Flash Fiction Challenge – Water Rationing
March 21, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that features a bucket of water.
“This is the third year we suffer from the drought.” The Hubby said.
“The temperature was above 100o Fahrenheit for six weeks, too hot.” The Wife sighed.
“Our city announced water rationing, limits watering the lawn to twice a week, no hosing the driveway.”
“How do we wash our cars?”
“Use buckets of water.”
“How do you wash the top of your SUV? The city doesn’t know if you use the water hose.”
“There must be a way of monitoring.”
“Well, I know. You can still use the water hose, just put a bucket of water by the car.”
