Dangling The Carrot #writephoto #carrotranch

For once I’ve merged two prompts; Sue Vincent’s #writephoto and Charli Mills Carrot Ranch.

Sue’s #writephoto is

And this week’s Carrot Ranch is

 March 16, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about carrot cake. It can be classic or unusual. Why is there cake? How does it feature in the story. Go where the prompt leads.

‘One more step, Logan.’

‘This had better be worth it.’

‘Open your eyes.’

‘Morgan, it’s a cave.’

‘No, it’s what you wanted.’

‘Come again?’

‘You said, “Give me something never before see in the history of rock”… Tada!’

‘I meant bringing Lynyrd Skynyrd back to life.’

‘It’s also a cake. Carrot cake. Your favourite.’

‘You made a carrot cake the size of Snowdon? How do you expect me to eat that?’

‘That’s the other surprise. See, Logan, all you classmates from Pratt’s Bottom Primary, including Angela Clummbits.’

‘I will kill you, Morgan.’

‘Just bow out your candles first, Logan.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
