Tuesday Tales July 17th 2012 Prompt Trunk.


What’s in a trunk?  The Marx Brothers hiding on a ship?  Millions of dollars?  Guns being run?

Ping Bodie, backup New York Yankees player in the 1920’s used to say, “I don’t room with Babe Ruth, I room with his trunk.”

Then there is the murder mystery.  We opened up the trunk and a body rolled out.

Trunks can be on Antiques Roadshow.  This trunk was my grandma’s but I am moving to an apartment and need to scale down.

What about the trunk as a time machine.  Who will dig it up in 2112?

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
