The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Ready to Retro
The Halloween party theme was As Retro As You Can Go. In the attic, Kevin found some stuff he’d worn in college. He cleaned up his shoes as the shorts and an Eric Clapton concert t-shirt were in the wash. He fondly remembered wearing them as his nonconformist uniform.
At the party, he went to the backyard where he found a group of men dressed exactly like him: scuffed shoes (no socks), plaid shorts, ragged concert t-shirts. They looked like sartorial clones. So much for being nonconformist, Kevin sighed, as he crossed the deck to be assimilated into the pod.
