Hello world! Today I am writing once again for Sunday Photo Fiction, which is now being hosted by Joe Owens! The task is to write a short story using about 200 words that goes with the photo prompt. Here is my story!
Joe had worked at the mini-mart for years. His task at the mart was to stock the shelves. However, today he got a promotion. He began training on the cash register, and he was taking over the job of writing the saying of the day on the sign outside.
Tina handled the task of the daily sayings for years. She had announced her retirement. Heading home, he was happy to tell his family about the promotion.
“Did Tina tell you how she came up with her daily sayings?” asked his mother.
“No, not really,” replied Joe.
“What are the criteria for these sayings?”
Thinking to himself for a bit, he answered, “I really don’t know.”
“You need to have a new sign for tomorrow, right?”
“Yes,” he replied.
“Do you have any ideas?”
“Nope, not a one,”
“So, then how can you possibly do this job if you have nothing to share?”
“Mom, I really need to think about this! Can we change the subject, pa-leeezze!”
The rest of the evening with his family was quiet. Heading to bed Joe thought about what he was going to do the next day when it came to him.
“Share an idea.”
