Sunday Photo Fiction – September 27th 2015

Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly writing challenge where a photo is used as a prompt for a piece of fiction using around 200 words. The piece doesn’t have to center around exactly what the photo is, it can be just used as a basis for a story.

“Look at that Milton, Freddy is bringing in two more of the Blue Devil Race cars,” Baxter yelled.

“Wow! I can’t believe they did it again, ” said Milton.

“Well, you know how the old saying goes,  ‘monkey see, monkey do’. “

“Sure, but it seems impossible for it to keep happening month after month.”

“Old man Freeman always insisted that his sons have everything alike.  It’s been that way since they were babies.  I guess, subconsciously, they are living up to that madness of his.”

“Sure, but wrecking cars the same color, on the same day, and the same race is what I’d call going overboard on the old man’s tradition.  I don’t care if they are twins, and have always had everything exactly alike, that’s just plain excessive!”

  1. LOL! That is a little excessive but it sounds like it is so ingrained in them by their father they don’t realize they are even doing it. Great story Jessie! I enjoyed reading it and got a chuckle from it. Thank you, as always, for participating in FFfAW challenge!


  2. My sibling was about 18 months older, but I was a big one… they dressed us like twins.
    Easier to deal with having the same thing than to bawl over differences.
    I thought it topped out though at getting the same gifts for the holidays. That kind of, well stunk.

    Fun read. I mashed this prompt with others. 🙂


    • I had the same type situation….I have a sister that is a little less than two years older than me…..for years we were about the same size and shared the same clothes and got things alike. It was great in some ways and not so great in others. I was glad to get past that stage.
