Raewyn of decocraftsdigicrafts invited me to take part in the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. Thanks, Raewyn! The challenge is to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
We cruised the streets. The bass thud thud of the music filled the air, not only inside but outside the vehicle. The champagne flowed. People stopped and stared; some laughing as they saw the fire engine was a hire engine. We had no destination other than places where we would be seen. There was room to dance on board and plenty to eat and drink. We may have had a bit too much when we started fiddling with the buttons. We didn’t know the equipment still worked. The ladder rose. The hoses squirted. The damage wasn’t that great. We wiped out part of the electrical supply to the city and caused only a few broken bones when we aimed the hoses at some fragile people.
I await the court case impatiently. I can stand on tip toes and see the impounded hire engine through the small window of my cell. They told me when they threw me in that bars were unnecessary to prevent escape as they had the window wired with electricity. Not being able to pull myself up to the opening means that I can never see the sun – all because of a bit of fun.
So now I’m supposed to invite someone else to join in the fun. That’s easy, I nominate Priceless Joy from Priceless Joy. No obligation, Priceless Joy!
