a mugging goes awry. entry for Daily Flash Fiction Challenge 6/22.

“Don’t do anything stupid,” The man whined in fright, "I just wanted your money! You don't have to shoot." He dropped his knife.

I looked at my banana and was shocked to find a gun. However, it had happened I was grateful. "You need to consider a career change!” I growled, sounding more self-assured than I was.

The man nodded frantically, “I swear I’ll turn over a new leaf!”

“Get gone!” I motioned with the gun.

He turned and ran. I noticed a large yellow puddle beneath where he had stood. I chuckled and looked down at what had turned back into an overripe banana.
