My category ‘Pictures & Stories’ are posts with me writing a fictional, creative short story about a picture.
Spatula Man –
The man, the spatula; what was being hidden from the world?
It was another ordinary football game, just another event, all were there ready for the eats. They were waiting for him to finish the burgers and hotdogs as the big game was taking place. It is the third quarter and 3rd down and 12. What was the next play going to be? A pass seemed to be the obvious choice, but could it be a different play instead?
But wait the burgers and hotdogs; when was spatula man going to be finish? As the crowd grew louder in anticipation of the play so did the hungry people surrounding spatula man. The play begins and spatula man turns around raises his metal spatula and motions to the crowd, what comes next will go down in the history books.
The play turns into a run, and the quarterback runs 60 yards for the touchdown and the team explodes with cheers as the crowd noise is overwhelming the stadium. But what about spatula man, what happen, what would become of him?
That day in history as spatula man turned and motioned to the crowd, the picture was taken and his life changed forever. He became known as the greatest living hunk of all time and starred in countless movies and won countless awards and retired in his later years living in an RV and traveling and exploring.
