Alastair’s Photo Fiction – 17 November – The King’s Leftovers

Sunday is the beginning of another weekly invitation from Alastair to open our imagination and tell the world what we see in his photo prompt. There is always several rich stories that flow from this interesting photographic offering. If you fancy a short adventure add your 200 words or less and join the fray.

“This reminds me of that quote from the first Die Hard movie. Do you remember when Hans follows Takagi off the elevator and sees all the Nakatomi Corporation models?”

“Yeah I remember. I also remember the lecture I sat through in my European History class when Professor Sharp spent seventy eight minutes explaining how that quote was incorrect and what the original quote was intended to convey.”

“Seriously?” Dan asked.

“No joke.”

“Whatever. It is just humbling to think so much accomplishment now amounts to simply the contents of a museum display.”

“So I suppose I owe my father a phone call and an apology.”

“Why is that?” Dan asked.

“We had the conversation about stuff meaning nothing when you die and I did not see it. Now it makes sense,” Jake replied.
