Five Sentence Fiction — Learning

Monday 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 Learning.

Here’s my offering:

Today I learned to look before you leap; that there might be rocks below the surface. I learned that sometimes lightening does strike the same spot twice.  I learned what poison ivy looks like and, thankfully, not what it tastes like.  I learned that even Jell-o is not always a reliably edible food. God, I love summer camp.

Got five sentences? Share them!

If you enjoy flash fiction challenges stop by each week to participate in my writing challenge offered every Tuesday. Take your pick from two, yes that’s right, two different prompts that I will be providing right here weekly.
