Poor old Harold became quite verklempt when he discovered that someone had stolen all of his hard-earned, glorious badges that he’d earned when he was in the scouts. The distance of years from his scouting days hadn’t diminished the pride he felt from having been awarded those badges for being adroit at the requisite skills.
If he were ever to recover those badges, this was not the time to procrastinate. But what choice did he have? The pandemic was still out-of-control and everyone was in isolation due to the mandated, state-wide stay at home orders.
Written for the Tale Weaver prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie, where the prompt is “badges.” Also for these daily prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (verklempt), Your Daily Word prompt (glorious), The Daily Spur (distance), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (adroit), Ragtag Daily Prompt (procrastinate), and MMA Storytime (isolation).
