99 Word Flash: July 22, 2015

On July 22, 2015, Charli Mills (@Charli_Mills) prompted us thus:

In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that has a shift in perspective. It can be a transition of one character or a change between character points of view.

Here is what I came up with:

That’s Not What I Said

Seagulls calling and piers begging for attention, San Francisco would prove itself a fun day with the wife.

Approximately 10:30 am, I sensed my energy-meter plummeting, and I needed wings: Red Bull.

“I’m going for a Red Bull,” I hollered to Erin who prepared for our concrete adventure.

Almost ready, I waited…

Sluggishly trailing Erin’s lead for a Red Bull, or so I thought; Erin stopped in front of Boudin Bakery.

We hadn’t discussed lunch. “Why did you stop here?” I asked.

“I thought you wanted a bread bowl,” she responded as if I lost my mind.

We laughed…

    Ha, ha! Oh, yes, you’ve aptly captured that difference in perspective between couples that can sometimes be called, “selective hearing.” 😀 Great take on the flash!
