The Boffers strike again

All they were going to have was some good clean fun. That the poor bastard died, they said, was not intentional. A mere accident, they told the police, that the poor bastard died.

Written for trifecta week 19. The task was to write a story using the word ‘clean’ in 33 to 333 words. This one has 33 words.

    Reminds me of the kids who were “couch surfing” … kid was on a couch being towed somehow by a car. I guess they were going pretty fast and he flew off and, well died. On the one hand, sure. Good clean fun. On the other hand … um … really?! Really?!

    Sigh. Great story.

    I liked the repetition of ‘the poor bastard’. Doesn’t somebody always get hurt when the gang goes out looking for good clean fun:)?

  8. Thanks for linking up to Trifecta this week. I love this little story, particularly the structure of it. Also, the phrase ‘the poor bastard’ is perfection here. This is really nice stuff. Glad you joined up. Hope to see you back again soon.
