Remember that boy at the lake?

Here we are again, having fun with Jenny.
The prompt is 'Beam me up Scotty', and it is in blue.
Go on over to Jenny's and read some more fun tales.

Saturday Centus 


"Hey ma! I'm home." yelled the teenage boy as he came slamming through the back door.
No answer.
'She must be sitting around gossiping with her old lady friends again', he thought as he opened the refrigerator door, searching for something to eat.
Nothing.
He stomped up the stairs to his bedroom, opened the door.
"Phew!" 'It smells bad in here, she hasn't cleaned my room! My buds will think i live like a pig!'
Just then he spotted a photo pinned to his pillow.
 A photo of his mom, lottery ticket in hand, holding up a sign that read,

"BEAM ME UP SCOTTY'

Bye.
