Jumper – YeahWrite Microstories #183

“Uh yeah,” said Private Jensen. His parachute landed beside him. “First combat jump. Why?”

Captain Westfield glanced at the silvery shard of metal in Jensen’s hand. “Most skydivers don’t hold the airplane so hard they tear a chunk off when they jump.”


About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

    What color would Private Jensen’s knuckles have been?
    I’m guessing white. Very white.

      Yup. For me, I’m thinking “why jump out of a perfectly good airplane?” I just wouldn’t do it if I could possibly avoid it. Thanks much for the visit, Stacie! 🙂
