet”

By Scott L Vannatter

The couple looked intently at the photograph.

“That’s grandfather Glen,” said Trudy.  “It’s a picture of him on his first ride.”

“How’d he get that at 6 months old?” exclaimed Jerry.

“Well, see, his older brother, Jerome, could talk a bit and told his Dad that Glen could balance a full bottle on his head for thirty seconds.  they reached a better’s agreement, shook on it, and Jerome proved it to his Dad.”

“So, he won the bet?!”

“Yeah, …at least, he didn’t put the cart before the um goat.”

“Hm, or maybe…”

“Don’t say it!”

“Yeah, you could say he got his goat.”

“Bad, Tim. Bad. Quit smiling.”

Namaste,

    Usually, that’s true! I try to go with the first idea I have that goes with the pic. I have seldom had trouble with ideas. And short pieces like this come pretty easy for me. I don’t go to win the contests (though that would be nice). I just try to have fun with it.
