Sta-mi-na Strug-gl-ing, This is so bor-or-ing, Hope-ful-ly I’ll be done soon…

Be-cause I

Want to go play and be out-doors to-day in-stead of just playing this tune!


Do you know the little tune? Read the words per syllable with the music below. And, for the record, it isn’t the music presented in the image, but the monotony shown in the child’s face is enough to make me want to send the little boy outside for fun!

Here’s a YouTube Video:

From Roger:

The Six Easy Guidelines

  • A photo prompt and an introductory sentence/ topic is to be used as your ‘muse’. They will arrive promptly at midnight each Friday morning.
  • Include the photo prompt and its credits with your story on your blog. Use of the introductory sentence/ topic is optional. Some followers like the introductory sentence ideas.
  • All stories are to be crafted and honed to under 200 words in length.
  • Each flash fiction piece should have a clear beginning, middle, and end. No serial stories. It is harder to stay abreast of a serial story. (Please keep content PG-13.)
  • Post your flash fiction response by clicking on THE BLUE FROG. Follow the given directions.
  • It is the desire of this blog to begin a new writing community. Plan a day to visit the writings of our challengers to enjoy our creations and to provide a little positive feedback.

 Thank you for your participation. I look forward to reading each of your stories. Please remember to check back and follow the journeys of our fellow writers. Kind comments are always appreciated.”

  1. Cute story that goes great with the prompt. I feel sorry for the little fella.
    Living with my grandmother meant learning to play the piano. I was awful! The only musical instrument I can play is the kazoo and I’m rusty on it.

    1. 🙂 Kazoos are highly underrated! We enjoy using them here to hum along with music for fun {and a few theatre productions!}. I tried learning piano when I was a young child, but did not have a piano at home {which made practicing pretty difficult!}; I’m reliving my childhood as an adult accumulating instruments and learning bits here and there 😉 Thanks for stopping by!
