This week’s prompt: … READ THE INSTRUCTIONS! … + 100 words
Sydney stared at his news-printed hands and pant knees. Palms half-way to his lap, he froze. Rising from the floor with a loud sigh, he headed to the kitchen sink. Hands scrubbed, he grit his teeth and pulled on an earlobe, a habit from childhood when trouble brewed. “Dang-blasted contraption.”
The front door slammed and shoes clattered on the hardwood. Mabel’s nose poked around the hallway corner ahead of her. “Easy-peasy, right?” Her chin and smile wobbled.
Red-faced, Sydney held up the extraneous parts, his comb-over slipping.
“It’s a steam mop, not a rocket ship. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!”
When have they made sense?
