Flash Fiction #13


“What on earth it that?”

“Oh that’s the grave digger’s car. He is really rather proud of it, well thought out don’t you think?”

“The grave digger’s car? Are you serious?”

“What? You suppose he should drive around in something black with a pile of picks and shovels in his trunk?”

“I get the shovel on the back for digging the hole, but what’s up with the scoop in the front?”

“For shoving the dirt back in afterwards silly”

“Ah, I should have guessed”

“He’s getting on you know, man his age can’t be tossing dirt by hand.”

“Smart man”

  1. Very inventive!


  2. Creative.. I think it’s a great idea


  3. Great take! Again, this weeks’ prompt was a tuffy, but I think you’ve done quite well.


    • Alicia I was actually surprised at how easily this one came to me. I have stumbled and failed to find a story for prompts that seemed to be easy and find great ideas for the tougher ones. Thanks for visiting.


  4. One day he’ll be inserted into the ground by his own invention. Good story.




  5. Most likely Doug, but old grave diggers are stout souls and tend to live to ripe old ages. It will likely be awhile before he needs someone else to inherit his trade and the tools that go with it…


  6. Smart man indeed. Interesting take – I hadn’t thought of the changes actually being useful!

  7. I hope he’s patented that. He’s onto something. They’ll all be wanting one.
