“Do a barrel roll”

It had long been a dream of Ted’s to barrel roll over the edge of Niagara Falls.

He’d never been much of a daredevil per se, yet this act of rebellion had excited him ever since he’d caught a TV Movie of the Week in 1974; The Great Niagara.

It had been done before though, and this was a problem. Ted wasn’t keen on leaving behind a legacy as “the clichéd old fool”.

It was a cold Sunday morning in February when Ted stumbled upon his single greatest idea. Or, to be more precise, Ted tripped over his kitchen chair.

Thanks for the kind words last week, folks. Apologies if I didn’t get to your stories, I’ll make a much bigger effort this week I promise!

    Oh, this was hilarious. A chair… over Niagra… oh, the very definition of ‘idiot in action’. Loved it! 🙂 ❤

    I guess he strapped a barrel to each side of his chair, but forgot to tie off the knots. It seems the chair survived but as for him? A fun take – I enjoyed it.
