I’ve joined Flash in the Pan Hosted by Red Dwyer. Each flash begins with a single word. It should fit into the quarterly theme of Boys and Their Toys. The word must be used exactly as listed. All flashes must stand alone to be accepted. The word for my 75 word post today is SOLDIERS .
Remembering last year’s disappointment, Joey approached the booth, handed the carnie his quarter and selected a plastic duck.
“You’ve won a Chinese finger trap,” said the carnie.
Joey accepted his prize with a frown. Watching the ducks race around the water tank, he gave up his last quarter for another chance.
“This is your lucky day,” said the carnie.
Joey watched in wonder as the carnie handed him one of the soldiers with a parachute.
