April 5 – Flash Fiction  – Sun Silly Preschoolers!

Charli’s prompt this week:

April 5, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a silly sun story. Up north, “sun silly” is the energetic and playful response to returning sunlight. It could also be an April Fool’s jest, a silly story, or a reaction to spring fever. Be silly and write playfully! Go where the prompt leads.

Just got in by the skin of my teeth, what with my little break, but here you are!

Sun Silly Preschoolers!
Billy hung precariously from the climbing frame.
Jane was running round and round the playground like a crazed lunatic.
Another group were taking great pleasure in pulling the flowers off the line of shrubs in the planter.
And there was more…
Mrs Jackson sighed.
She’d heard of the full moon doing something to the children’s behaviour in school. Not just heard, but experienced many times over the years.
But after a long winter and delayed spring, this was the first time she had seen the effect of the long awaited sun on her charges – truly sun silly, they were!

    Lovely, Ritu. I hope this is not written from experience.

    Sounds like madness occurs when there is either a full moon or sun sillies. It would be such fun to watch, possibly a little more difficult to teach.

    Watched a news story last night of our local schoolkids complaining about the late spring, yet climbing and running and sliding down slides in their snowgear and boots! They’ve got this!

    The kids get that spring fever and tend to be a lot squirrely (more than usual).
