Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Roger Bultot.

One potato, two potato…
Remember when we were kids, this is how we made decisions?
For good things, like who got first bite of the stolen pie.
For bad things, like who took the blame for the broken window.
There was always one kid who took charge of the count.
Who always won.
Who never lost.
I bet you were that kid.
Because you always get your own way.
We go shopping when I want to watch rugby.
We go skating when I’d rather ski.
I can see you’re still counting.
Planning to leave me on the shelf.
