Five Sentence Fiction – What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
This week’s word: FRESH
Kara thrust the cup out to her husband, “Come on honey, it’s a smoothie with all your favorite fresh fruits; just one taste.
He stepped back, waving the cup away. “Fruit my ass; I saw that pile of green stuff in the bottom and that slime ain’t crossing these lips,” he said, clamping his mouth closed like a two-year-old refusing medicine.
“I promise it tastes better than it looks and Doc Griffin’s gonna be thrilled when your cholesterol falls outta the heart attack range.”
“I might need a magic bullet,” he’s said through clenched lips, “but that ain’t it; I’ll take my chances.”

I can understand the problem with that smoothie. 😀
Interesting take on the prompt.
Just happen to be a current and ongoing issue I thought most would enjoy. Thank you for your kind comments. I’m glad you enjoyed the post and thanks for stopping by the Cow Pasture. I look forward to more conversation.

Maybe if you’d added a shot of bourbon? 😉 Men. They really are just tall children, aren’t they? Fun use of the prompt.
Thank you, I’m so glad you enjoyed the post. And you’re right about men! It gets worse with age! I hope you will stop by the Cow Pasture again. I look forward to more conversations.
It’s such a challenge to feed your loved ones with things that are good for them…especially the greens! I have a tough time with my son for the same, but I manage to stuff a bit of those in his meals when he’s not noticing 😉 It’s not as easier with grown up men, as we can figure out here 😀
You got that right! I did manage to switch him to turkey instead of beef in the spaghetti sauce, but greens? Forget it. Men are worse than children, I think. LOL Thank you for stopping by the Cow Pasture. I’m glad you enjoyed your visit and I look forward to more conversations.
I know what that green stuff in the smoothie is!
Bitter-gourd, right? Or green-leafy veggies/spinach?
Very good for the health!
I love smoothies 🙂
Have a great year!
Haha! You guessed it. Green leafy veggies abd spinach. My husband hates anything green, typical meat and potatoes man. I love the veggies and smoothies, thus the inspiration for this piece. Thanks for stopping by the Cow Pasture and I look forward to hearing from you more in the future.
