Over at the Addicted to Purple blog, Rochelle has challenged us to write a story of ±100 words based on this photograph.

Altitude Adjustment
Genre: Slice of Life
Word Count: 100

We were in line to board a coast-to-coast flight when The Lioness broached the subject. “Our seats are the window and middle one in the row next to the wing.”

“Yes, and?”

“I just wanted to remind you.”

“Thanks for the reminder. Do you have a preference for one or the other?”


“I don’t mind taking the window seat.”

“I plan on sleeping most of the way, anyway.”

“Would you like the window seat so that you can lean against the fuselage?”

“Too noisy.”

“Ok, good. I’ve got a new camera app that I would love to try out.”

    After reading the story I immediately thought “there’s a man who’s been married / with his partner a long time.” 🙂 I enjoyed this window into conversations we may be having a few anniversaries from now. Loved the lioness reference.

    A very diplomatic conversation. I love the combination of story and pictures.

      Thanks for your comment. 47 years of marriage helps to make for diplomatic conversations.
