The bad idea (Friday Fictioneers)

February 9, 2017


Okay, so… it hadn’t been the smartest plan… or even a clever one.


Okay, it was a really bad plan.

A really, really bad plan.

…But after a few cans, everything sounds feasible, right?

Mick had the boat. Robbie had the rope. Jonno had snow skis in the back of his ute.

And me… I had a chair.

For about sixty seconds it worked.


Robbie went first. His gleeful shouting was infectious. “Wooooooo it works, it works!”


He sank. Straight down. Then he went under.

Coughing and spluttering, he surfaced in moments.


We soothed our sorrows with another beer.

  11. Dear Laurie,

    They say the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. 😉 I have three sons and a husband so I know the truth of that. I could see these shlemiels out there drinking beer and pulling stupid stunts. Great fun. Well done.



  12. Yeah, brings back memories of doing daft things myself. Very enjoyable. The beer helps and you have a great laugh for future reference. There’s a lot to be said for it.
