AnElephantCant drive a big choo-choo
He is not even allowed to get near a fast train
He wants to be Casey Jones
But he hears all the moans
So he has to once more dauner home in the rain
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Railway Superintendent Rochelle collects the tickets from talented travellers telling tall tales.
And AnElephant is still stationary.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
It is the only way to travel.
Jumping a freight train is more difficult nowadays.
But few things are impossible for a resourceful guy like me.
And the benefits make it worthwhile.
It is cost effective.
It is fast and reliable.
It is better than driving.
You can enjoy the scenery, beautiful in this part of the world.
You don’t get pestered by annoying fellow-passengers.
You don’t have the hassle of security checks.
You have a high level of anonymity.
These last two are crucial to someone with my lifestyle.
Like I say, it is the only way to travel.
