Sunday

I wrote this for the July 25th Flash Fiction Challenge



Rita tucked her hair behind her ears, sipped her coffee and turned ‘The Times’ to read below the fold.

Mark,” she asked her husband, “if you could do, or be anything for one day; what would you do or be?”

I don’t know, dear but it would probably involve sex or food. Why?”

I’d want to be queen.”

Queen for a day? Like that old television show?” Mark looked up at her.

Uh huh,” she said, “and, I freed a genie from an old lava lamp at Goodson’s Antique’s yesterday. My day is Sunday.”


The prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the phrase “for one day.” The words single out a special occurrence. What is the emotion and vibe, where does it take place and why? Go where the prompt leads!

    (oh, yes, and I genuinely enjoy your treatment of the prompt. So true to character).
