Sara Y El Mono Del Vuelo

I’m back in Nevada after spending six weeks in Spain. I promise to share my thoughts about this grand adventure of Spanish immersion in later posts but today is miércoles so here is my Friday Fictioneers post. I haven’t written anything but text messages in English for six weeks and my brain was a little rusty today. My fictional bumbling spy Sara stepped up to the castle and insisted that this was her day to write.

Hold on to your broom and enjoy the ride.

Here’s the photo prompt from Douglas Macellroy.

Sara and The Flying Monkey

Unclear as to where she had fallen, Sara stretched her stocking clad legs gingerly beneath the rubble and questioned her choice of disguise.  How was she to know that her pointed hat would bring down the drone in a tangle of fabric and smoke? In her defense the team leader had said, “We will get that witch”, speaking of the intended target.

The flying monkey drone had been Sara’s brilliant idea but where was the memory stick? Shaking off the very minor concussion she opened one eye.  Regretting the decision, she watched the armed guard drop the Usb drive and Sara’s last chance into his pocket.

  2. Señora Doctora — ¡Que chiste es esta historia! La me gusta, especialmente que haces la referencia (mas o menos) a mi estado — el estado de Kansas. Entonces, espero que disfrutaste tu tiempo en España con los, <> ¡Ji ji ji ji!

    Glad to see you back and I enjoyed the story so much (in case you couldn’t understand it).

    Five out of five patatas bravas. 😀

  3. Oh I did enjoy your story… I might dream of flying monkeys tonight, but it’s not a promise.

  4. I saw the striped legs but I didn’t see the Monkey Drones so I went towards a different movie. I think your brain is derusting nicely, and we’re glad you’re back home to enjoy American politics at their best!

  5. Wow! that was certainly a different take. The last time this prompt was out I didn’t see the striped stockings under the cushions. Good one! Bienvenido de nuevo! (You’re going to get a lot of this spanish banter… some good, some not so good – like mine.) 🙂

  7. Like Perry, the striped legs caught my eye and I was pretty much a goner after that. After reading the story all I can say is, “Lions and tigers and bears, Oh my!”

  10. No es posible a no gustar patatas bravas! He vivido en Tenerife durante 16 anos y las comi muchas veces.
    Wish I had the legs to wear those tights!

    • I like my version of patatas braves without mayo. I didn’t realize that you were in Tenerife. You are back in England now? Thanks for commenting, Liz. I love your posts but I struggle with commenting with the interface. Mostly being lazy I admit.
