Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly challenge presented by my old friend Al Forbes.
The idea is to write a short story (200 word max) inspired by what you see in his picture (below).
My first thought today when I saw Al’s creepy image was to go back to bed.
And hide under the covers until the bad thing went away.

Nice and Kneesy
Breaking a bone is a funny thing.
Some are really painful, like a shin.
And such a hassle to heal again, splints, plaster, crutches, a real nuisance.
The radius, in your forearm, not so much, a bit sore then an inconvenience.
Toes too are a major pain, got to watch your footwear, make sure you don’t kick anything.
Fingers, it depends how.
If they are bent back till they snap, ouch!
Collar bones are designed to break, like a trip switch, nature’s way of protecting your neck.
But worst of all is the kneecap.
Absolute agony, probably an operation, and a whole load of time to recuperate.
Yes, I have broken a few of them.
No, not my own, of course!
