PHOTO PROMPT – © Ted Strutz
Mama always said you should never waste an opportunity to show your dignity. “Never leave the house in your pajamas”, she said. “People might think you come from trash, and we ain’t trash!”
Mama’s dignity is mine now, in the house and on the property. Just yesterday, we had to replace that old toilet in the bathroom and those idiots dumped it out by the garage. I took one look and knew what had to be done.
With Mama’s voice ringing in my head, I prettied it up some so the neighbors wouldn’t think we was dirt.
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction prompt where we are given a photo and asked to write a 100 word story – beginning, middle and end. This one came in at 97 words. I hope you enjoy!
