This piece was crafted for the 100 Word Story Photo Prompt below. Let me know if I got some giggles with these 100 words.
I read the menu for a second time, but it’s all gibberish: tamarindo, tamale, taco, torta, so many of the foods start with “t” I wonder how anybody tells them apart. Eighty-eight years in Henrico county, and I’ve never once had a Hispanic happy meal.
“Ready?” Olive skin glistens in the bald afternoon heat.
“Don’t rightly know. What do you recommend?”
Pupusas, yes something that doesn’t begin with “T” and I order one, hoping no real pups arrive.
“With frijoles, chorizo, pork or cheese?”
Two out of four of those are English. Well, I hope dollars will be accepted.
