Nice, but it ain't no Rocky ...
And Now For Something Completely Different ...
Every Friday the talented writer Madison Woods posts a writing prompt upon which many writers base their own individual 100 words or less stories. All these stories are posted, and folks across the internet get the opportunity to read how other peoples' interpretations of the very same prompt are so much better and more creative than their own.
At least, I think that's the point.
Anyway, today's prompt is up above, and I made up the story below. To be honest, it is actually 106 words long so I expect to be disqualified and yelled at by Madison.
So if you should comment, be kind!
Of the Statues in Philly
“I see an angel in despair over the state of mankind,” said Brandon. “What do you see, Dad?”
“Well, it looks to me more like an angel about to throw up. Probably after a big night of partying.”
“What about three wings? I perceive it as the artist’s way of dramatizing the angel’s anguish.”
“Nah, it’s to show how whacked the angel is. He’s not seeing double, he’s seeing one and a half!”
“It’s cool how art is subject to multiple interpretations and responses,” said Bran.
“And I hope your response, kid, will be to help repair the world. Mine, after I drop you off? Getting me a drink!”
