The August 28, 2022, prompt at Carrot Ranch Literary Community gave the prompt RED CONVERTIBLE. In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story exploring RED CONVERTIBLE as an emotion or theme. Following is my #99-word-story.
Hittin’ the road, the top down on my 60’s red Roadster “I get around…town to town.” No real place to go, no real time to get there.
Just me, Brian and the Boys, drivin’ fast as I can, radio blastin’ all our favorite songs, “I’m pickin’ up good vibrations.”
Got the wind in my hair, sun on my face, not a care in the world and “warmth of the sun within me tonight.”
Maybe we’ll head on down “Off the Florida Keys there’s a place called Kokomo.” “We’ll have “Fun, Fun, Fun…” livin’ for today, no worries ‘bout tomorrow.
