September 13 – Flash Fiction  – Pasta – Preschool Style

Charli’s prompt this week:

September 13, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes pasta. It can be spagetti, macaroni and cheese, or any variety. It can be a meal or a work of art. Go where the prompt leads.

Pasta – Preschool Style
“Okay, today we are making Mother’s Day gifts for your mummies, grandmas, or aunties.
What I want you to do is take the string in one hand, and pick up a piece of pasta.
Remember, the other day, we painted it?
It’s like a tube, and you can thread the string through it, and make a lovely necklace.
No, David, you can’t eat it.
Penny! Stop strangling Julia with the string!
Peter! Don’t tip the tray upside d-…
Don’t worry Mary, we can pick it all up, stop crying, please…”
The life of a pre-school teacher.

    I love reading your blog and I agree with you that the best pasta brand in India that produces 100% Durum wheat pasta is Gustora.

    Sure you can eat it. String, dip in a pot of boiling water, pull out after 8 minutes and you have pasta on a string.
    Did you say pre school. Oh well.

    A great gift idea also for today, and perhaps the only way teaching kids to become creatives. Well written Ritu! Have a good weekend. Michael
