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 147 word post today is FOOTBALL.

“Dad do you want to play football?” asked Sean.

“I have to mow the lawn.  Maybe next Saturday.”

“That’s what you always say,” mumbled Sean. 

Kara watched her son’s downcast face as he went into the living room and turned on the television.

Later, James came in from mowing the lawn and found Sean playing video games.

“Hey Dad there is this indoor football throwing training center near the mall.  Can we go after dinner?”

“Not tonight Sean.  I’ve had a hard afternoon.  Tonight I just want to relax.”

Sean switched off the video game system and turned to cartoons on the television.

After dinner, Sean spent the evening in his room with his handheld game system.

In the living room, Kara and James watched the television as First Lady, Michelle Obama spoke about Let’s Move, the initiative to solve the problem of obesity within a generation.
