Friday Fictioneer: The Sniff
“A collection of bottles,” his aunt said.
“What’s in them?” he asked.
“Nothing you would be interested in,” she said.
But when his aunt wasn’t looking, Bobby opened a slender yellow jar and took a big sniff. “Yuck.” He caped and replaced the bottle.
Later that afternoon, every woman and girl at the park became suddenly overly interested in Bobby.
He concluded that this had to do with something that was in the bottle he’d sniffed. His aunt was right, there was nothing in those bottles a ten-year old boy was interested in.
