Button Factory


Today’s Daily Prompt: Write a post about anything you’d like, but be sure to include this sentence somewhere in the final paragraph:

“He tried to hit me with a forklift!”


Joe loves working in the button factory. He gets to make all sort of buttons, big ones, small ones, green, ones, yellow ones, skinny ones, etc. You see Joe has a button collection of his own. He has over 200 buttons and he keeps them all in a wooden box.

One day at work Joe was working on the machine that puts holes in the buttons. He was watching carefully to make sure that the machine was doing its job perfectly. Everything had to perfect, because a button with less than 4 holes was not worthy in Joe’s  opinion. He liked perfect buttons only. Anyway, he was so focused on the machine and the buttons that he wasn’t paying attention to the forklift coming right at him. He almost got hit. He yelled” He tried to hit me with a forklift.” but nobody was around to hear his cry. Not hurt by the forklift Joe just went back to the machine that was putting holes in the buttons and went about his day.
