The Drag Race
Tires spinning; burning rubber
Pulling up to the starting line
Revving the engine, purring like a lion
Red, yellow, green
with a squeal and a start the car pounces forward
it’s all about the reaction of the driver
and the acceleration of the finely tuned engine
fourteen seconds; one-fourth of a mile
the engine blows!
My son was racing his Monte Carlo and blew the engine last weekend. I seem to be having a hard time with fiction lately, but it’s a story in 55 words! If you have a 55, go tell G-Man.
