Friday Fictioneers: Sign, Sign… Really?

Well I think a month has passed since my last submission to Friday Fictioneers and I am glad to be back! I hope that your holidays were wonderful and that you have caught your breath after the hectic pace.

It has turned into the great white and frozen north here in Indiana and I am hoping for a slight thaw here soon. Be warm and safe where you are! (And if you are warm, as in a warmer climate, please don’t rub it in!) ๐Ÿ™‚

Thank you Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for your leadership with this wonderful group! Here is this weeks photo prompt. (This is Flash Fiction at it’s finest! 100 words or so is the limit.)

Sign, Sign… Really?

ยฉBy Jim Kane

โ€œSign Sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign..โ€

ยฉLes Emmerson

The radio blared the classic tune as George quickly looked for the bathroom, or at least a bathroom, after a quick swim in the ocean.

โ€œGeorge, where are you going?โ€ shouted Marge, still his sweetheart and wife after 45 years of marriage, against the surf and stiff breeze.

Not bothering to answer, because he could not wait, he spotted the salmon colored structure and cautiously climbed the steps hoping for salvation.

RESTROOMS ARE LOCATED 100 YARDS UP THE BEACH the sign said.

    1. Hey Amy! Thanks!

      Yeah, swimming in an ocean, lake, anything non-chlorinated (and even then in chlorinated water sometimes) is often an adventure!

      Regards

      1. Hey! ๐Ÿ™‚

        You’re welcome. Happy New Year to you too! My siblings have had one full day of school this week. The rest were either cancelled or delayed!

      1. We have “Ski Dubai” inside a mall where there’s snow so anytime we want to see snow we can go there. Thanks for the offer! ๐Ÿ˜‰
