Pillow Fort


PHOTO PROMPT © Douglas M. MacIlroy

“Did you see Margret has a pillow fort in the living room?  Hehehe. I used to do that all the time.”

“Yeah, like the one you built last week.”

“Smarty.  Well, I’m going to invade her fort.”

“Didn’t you get that monstrosity from your eccentric Uncle Ed?”

“Yep.  Here, help me put it on.”

“I like the Darth Vader breathing.”

“Uhm, I can’t breath.  Oh well, here goes.  Earthling!  You cannot hide!”

“Daddy, why are you using a sea helmet to pretend you’re from space?”

“Yeah, well.  Darn.  Can you help me get it off?”

“It’s stuck.  Cool helmet, though.”

    Funny story, Trent. It sounds as though the daughter wants to make sure that’s really her dad. It’s a bit like Little Red Riding Hood only that didn’t turn out well. I hope his wife can help with the helmet. Well done. :) — Suzanne

      Thanks! Maybe she is just checking to be sure in a way to make it sound like she’s not afraid, but looking at the other stories I wrote with this pair, I think she is always one step in front of him.Once he sits down his wife should be able to pull the helmet straight up to get it off. If not, well, I guess the people in the local Emergency Room will get a laugh….

      Thanks. No, kids today think they’re “hip and sophisticated”, even when they’re still at a pretty tender age. I think it would actually be pretty difficult to get stuck in one of those diving helmets, so I assume as soon as his wife got over her laughter she was able to lift it off.
