I wrote this for this week’s Friday Fictioneers led by Rochelle A 100 word (or so) story based on the photo prompt below. Come join us!
Buck spent a long time designing a skeleton bust of Bacchus. Then, a group of us met several nights a week for weeks putting a paper mache personality onto the party god. We festooned a Ford flatbed with LED lights. By the time the bust was put on the flatbed, we had created a temple.
I costumed with pink foam rubber curlers in my hair and fuzzy bunny slippers on my feet. “Sissy, you deserve a costume award for looking so beautiful in those slippers,” Buck teased.
That Mardi Gras, we drove through the streets throwing beads we’d hung from the crown of Bacchus.
