Day at the Dump

Re:Fiction  

It’s interesting to think about the things that we keep and throw away. What if you were reunited with something you had long ago been rid of?

On a trip to drop unwanted items at the dump, a man comes across a personal item from his childhood amidst the trash.

Make the most of this writing prompt:

  • Is the childhood item something he always remembered, or had he completely forgotten about it?
  • Is this a valuable heirloom or an everyday object? Does it have any kind of message written on it?
  • What was the man originally at the dump for? Has something happened in his life to suddenly leave him with unwanted items?
  • Does he take the item or leave it behind?
