Finders Keepers

This 100 word little story is built around the picture below.   To read other offerings, just click here.

“But why can’t I?” I whined.
“Because I SAID SO!”
“But…I found it!”
 “I SAID NO!” he roared even louder.
 “But Dad.  Can’t I play with it just once?”
 “But Dad.  Can't I just throw it once?”
He gave a sigh so giant it seemed to move the Universe.  He counted to ten.
“Son.   You can’t play with the Earth.  I know it’s hard to believe, but there are tiny little people living there and we need to respect them.”
Tiny little people?   I peered closely.

I think my Dad was teasing me again.

Lovely story. I can envision this conversation. Do you think that's what causes our earthquakes?

Jenny I felt like I was the child holding the whole world. Great story and I love how you twisted in the end with tiny people. As the child tried peering to see them.
