The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Everything In Its Place
“Why are you saving those? Didn’t you replace them because they were dead?”
“They still have a little power left. Maybe they will be good for something else.”
“Stop! Don’t put them back in the container with the new ones. That’s not where they belong.”
“I’m not getting rid of them!”
Susie sighed, knowing she could never convince Don to get rid of the dead batteries. She decided on the next best thing: a place of their own. She gave him a jar to store the batteries in and let him fill it to his heart’s content. Everyone was happy.

Note: I’d like to say that this is fiction, but at my house, this is a true story. I didn’t think about the jar idea until seeing the photo prompt, so now it’s on my shopping list. Everyone will be happy!
