This month’s prompt from Bruce Gargoyle’s Fiction in 50 challenge is… Contradiction in Terms
I must admit I had a lot of difficulty with this. You could call it lack of inspiration, or poor appreciation of figures of speech, or whatever… but eventually I came up with this, not really fiction, but inspired by my nature writing course at the weekend (more of that in coming weeks).
It’s 50 words – as the Fiction in 50 challenge should be 🙂
It’s fresh out today. Typical north Norfolk coast – sun and wind: tee shirt weather for our picnic in the sheltered dunes; fleeces, windproofs and woolly hats for the beach walk.
“Any bread rolls and tomatoes today?” I asked the lady in the village store.
*Sorry,” she replied. “We’re fresh out.”
