Friday Fictioneers 8/31 – via Madison Woods


When the “FASTEN SEAT BELT” sign lit up Gramps helped him tighten the buckle.

“Are we almost there Gramps”?

“Yes, we’ll be landing soon.  Sit here and keep your seat belt on. I’m going to use the bathroom.”

As soon as Gramps disappeared from sight the plane flew into a wall of clouds.  The plane shook and rocked violently. Suddenly it dropped like it was falling out of the sky.

He was terrified but when Gramps returned he laughed at the bewildered look on his face.

“Are you OK Gramps?”

“Tommy don’t ever try to pee in turbulence!”

  1. Ha Ha. That is a good story. It built it up as if something really horrible was going to happen like a crash or something, but ended on a good note, with ‘gramps’s return. Guess they got through it ok. And yes, that would be a little difficult using the little potty during turbulence. I have too, and makes it rather awkward, if not scarry.

  2. Laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed the fear of the boy and the bewilderment of gramps. Nicely done.

  3. Made me laugh out loud. And you could call me the Passive Voice Nazi this week but one suggestion is the “plane shook and rocked violently.” When you can do it, verbs are much stronger without was. Aside from that…well done. Can only imagine the scene in the tiny lavatory.

  4. I imagine this is one lesson Tommy will remember! Definitely a LOL moment. Enjoyed it immensely.

  5. Ah, the wisdom the old-timers have to pass on to the youth, lol. Laugh out loud, poor grams.

  6. That was hilarious. LOL.

  7. Very funny 😀 Loved it!

  8. Cute. Even though it was only pee, I feel sorry for the next person to use that lavatory. I’m 29 on the list.

  9. Thank goodness this kid has his gramps. They always seem to make things better!

    Great story! 🙂

  10. Loved it! Still chuckling 🙂

  11. Thanks for visiting and following, am following right back. Look forward to lots more stories, have a great day
