I wish I'd been right!

Hi, it's me again! This is my hundred-worder for Friday Fictioneers










When I was a child I thought the moon was covered in snow. Well, it is white when it’s bright isn’t it? So I was really disappointed when they went there and it wasn’t.

I thought the man on the moon was a snowman. I thought maybe we’d go there one day for a skiing holiday. They could even hold the Winter Olympics there! And ice cream wouldn’t melt.

But best of all I imagined being there with my friends and bombarding the earth with snowballs!

I still look up and wish I’d been right. But I’m not.... am I?

  1. Yes, you're right. The Apollo missions were all a scam. Armstrong was censured for building an igloo but it was covered up. Makes Watergate look like a playground squabble.

  2. Of course you are right - at least it was exactly the way you mentioned till last week, when I came back! You can always catch a Moon-Beam flight to moon you know ! :)

  7. Dear Rosey,

    And I thought the moon was made of green cheese. Lovely use of the prompt.

    Shalom,

  9. Lovely piece of writing Rosey and a fantastic take on the prompt. I wish the moon was made of snow too, it sounds far more exciting:)

  11. It's a shame that we all have to grow up and lose that childhood imagination. A lovely piece of writing.

  12. What a fun read. Hitting earth with snowballs would be fun--only they would burn up in the atmosphere.

  13. I was going to mention 'green cheese' but I see Rochelle beat me to it. I read it on the internet so it must be true.

  14. I wish you were right, too. That sounds like a lot of fun, Rosey. What a snowball fight that would be! Great, imaginative piece.

  15. A lovely interpretation of the prompt, Rosie. It's a pity the Apollo missions spoiled so many people's ideas about what the moon looks like. Your ideas were much nicer. Skiing holidays and snowball fights up there would be so much fun - and the man in the moon might come out to play! Highly imaginative and very well written. Millie

    1. Maybe the moon landings didn't happen and I was right all along! See you there!

  16. what's wrong in still believing that moon is snow covered, i don't think they ever reached there, they only made us believe that they had reached
