Dad raised her as a normal kid, loved to rough and tumble but mother had other ideas...

'Be careful on that slide, you might fall off.'

'Get out of that tree, you'll hurt yourself.'

'The lift may break down, let's take the stairs.'

The world became a scary place. Is it any wonder she's afraid.

I wrote this one in my head while I was in the shower. It's where I do my best work. Only had to remove one word. Now, if only I could find a way to take my notebook and pencil in the shower and spend all day in there...I'd be able to finish my novel *giggles*

Flash Fiction - Each Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. If you would like to join in the fun and games... post your story and report to the boss - If you're not interested in contributing a story, feel free to read the other entries. I'm sure any comments you have would be appreciated.
Happy reading and writing!
Love KB

water proof markers and undersea tablets should take care of that one kiddo!

Oh and never be afraid to take a step or have fun.

KB said...

I'll get right on that, hehe.

Alice Audrey said...

She sounds just like my grandmother.

KB said...

Oh yes, many Grans are like that.

Children are born fearless. parents do contribute in making them fearful!

Great 55ve!

NR said...

Sometimes too much love makes life difficult for kids which some parents dont understand......

Lol...strange wonder how u get lines these while your in the shower :)

Marja said...

Great 55 and I am guilty I am sometimes overprotective

I guess a sense of safety is a good idea - to a point. So often we get the balance wrong.
You raise an important issue in this one.

I got yourself a bubble...water proof of course, sit it in the shower stall...go in it with your pen and pad, let the water run down on the cubicle and write to your heart's content!!

Scary too, huh? LOL [okay I couldn't resist that one]

My 55 is now posted. It's not fiction per sé but it's done. Come by if you get a chance. Happy Friday.

Wherever it was composed it rings with truth. WE dragons do our best thinking when we are flying.

Our 55 is up

Head Cookie said...

Hey there KB that would be a scary world if we had to wonder what if on everything or had someone there to tell us that things could harm us for everything we did. Great 55have a great weekend. My 55 is up

Turn the water on so the far end isn't getting wet. Or turn the faucet toward one side. That's all I can think of, sorry!!!

Dr.John said...

It is amazing how they ignore all those parental fears and go right on living.

My 55 is posted

CJ said...

Great post.

We need to remember that children pay attention to what we do and how we react more than to what we say.

This is fabulous!

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh no! That mother sounds like me LOL but I do try to only *think* those things, without saying them. Most of the fun things in life take a degree of fearlessness.

Definitely, invent a waterproof note-taking system for the shower and bath. I know I'd buy it!

G-Man said...

Ahhh...You'd get 'pruny' after a while in the shower Karen..

But I liked your 55 Idea!!!

Have a Kick-Ass Week-End!!...G

Yikes, I grew up with a mum just like that one...have you been visiting my nightmares. lol :)

I often write stuff in my head while under the shower, or driving. Trouble is I am usually so involved in the words or imagery, I don't remember it all when I realize what I'm doing.

KB said...

Thank you all for stopping by :)
