The Friday Fictioneers Late Night Memorial Day Weekend Double Header Picture Show (in the back row)
Friday! Madison Woods & the Friday Fictioneers! Read all about it HERE and play along.
It was an interesting picture this week. My first reaction was I can’t think of anything to write about a couple of goofy moths waiting for breakfast at McDonald’s so I wrote this -
Breakfast at McDonald’s
Michael felt his pulse quicken as he read Madison’s message that the photo prompt was up. He loved these prompts and looked forward to them, maybe a little more than another person would consider normal.
He looked at the picture and swore. “What the hell is this?” he shouted loud enough to raise a comment from a co-worker.
“Moths at McDonald’s!”
Michael refocused on the picture and shook his head at the absurdity of two moths at the drive-up window at McDonald’s.
“To hell with this,” he said. “I’m not doing this week’s challenge.”

Then I was looking at the picture again yesterday and I suddenly had an idea for another 100 word shortie so, with hopes that two teeny-weeny shorties isn’t a violation of the Friday Fictioneers Code of Honor, here’s #2.
Jasper stood breathless on the hot asphalt of the McDonalds drive-thru, ignoring both the heat and the hungry drivers lined up behind him. He was focused on his two unique finds: the large brown moth and the luna moth. Jasper and his wife had been collecting moths for years and he shivered thinking how excited his wife would be with these.
The moth hunter swept his net in a graceful downward arc and nabbed both moths.
“Oh, joy!” he said.
Jasper smiled as his wife approached. He presented her with the net and said, “For you, Edwina. Happy Moth-er’s Day.”
