AnElephantCant be in a movie
Although he has a quite marvellous talent for acting
He is a Hollywood star
Like his cousin Babar
If he does not find cameras and lights so distracting
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Film Magnate Rochelle directs a star-studded screenplay of scribblers to produce some sensational scripts.
And AnElephant tries to avoid a Golden Raspberry.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
The two men sit in Los Angeles Airport, just watching.
They see people arriving and departing, tears of sadness and of joy.
They are particularly interested in the queues at security.
Women carrying their shoes, men with their belts in a tray holding up their trousers with one hand.
It is hot.
Scanners are beeping, hands are patting down large sweaty bodies, tempers are fraying.
This is like a Charlie Chaplin comedy, says one.
Yes, but so necessary, his friend replies.
But the travellers are so impatient, how long will they tolerate this inconvenience?
Until just before our next attack.
