Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff -Fields at Addicted to Purple for hosting another week of the Addicting Friday Fictioneer. It is a where a bunch of us ink junkies use our talents to create a 100 word story using a photo prompt. Below is the photo and my story this week. Come try it out.
This week’s prompt comes from Beth Carter who took a first prize with it at the Ozarks Writers League photo contest in February. Congratulations, Beth!
I had lots of fun with this photo. As always I kept my G rated story at exactly 100 words. Critiques are always welcomed.
The Jojo Mobile
Jojo started tinkering in the garage, building his Jojo Mobile, when gas prices were rising. He hardly ate or showered for weeks. Ronnie, Ray and Steve found parts at the junkyard. He was so proud I had to hold back laughing. It reminded me of those elaborate go cars they use to race down the hill off Clarke Street back in the day.
He had everything in that car, but something was missing. As he started down the hill, in his new car he remembered what he forgot. Too Late.
The Eighteen Wheeler rolled over Jojo like a speed bump.
