It’s time for Friday Fictioneers, when writers from around the world post 100-word stories based on a photo prompt provided on Madison Woods‘ blog. This week’s photo is by Lora Mitchell.

Kip and Dredge Discuss Shakespeare

by Jan Brown

Kip and Dredge had been engaged in their favorite nocturnal activity: dumpster diving. They ambled out of the alley and decided to explore the boardwalk.

“Why would they put this statue here? Looks kinda like Puck.”

“Someone stole one of his wings.”

“Maybe it was Bottom. He was pretty mad when Puck changed his head from a normal, ugly dude to the head of a donkey.”

“You do know that was just a play, right?”

“Oh. Yeah.”

“Well, what did he do with the broken-off wing?”

“How should I know? Maybe he’s serving it to his friends with hot sauce.”


“Hey, you wanna get some Buffalo wings?”

  1. Ha Ha. That is a funny one. I can see the ole guys doing their ‘dumpster diving’ and finding the statue. Comical reaction. what a variety we see in these stories and photo prompts.
    I like what you said on your gr avatar bio about the ‘the power of prayer’ when having health issue. I can sure relate to both, (having health issues) and the power of prayer. Sometimes, God wants to take us through the struggles before taking us out of them, to make us stronger in our faith, and dependent on Him. Thanks for liking my stories and visiting my blog.

    • Thanks so much, Joyce. I’m glad we are blessed with God’s love and the imagination that He gives us.Among other things, it’s a great coping mechanism.

      Have a great weekend, and a great week!
