Dinosaur

Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.  This week’s prompt photo is from Doug over at ironwoodwind.

Yeah, yeah, late again…

“It’s a fish!” little Hailey exclaimed.

A smile hit me.  I swear she acts cute to make me smile.  I lifted her up into my arms.  “Plesiosaur,” I said.

She looked back at the sculpture.  “A dinosaur?”

“Reptile.  But during the time of the dinosaurs.”

I swirled the ice in my drink.  Today, Hailey called me a dinosaur.  Why, yes, I still use an old record player.  At least, coming from her, it sounds like a term of endearment…

Day four without power, a particularly bored Hailey began to enjoy reading my ancient hardcovers.  Now, what does that make her?


The goal for Friday Fictioneers is to write a story, beginning-middle-end, in at most 100 words, based on the prompt photo.  You are also encouraged to “think outside of the box.”
