One hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers





I can see everything from up here.  I can see you!

I sit among the clouds.  White ones are the most comfortable, soft and fluffy.  Grey ones aren’t so good, I get a damp bottom, but it’s worthwhile. 

You’d be amazed what I saw happening on the beach yesterday, my binoculars steamed up!  As for the goings-on behind beach hut twenty-two, words fail me. I had to pop my eyes back!

I bet you’re wondering if I saw what you did the other day. Don’t worry, your secret’s safe. 

And if you believe any of that twaddle …. you’re sillier than me!

    Dear Keith,

    A little silliness never hurts anything, does it? Laughter is a great antidepressant. Always fun to hear you read.

    I am only willing to be as silly as you, nor more, no less. Well done, Keith.

    You just made Care Bears creepy (they watch from the clouds). Enjoyed this.

    What an endearing story. Drone voyeurism is easier than ever these days. Last summer I met one of my sons for lunch where he works. We pulled out the bag chairs and sat on the lawn at the edge of the parking lot and ate our sandwiches. As we were talking I noticed a whirring noise and looked up. About 20 feet in the air a drone was hovering, watching, and maybe listening.

      It wasn’t me, I promise! We are being constantly watched these days and drones are the latest devices to intrude on our privacy. Thanks, Lisa.

        Keith, in your story, I was imagining the cloudwatcher as a magical being rather than a drone, but then I wouldn’t have been able to share my drone story 😉

    Yikes! Excuse me while I go close the curtains. Not that I’m doing anything untoward, mind…

    Ha! And it reminds me of a child I knew who’d gotten binoculars for his birthday, and discovered that neighbors’ windows are more … um … immediately informative … than stars …

    That’s exactly why I only go outside on clear days. That was a fun one.

    Imaginative take on the prompt, Keith. The last time I went to St Ives in Cornwall somebody was flying a drone over the beach. There was no hanky-panky, though – far too many people!

    This made me smile, which at the present time is extra valuable.

      Thanks so much for dropping by, Michael. I do hope things are improving for you.

    When I think about loved ones who have died I often wonder if they are “with me”, you know keeping an eye out for me, listening to me. But then you think, wait! I don’t know if I want everyone having this open window to everything I do! Lol. Its tricky!

    Thank you for making me laugh – and now I’m wondering what I could see if I could hover unseen in the clouds for a while. Plenty of material for creative writing, I bet.

    Beach Hut 22, now that’s oddly specific. Fortunately, I have no idea what you’re talking about. 😉 Fun story, well told!
