#5SF : Goggles

Adam handed me a manila envelope, “Sheila’s running an experiment. I’m supposed to tell her how people react to her picture.” I opened the envelope and pulled out the picture. It was Sheila, wearing nothing but aviator’s goggles and a scarf. It was one hell of a picture, and I know my jaw bounced off the floor, and I stared at it, my eyes big as saucers, as I proclaimed, “Holy Momma, Sweet Jesus, God Almighty!” Adam laughed as he spoke into a tiny recorder, “Another set of eyes turned the same size as your goggles.”


Here’s my weekly attempt at Lillie McFerrin‘s flash fiction challenge, Five Sentence Fiction. This week, the prompt is Festival.

Please, go read all the other entries to this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. It’s amazing what creative people can do with just five sentences.
