Daily Prompt: Non Sequitur

Write a post about anything you’d like, but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph:

“He tried to hit me with a forklift!”

Photographers, artists, poets: show us a NON SEQUITUR. 

Gerald pressed the starter on his Lamborghini Gallardo and glanced over at his brother, George, in his Ferrari 458. Looking the other side, he looked at their mutual friend, John in his Porsche 918 Spyder. Earlier in the day, the friends cleared the streets making sure no one crossed the roads at the wrong moment, moved in the way or otherwise caused them problems.

All three revved their engines, the thrumming reverberating in each of their chests. Looking ahead, the straight road beckoned to them. Each had their headsets on so they could keep in contact with each other during the race. As a series of pips started to sound in their ears, they each gripped their steering wheels and pressed their accelerators. As the final long pip ended, all three lurched off the start line at the same time wheel spinning as they attempted to find traction. George pulled ahead, but John drew level with him and Gerald brought up the rear by a mere few inches.

Picking up speed, the street became a blur, and the drivers felt the pressure forcing them back. Gerald’s Lamborghini wavered slightly forcing the Ferrari of George to brush the curb slightly. He grimaced as he regained control and sped up again, this time using all the speed at his disposal. The Ferrari launched ahead of the Porsche and Lamborghini before hitting a bump and rolling repeatedly until the doors flew open and the car bounced off the wall.

“Awww come on!” Gerald moaned. “That wasn’t fair.”
John, the youngest at six, said, “Why did you throw your car? You stopped it being fair”
Nine-year-old George crossed his arms, sulking and complained, “Well, he tried to hit me with a forklift!”
The eleven year old held his head up and said, “I told you it’s supposed to be a Lamborghini Gallardo, not a forklift!”
So the friends decided to go and raid the cupboard for snacks.

  1. I like the change in perspective. You’ve done this before… or someone has. Taking the adults to children. A nice twist. And a good way to use a difficult sentence.

    • Thank you. As soon as I saw the sentence, the first thing I thought of was the kids toy. I then thought about kids pushing the toys and how they think about being inside them
