Day at the Dump

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?
