It is Wednesday and good enough for Friday Fictioneers.  We gather each week with our stories of 100 words or so, inspired by a photo prompt.  We are happily hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple.  Here’s my story to the photo prompt from Dale Rogerson.

Dang!  Wanda swore to herself.  The lake was getting harder and harder to swim in.  She wished people wouldn’t be so careless.  It used to be so good here.  The water was pure and clear.  You could see to the bottom.  You could drink all you want.  It was that sweet.

Now look at it!  Full of junk and algae.  And the smell.  Never mind the taste.  She could just gag.  She hope that they would wake up soon before it was too late.  What could one do?  She swims away from debris.

Oh dang!  She’s snagged  her fin again.

    1. Right on! I tried to find out why it was called that but no luck. I’m so linear in my thinking so trying to be a little more creative. Thanks for the read.


    1. You got it right! I kind of like the name of the movie though never did see the movie. Kevin Kline humour is a little hard for me to get. Thanks for reading.


  1. Poor fish, has nowhere to go. Great story. About A Fish Called Wanda: you should definitely watch it, it’s hilarious. It’s not only Kevin Cline, but also Monthy Python humour with some Jamie Lee Curtis humour thrown in. It contrasts the quirks of Americans with those of British people. Makes me want to watch it again…

  2. Poor Wanda. What a great twist at the end. If we don’t mend our ways, we’ll all be like Wanda, except we’re trashing our own home, not someone else. The result is the same. We, at least at present, have nowhere else to go. Well done. — Suzanne
