Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for the prompt, and Georgia Koch for the photo.
I managed to work three prompts into one. Easily. Maybe I am a writer after all. Or maybe I’m just lucky that FF is simple, and I had a bunch of prompt posts in my eye to inspire me. Yeah, I’d go with lucky. Even The Daily Post title fit with this! After I wrote it! Luck, I tell ’ya. Okay, so it’s missing ‘and’ in the last sentence.

Clocks aren’t supposed to stand still like that. Dead—his grandfather clock, passed down long ago.
Broken like his boat that sat in need of repair, seemingly forever. Broken like his nose or the wine glass he threw. He was impatient; his marriage was scattered like a puzzle with pieces faded and unrecognizable. He pictured himself a court jester, how much of a bad joke his life became, enough he was in awe, staring at the clock. But he knew it—he wasn’t funny.
He decided to fix the boat—“relatively easy.” Besides his marriage, he knew all was right with the world.
All participation is welcome. The goal is to write a three-part story in a hundred words or less. You’re also encouraged to “think outside of the box.”
