It’s time again, for Kat Myrman’s wonderful challenge, to write a story, inspired by her picture prompt, in 280 characters or fewer.
Here is this week’s prompt and my contribution.
Check out all the fabulously creative entries here and, if you’ve never had a go, why not try a story of your own? You may surprise yourself!

Simon forced his eyelids apart, licked his dry lips, and looked down, with a sigh, at his wallet, now devoid of cash!

If you have to explain a joke, it ceases to be a joke, but I’ll risk that.
In British English:
“Pissed” does not mean “very annoyed”, but it does mean “drunk”.
“Broke” means “having completely run out of money”.
There, one joke ruined, just like the piston!
