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 the lady herself.

Delivery Man 2 – The Sequel
Idiot! Moron! Cretin!
The boss is giving it laldy.
Y’see, I was supposed to off this dude.
But I’m there at his gate, finger on trigger, and this wee smiley man comes out, hands me a bowl of ice cream, all different flavours.
It’s hot today, son, he says, wife makes this for the grand-kids.
I couldn’t kill him, could I?
The boss rants on.
Let me draw you a picture, he says, make sure you understand. You shoot him or I shoot you.
No, I think, I’ve got a better idea.
I still have his gun in my pocket.
