Truth in Advertising
The seaside market in the old Grecian city would amaze most. Vincent noticed none of it. He felt like arguing.
The sign on the food stall read:
World’s Best Gyros!
Even the Gods eat my food!
“That false advertising!” accused Vincent.
“Is all true!” retorted Damaris, the stall owner.
Vincent crossed his arms. “The Gods eat your food?”
Just then, a glowing man wearing winged shoes and a winged hat, flew in and landed before the stall.
Damaris handed him a bag of 12 gyros. Hermes flew off with a wave.
Damaris raised a questioning eyebrow to Vincent.
Vincent shrugged. “I’ll take two, please.”
Among many other things, Hermes was the Grecian Messenger of the Gods, known for his winged cap and shoes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermes
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers join for a luncheon of Gyros and Sambvca on a Mediterranean island (I WISH!). Nonetheless, we still write flash fiction from photos for frolic and fun. Look here for more stories from some wonderful folks based upon the first pic above: https://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2015/04/29/1-may-2015/
