As I am busy building, breaking, coding and recoding, Gail offered to spot me a post. She offers her version of the Flash in the Pan for the word fire.
The summer semester promised a wealth of interest and fun. She’d be an assistant director to the researcher on the whale watch boats sighting Humpback pods in Cape Cod Bay. The work was fascinating, and her keen interest and people skills made her the most valuable crew member. She acted a liaison with the people watching, and took statistics on the mother whales bringing the young to the side of the boat to show them off. Toward October, however, the winds picked up, and they gave her the added responsibility of counting trash on the side of the boat. She never thought the director would fire her for refusing, but he did. She showed up the next day, and what happened next, was mind-blowing.
The word of the Gail chose is fire, and the word limit for this flash is 125 words. This comes in barely under the buzzer at 124 words. She chose fire as a verb.
Stop by Gail’s World to see what she has going on these days!
