So here’s my micro-fiction tale, which sort of leaves you hanging — but you can use your imagination to fill in the rest. 🙂
OFF BOARD ADVENTURE
“Snow board, skateboard, surfboard, water skis, motocross, I’ve done it all – and want to do it all again, just as soon as I’m back on my feet.”
“Well, I’m not as adventurous as you, pal; I prefer to keep my feet – or at least my wheels – on the ground.”
“But life’s an adventure, meant to be lived to the full, right? So I asked myself, why not give hang-gliding a try?”
“For me the biggest risk is never knowing for sure where you might land, what with unpredictable wind currents and all,” Jim said, regarding his long-time friend sympathetically, “and I wouldn’t want to land where you did.”
“Your attention please: visiting hours are now over,” the loudspeaker crackled, ending their conversation.
