Step Back Into Time

What if, say a hundred years from now, a child’s field trip goes something like this Trifecta Writing: 33 words Photo Prompt Challenge

trifecta, writing challenge, fiction, 33 word story, flash fiction

Step back into time…a rare exhibit. Student with primitive study tools: textbooks and highlighter marker. Note the obsolete coffeehouse, Starbucks, and no e-books.

DO NOT TAP ON GLASS!

      I agree, TBM…watching things slowly turning obsolete can be hard on some people. my mother for one. she’s strictly old school. no cell phone for her. 😛 thanks!!

    Now that you mention it, the scene does look a bit antiquated! Love the admonition against tapping on the glass!

      [smiling] oh, Otto, you will have many there with you so only very large display windows would do. 😛 thanks for the wonderful comment.

      i’m hoping too, Christine. those bookstores with the little cafe included inside and the neighborhood coffee shops – such wonderful places to visit and hang out in.
      thanks for the lovely comment.

    My nephew’s calligraphy is alarming, and has awful spelling skills. I blame it on the internet. 😀 I don’t really see how hand-writing or reading physical copies of books be obsolete.

      you’re right, Rommel. long ago people had wonderful penmanship when they used to practice with ink bottles and feathered pens. now we have so many easy modern tools – mechanical pencils etc.- it makes you really wonder, when someone hands you something to read and you cannot figure anything out, if we have made any good progress. hopefully your nephew is still a youngster and can learn the skills he needs as an adult. thanks, Rommel!! 🙂
