February 15: Flash Fiction Challenge – On Ice


February 15, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story on ice. It can be an event on ice, a game on ice or a drink on ice. Go where the prompt leads you.

In February in Australia, it’s hard to find ice lying around. So in order to complete this prompt, I’ve taken myself to the freezer, and I’m sitting in it, on ice as they say. I do have to extricate myself every ten minutes as my delicate bottom isn’t all that excited about being the butt on ice.

Added to that I don’t think my male bits are all that keen either, though you’d think with so much cold shoulder they’ve received over the years they’d be more receptive.

I’m pleased this week to go where the prompt leads me.

    Just think of the frozen bits as being saved for posterity — like cryogenics. Someday, they will be thawed and awed!
    Is butt freeze anything like that jolt from eating an ice cream cone too fast? Brain freeze — isn’t it?

    Thanks for the great laugh, Michael! I had all kinds of potential titles come to mind, but I behaved and kept it to On Ice!
