The little boy’s parents gasped while he cried out; the birthday surprise was morphing into a nightmare.
The hovering helicopter wobbled drunkenly before nosediving.
Screams sounded out at once.
The father picked up the toy helicopter and, after a brief check, announced “It’s OK!”
I’m exceptionally bad at controlling electronics, which is why I don’t have remote cars or helicopters. That and the fact that our family is an average family who just managed about to settle our monthly bills and expenses.
I also don’t understand the fascination of other boys my age in cars and drones. My male friends have offered to let me to drive their cars in an attempt to “teach” me how to drive. It’s probably illegal as I don’t have a driving licence but they were excited to “cure” me of my apathy toward cars. On second thoughts, maybe I should not have said this on a public blog.
Well, long story short, we didn’t crash but let’s just say it didn’t go well – my friends would rather go on roller coaster rides and that’s saying something, since they are all not fans of rides.
For some reason, they never offered to let me fly their drones.

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. This is important as I have noticed that some of the ping backs have not been working. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.
