"Russell, "I said, "didn't that silo spring up overnight?"
"You're right, Perry, it wasn't here yesterday!"
"Why would anyone need to build a 'Suddenly Silo' in a remote area like this?"
"No idea," said Russell, "let's investigate."
Russell and I crept up to the silo and I hoisted him on my shoulders so he could climb to the top.
"Russell, what do you see?"
"Bunch of people in suits ... and there's Jeb Bush!"
“The people in suits are talking sternly and waving fingers at Bush. Now he’s talking.”
"What's he saying?"
"Knowing what I know now, I would not have invaded Iraq ...Knowing what I know now, I would not have invaded Iraq ....God, I'm tired! ...Knowing what I know now...."
My guest star, fellow Friday Fictioneer Russell Gayer, not only lends his esteemed presence to the piece, he also lends his somewhat backwater home locale as the perfect highly private location for Jeb Bush to prepare for his presidential campaign, which is not off to a flying start.
Always off to a flying start are the other Friday Fictioneers, whose takes on the above prompt may be found by clicking right here.
Russell and I for President and Vice-President? We got the Suddenly Silo right here!
