Thursday Inspiration — On the Brighter Side

“I bought the place because I want to keep it simple. I want to create a Bed & Breakfast that would offer real country comfort, you know what I’m saying?” Ted said.

“That sounds nice,” Ted’s cousin Mike said. “Do you believe you have the talent, though, to pull it off?”

“At the risk of sounding bellicose,” Ted said, “I will stop at nothing to pull it off.”

“Interesting,” Mike said. “By the way, I looked at the town inspection report on the property and there are some flagrant code violations, including a leak in the septic system that could be harmful to the ground water.”

“Yeah, yeah, that’s going to be a major expense,” Ted admitted, “but on the brighter side, once all of those code violations are resolved, I’m going to have the best B&B in the state.”

Written for Jim Adams’ Thursday Inspiration prompt, where the word “brighter,” and the image above, are the prompts. Also for these daily prompts: The Daily Spur (simple), Ragtag Daily Prompt (country comfort), Word of the Day Challenge (talent), Your Daily Word Prompt (bellicose), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (flagrant), and MMA Storytime (harmful).

    I think a B&B is a risky business, but it must be nice to work at home.

      It is nice to work from home. I did it for years before I retired, but I didn’t run a B&B. I just telecommuted.

    I would think running a B&B would take lots of work! Good story though!
