September 24: Flash Fiction Challenge – Breakfast for Small Boys

September 24, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about snacking. It can feature crunchy snacks or creamy one. Who is snacking on what and why? How can you make this a story? Go where the prompt leads!

It was a difficult situation with three small boys to take to school and neither interested in eating breakfast.

Every offer was greeted with negativity.

I thought I can’t send them off to school without eating something.

I scrounged in the pantry and found an old box of pizza shapes. I poured some into a bowl knowing the youngest would eat anything.

He and his older brother took a few, at least they ate something. The eldest was not interested. He thought I would stop at the shop to buy breakfast; he was not impressed as we drove past.

    Getting young kids to eat before school is a struggle.

    Sometimes the best way to be heard
    is to drive on past, not utter a word…

  3. If they’re hungry they’ll learn to eat what’s on offer. Good move to keep on moving.
