The Kookiness of Kids – #AtoZChallenge #BlogchatterA2Z

“It was a dragon Mommy, breathing fire. Wherever he went, things started melting. The blades of the fan crumpled, the paint peeled away…”

“Are you quite finished, young man?”

“You don’t understand Mommy. I HAD to turn on the hose-pipe, and attack him with water.”

“Full marks for creativity Timothy, but you DID destroy the house in my absence. Two weeks detention.”

“Maybe it was a good thing,” Timothy thought to himself as he trudged back to his room,”that I didn’t tell Mommy about the eggs that the dragon had dropped in her bathtub when I hit it with water.”


100 words.

Written as a part of the Friday Fictioneers challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The objective is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt given above. This week’s photo has been contributed by Yarnspinnerr. To read many more stories based on this week’s prompt, visit HERE.

This is also my submission for the #AtoZChallenge and #BlogchatterA2Z. Today’s alphabet is K, which, in my story, stands for Kids, as well as Kookiness 🙂

    Loved the eggs in the bath! Made me smile all over my face! And we still don’t know whether or not the dragon was imaginary…

    Parents have a way of seeing through the most creative of excuses. Especially when there are dragons involved!

  12. Dale says:

    2 weeks detention? That’s all for destroying the house? Lordy, what will she do when she finds the egg?. Fun story, Anurag.

  13. I like it that she gave Timothy marks for creativity. Perhaps he’ll become an author someday.

  14. You captured the relationship perfectly!

  15. Timothy either has a vivid imagination or there’s more trouble brewing! Excellent.

    A-Z of My Friend Rosey!

  16. Oh no! Naughty child. That was fun to read. 🙂

    I love this. Mum will be delighted when she finds the eggs, I’m sure.

  22. Dear Anurag,

    I’d say his mom has a sense of humor. But will she still think he’s creative when she finds the eggs in the bathtub? Perhaps they’ll hatch. 😉 Cute story.



  23. granonine says:

    Put me in mind of Calvin and Hobbes–creative child who drove his poor mom to distraction 🙂

    By any chance were they green eggs. And was there ham?
