FRIDAY FICTIONEERS… One Natural Disaster On It’s Way…

The top is off!!!

I told them not to screw with things… would they listen? Nooo… and now there’s no top. There one minute, gone the next!

Would it be so hard, just for once, to have something done right? What are we going to do to explain this one? A landslide won’t work here, and of course floods are out. I guess we’ll have to hurry and pull a Mount Saint Helen’s before the sun gets up to high… and the natives see it’s gone.

This is such a pain in the ass… but we can’t have another panic.

It must be Friday… time for Madison Wood’s Friday Fictioneers, and some 100 Word Flash Fiction!   To see all the stories or to join in and add yours, click here.

 Credit for the Photo Prompt belongs to the Aloha Man, Douglas MacIlroy on the Big Island.  He works at the Keck Observatory on top of Mauna Kea… 13,522 feet above the Hawaiian Sea.  To see another great photo taken from his office and to read a celestial account of his job ➢➢➢http://ironwoodwind.wordpress.com/2012/05/29/just-another-night-at-the-office/
