Friday Flash: The Good Mother

Another drabble for Friday flash! It was inspired by this photo from wiki commons.

A bright blue lizard scampered away from her fast-moving heeled legs. She gave it one disapproving look before scowling at the low-slung car in front of her.

A lanky young man exited from it and grinned at her. “Isn’t this place great? Come on, mom, you’ll like it.”

“Insects. Lizards. Birds screaming at ridiculous hours. This is not my idea of fun,” she informed him.

“But I won the dare!” He bounced on his toes. “You have to enjoy yourself. You promised.”

A long drawn out sigh. “So I did. What’s it to be today?”

“Sky diving! Hotdogs for lunch.”
