Twittering Tales — Beach Cabanas

159097AD-1FF9-4B6E-96C1-0572E532C8FBMe: What are those little red and white striped huts on the beach?

She: Those are personal beach cabanas.

Me: What are they for?

She: To sit in to get out of the sun, to store things in, to change into bathing suits in, and a place for some privacy.

Me: Privacy?

She winked and smiled.

    🙂 Hmm. Interesting. A Twitter Tales prompt.

    You certainly handled it well, Fandango!

      Thanks. It’s a fun, albeit challenging, prompt when you’re limited to 280 characters. Well, it used to be only 140!

    Good thing there’s only 280 characters, or the challenges of small spaces would continue.
    Which did you find more challenging, 140 or 280 characters?

      140 was harder. It’s really difficult to tell a story with a beginning, a middle, and an end in 140 characters. Just this response to your question has 167 characters.
