Tuesday is when I tackle some Five Sentence Fiction. Feel free to take Lillie McFerrin’s challenge to write a five sentence story based on a single word prompt. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just used for direction. This week’s word is Business.
The company costume party was in full swing when Drew hit the men’s room; all that beer. A skinny dude lamely dressed as a cowboy—chaps, jeans, boots, aluminum foil covered cardboard spurs, a checkered shirt, leather vest and a 10-gallon hat—was standing at the urinal on the right.
“Hey, what’s shakin’?” said the cowboy peering over the divider at him through a big, thick, fake mustache. Drew frowned and gave a curt nod in reply without looking back; he considered conversation at the urinal while taking care of business to be bad form. When he turned around he stopped in mid zip because the cowboy, who was still there and leaning against the counter putting on her lipstick, stuck out a hand saying, “Howdy pardner, I’m Jennifer from reception.”
