A Bowl of Soup

Daily Prompt: An Odd Trio
Today, you can write about whatever you what — but your post must include, in whatever role you see fit, a cat, a bowl of soup, and a beach towel.


Chris had taken (for a few days) a cottage on a beach. He wanted a respite from his daily grind at work. Someone had recommended this place. With anticipation of enjoying his leisure hours, he spread his towel with the cat motif, on the deserted beach. No one was in sight, except for an odd sea gull flying far out to sea.

He sat down to have his bowl of soup. Oh Hell! He had forgotten to bring out a spoon. He put the bowl on the towel and went inside the cottage. He must have spent a minute or two, but a stray dog had been quicker than him. He was lapping up the soup.

There went Chris’s efforts … …… He sighed, and went inside again to heat another bowl of soup for himself.
