What’s Up with the Doctors?

By Tessa Smeigh

“Ron, did you have to pull Joey out so hard? You pulled his shoulder out of place. ”
“Linda, I had to pull him hard to get him out.”
“You should have waited for the EMT’s to get here. Or maybe the fire marshall could have got him out of there. What is taking the doctors so long?”

**********277 characters************

These tidbits have been continuing from week to week for about a month or more now. 

Rules from Kat:

Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.

    Hopefully the docs can fix the damage! Reminds me of first aid class many years ago when we were told not to move someone who was injured for fear of doing more damage. And to follow all other protocol until the EMT’s arrived.

      Yes you are right. Trying to force a body out of somewhere is something for the professionals to do and not the father who was simply trying to get him out of there before the professionals arrived.
