This week’s photo prompt is provided by Louise with The Storyteller’s Abode. Thank you Louise!
Fred and Thomas, the local troublemakers, had been drinking for most of the day when they noticed the unmanned yacht moored at the quayside. Fred turned to Thomas with a sparkle in his eyes. “Fancy a spin?”
Thomas raised an eyebrow. “Can you drive that thing?”
“Pfft! How hard can it be?”
The two boys staggered towards the yacht and then they clambered on board. As they pulled away they both gave squeals of delight. Unfortunately, it didn’t take long for the inevitable to happen. The inexperienced and inebriated sailors somehow managed to drive on shore.
“Run!” Fred cried, panicking.

An inevitable ending! Good story Angie.
Hahahaha! That’s what happens when you are drunk and driving a yacht! Cute story, Angie!
Haha! This story made me chuckle. Good that they drove the boat into the shore than the other way round. Well writte, Angie.
Ah yes – how many regrettable incidents have been preceded by the words, “How hard can it be?” Fun take on the prompt, Angie.
Funny! Hope they learned a lesson. Well done.
Very funny. I can imagine this happening 🙂
I hope they didn’t hurt anyone with their foolishness.
