The Queen has posted a prompt that reminds me of my old days of working in TV. It looks like a piece of equipment on a live shot from a mobile unit. Unfortunately, sometimes the reporters on a live shot become news stories themselves due to the tragic consequences.
We now join Reporter Kelly and Engineer Dan on the scene where Kelly is trapped in the live truck.
“No! Kelly, don’t!”
“I gotta get out of here!”
“That’s just it! A live wire’s tangled in the mast. Truck’s electrified, so are you! Step on the ground you’re DEAD!”
“Dan, that pole’s gonna crash down any second!”
“Listen, put both feet together, jump out, LAND on them together. Then, take TINY baby steps toward me.”
Kelly nodded and jumped. After ten steps, she fell into Dan’s arms as the pole crashed on top of the truck.
Kelly nodded, panting. “The truck. What’ll we do now?”
He shrugged. “We thumb a ride and declare a slow news day.”
