"I want that " the four-year old said, poking about in the pantry. Packages rattled.
"This too", he said. Baking supplies collected quickly on the counter.
Pointed out with the long wooden spoon, nuts, raisins and chocolate chips were picked out in a flash.
"Just in time! he said, beating on the lid of an empty tin.
" Look what I found! The secret ingredient!"
I shook my head.. "It's empty".
"A drum!...You mix, I drum,!" the little curly-headed one said, laughing, banging loudly on the tin can. Instant Migraine. The secret ingredient.
Flash fiction inspired by Red's M3 Flash Fiction Challenge. The Drum has a word count of 95. The limit for August was 100.
Is that Incoming I hear?
Cute! Flash fiction is fun to read Raymond, especially on your site here.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Christyb! "Christyb likes flash fiction, instant migraine headache from the secret ingredients or not " ":) ~RDelete
Instant Migraine ingredient for sure!My son used to love loud noise when he was little until he discovered slowly dripping water in the sink and Dixi cups to collect it in. Thank God! I was all for that! Have a good one RK. Good stuff you are cranking out...VKReplyDelete
Vk, this was rooted in the past, we all used to beat on stuff just for fun. Instant migraine for mother--but she tolerated our 'fun' well and taught us to bake stuff instead...smart,huh? Thanks for your kind comments... ":) !RDelete
