Writers' Showcase

“What’s in your pocket, Andrew?”

“A frog.”

“What you gonna doing with it?”

“Not sure yet.”

Andrew looked down at the grass and took off over the fence into his parents’ backyard. The door was open leading into the kitchen and Andrew could see that his father had just set up the barbecue grill. All the coals were piled up in a giant pyramid on the center of the grill.

The window was open and he could hear his parents clearly.

“What ya cookin’ hun?” his mother asked.

“Not sure yet,” his father said.

Andrew smiled. He loved Saturdays.
