Weekly Writing Challenge: A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words

It’s the turn of the century and the economy is booming, except for rural Connecticut. Roy jones, the father of two loving children Jack and Mary, is headed off to the post office. His wife Suzanne takes a picture to remember the blissful evening. Suzanne is more of an optimist than Roy. Roy works hard for his money and sees life as a constant competition. Always looking for new ways to prosper and never really enjoying his current blessings. Their lives are full of nightly news while eating TV dinners’, Saturday walks to the post office and occasional visits to the town’s church on Sunday. Their lives are what many of us would call normal maybe even boring. Except for one thing, Roy isn’t who he says he is. In fact Roy is actually James McGorwin undercover CIA agent. Why is the CIA in Connecticut? Why is Roy living a double life? Does Suzanne know his real name and chosen career path? We may never know…

This is a story worth telling just not for me to tell. I hope you enjoyed my take on this week’s writing challenge. Tune in next week for more funny posts.

  2. See, here’s the thing, When I saw that photo I thought, there’s something wrong, sinister even. None of them are smiling and the little boy has moved away from his ‘dad’. You’re obviously in on the secret, fess up, Roy / James is not CIA.
