This post is submitted to Friday Fictioneers. The challenge is to write a complete story with a beginning, middle and end in 100 words of less using the picture prompt below.


I always looked forward to it. My mother would come out of the house with a basket full of laundry. Draped across her shoulder was a colorful bag made by her mother that contained many wooden clothespins.

The wire clothespin lines ran between three wooden poles spaced evenly apart. I had my sponge, already watered, poised for action. I always waited until I got her nod to proceed. Stretching as high as I could I grasped a line at the beginning of the end pole and with a loud “Geronimo” launched myself at full speed towards the next pole.

I can still hear my mother laugh!


Tell me your thoughts!
