Strict Supervision- Friday Fictioneers

His eyes were sparkling when he showed me his bargain.

“Only one is ours and it doesn’t drive -it needs some work,” my husband explained to me cheerfully while I almost had a heart attack.

“It’s old and not drivable?” I managed to ask in absolute disbelieve.

“Don’t worry, I will fix it up in no time,” and he started to make plans right away.

An old vehicle to work on, that had been his dream for as long as I can remember.

There is a little boy in every man and that’s alright, just never send them shopping unsupervised.

Friday Fictioneers is held by my blogging friend Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The goal of the 100-word photo challenge is to make every word count and it’s stunning to see what we all can write and tell with just 100 words.

  1. Yes, we like our toys. Although, I’m not crazy about buying things that need repair. Connie does enough of that for me. Then she says “we” can fix it up. Translated, that means here’s something for you to work on.

  2. Dear Bridget,

    The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.
    One little nitpick…I will fix it up in ‘now’ time…I think you might mean ‘no.’
    As a woman who’s been married to the same ‘boy’ for 45 years, your story resonates with me. Not to mention, my husband likes to shop. It’s like shopping with a little boy. Oh the things that find their way in to our card. 😉 Good one.
