for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Improvise.
Always inclined to improvise, Benny’s life was one of disaster after disaster.
As a youngster he could have drowned when he took to sea in a bathtub but forgot to insert the plug, he broke a couple of bones when using a tea tray for a toboggan and once jumped from the top of a tree using a bedsheet as a parachute with painful consequences!
His friends still laugh about the time he went to a Halloween party dressed as a ghost and thought he’d save money by making his own costume from white plastic refuse sacks.
He stood for a while with his back to a log fire then jumped forward when he smelt burning and spent the rest of the evening totally unaware he was displaying his singed bare bottom!
No one’s heard of Benny since he thought he’d fly across the sea without the expense of travelling in an aeroplane.
He was last seen with a bag full of balloons and a cylinder of helium gas heading for the cliffs, and he may have been successful as later that day someone found the empty cylinder lying on the grass.
