“A Bird in the …”

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 words

Scott was done with online dating. It was frustrating. Since he found that old medallion in the knick-knack shop, he was free. It allowed him to fly and fast! He had spent weeks perfecting his technique, riding the wind currents and soaring among the trees.

Now, he was flying alongside a 747, signaling to the cute blonde in 12C. She saw him wave and, after being shocked, smiled, waving back coquettishly. Suddenly a goose slammed into Scott’s face and he rolled back, smacking hard into the wing. After pulling out the feathers, he wondered if he still had his password.

    Scott, Doggone geese. Every once in a while one of those medallion comes along. Lucky you found one. You missed out on that blond, but better luck next time. Funny and well-written story. 😀 —Susan

    Very nice. I wish you remember your password. Very imaginative.

    oh, gosh! This is fanciful and fun and magical and made me laugh out loud!

    That was really funny. Where can I find this shop? Must be one of the antique finds (cursed or something)…..

    This was hilarious!

    Ok. Now where was this knick-knack shop? A medallion, huh?

    Cute story. I hope he got the blonde and found the password and lived happily ever after.

      Hm, well, even though I considered myself the “Scott” in the story, I don’t know where the knick-knack shop is. In fact, I don’t care a lot for shopping so I am surprised I found it…must’ve been a Goodwill shop. Oh, and no blonde, no happy ever after…:-(


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
