Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields hosts a writing challenge called Friday Fictioneers! This writing challenge asks for a story using 100 words or less that goes with the photo prompt. Here is my tale with today’s photo provided by Erin Leary.
“Now class, let’s see what each of you came up with on your mushroom hunt,” said the teacher. “Betsy, let’s see what you found.”
Betsy came forward holding a plastic bag. The class, eager to learn about mushrooms, gathered around.
“Ah,” said the teacher. “These are Liberty Caps, also known as Psilocybe semilanceata. This mushroom is hallucinogenic. These are mature when the cap is flat. In the early stages of formation, the cap is bell shaped with a nipple, or umbo, on top. Some refer to these as Boobies. Betsy, where did you find these?”
Betsy replied, “In the boobie hatch.”
