Going Down

“This has to be the weirdest fast food place I’ve ever seen!”

I wrote this story in answer to the following prompt:
Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by © Dale Rogerson

Going Down!

“Joel, why did the propellers stop?”

“Sorry, Mike. We’re crashing into Montreal.” Joel wrestled the controls trying to stop the plane juddering.

“Oh, crap! The people down there.”

“I know!” Joel forced the plane level. The effort leaving him sweating.

“Bounce on that?” Mike pointed to a giant orange ball in a parking lot.

“What? Hell no! That’s the Julep Kitchen. I’ll need a burger if we survive.”

“How can you think of your stomach N—ahhh!”

The plane nose-dived. Joel bounced it between cars and parked on a sports field

“Nice one, Joel.”

“Cheers, Mike. Now for that burger!”

The End


Thanks for reading my friends.

      1. No. That is all kinds of wrong. There are some made with crispier fries which you might accept. The point is to have the gravy hot so the cheese melts into long strings… but, unfortunately, when the cheese comes straight out of the fridge, this is nary impossible. This makes me laugh as you buy curd cheese off the shelf, where it is room temp but restaurants are obliged to refrigerate it. Oh well. I make my own, then!

      2. That is weird. If its a shelf product then it needn’t be stored in a fridge to this chefs way of thinking. It completely ruins the concept of the dish if the cheese doesn’t melt right doesn’t it.

  1. Oh, that was quite funny! As my navy pilot sweetheart used to say: “Any landing you walk away from is a good one.” Oddly, I live near an airport, and I can see this happening… Rofl!

    1. I think your pilot is correct there!
      I have an airport just on a mile away and an airforce base just a close too. I always wonder if I might get a plane in the courtyard one day!

      Thanks for reading.

      1. At one time, we lived 100 yards from the end of a runaway for the air base…. and, it was right after 9-11, so touch and goes around the clock for 28 days straight… very scary that was… lost every piece of glass we had in the house.

      2. Yes, we lost all our fine china from our Gr. Grandparents, and all of our wedding glass. Our insurance at the time actually covered replacement at 2/3 actual value.

      3. It was more about getting sleep, too. Then, hubby got laid off when his company downsized after losing so many in one of the towers. A very bad time for our country, but we pushed through.
