“It’s fog.”

“What do you mean, it is fog? I can see it is fog.”

“You said mist. It isn’t mist, it’s fog. In common parlance, mist implies visibility of more than a kilometre. Less than that it’s fog. And this is fog.”

“I am not stupid, you know!”

“I didn’t say you were. I simply implied that you were mistaken. Get it? Mist taken, hahaha.”

“When I said mist, I was not defining or describing the weather, I was commenting on it.”

“What – missed? How is that a comment on the weather. That just means you didn’t make your target, or you haven’t seen someone for a while.”

“Not missed, mist. Em eye ess tee. Mist.”

“Okay, and I’m saying fog. Eff oh gee. Fog.”

“I think I see where you are going wrong, James.”

“Me? Going wrong? You do know I’m a genius, don’t you? IQ north of 140. I don’t do going wrong.”

“And so when you said mist, you were speaking…”

“Yes. I was speaking in German.”

On to this week’s challenge: Using this photo as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; even just a caption for the photograph. Either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at before 6pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here.

Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries next Monday.

  1. Well done, both of you. I mean, what could go wrong with homemade auto drive system? Keith, great demonstration of what happens when one assumes something. I’m assuming you know that old saying about what it does to you and me. 🙂
