One of Those Days

By Scott L Vannatter – 150 Words (MS Word)

“I’m thirsty!” yelled Thorman, looking at the “Caution and Out of Order” warnings on the drinking fountain.

“It doesn’t work, obviously,” said Milo,

“Water is water.  I don’t care if it’s cold or not.”

“You don’t know why the signs are on it.”

Thorman studied the inoperative device.  He looked long and hard at the contraption as you would at someone just daring you to try something.  He stepped forward and pressed on the “push” bar.  After several tries, the machine sputtered, then shot a warm stream of water two feet hard into his face.  He gagged a bit and stared angrily.

“I doubt that’s the reason it doesn’t work,” smiled Milo.

Angry now, Thorman smacked the uncooperative fountain, then grabbed the wire on the side.

“What’s…” he screamed and fell to the floor holding his smoking hand.

“That’s probably the reason.”  The statement came with a partially held-in snicker.

“The Bet”

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.”

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.
