The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
An Early Freeze
Sam bent over to pick up the newspaper, falling on the ice. Lola, a Labrador Retriever, had escaped her back yard again and interpreted Sam’s flailing arms as an invitation to play.
He rose to his feet only to have Lola jump on him from behind, knocking him down. Lola thought this was great fun, this new game of Knock Sam Down. She played it several times before her owner whistled for her return.
Sam tried to get up, discovering his jacket had frozen to the ice patch. This is not how I thought today would go, Sam thought, shivering.

That made me laugh – although I don’t suppose Sam would appreciate the humour of his situation!

Yikes. I hope his neighbor saw his plight and helped him before he froze to death!
Ha ha ha . What fun! I too wrote about being frozen btw 🙂
I do hope he can slide out of his jacket and save himself.
I certainly hope the dog owner comes to help! Jeez! Poor guy!
