Hump Day Kick Start – Ledge Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

It’s a long way down. What’s going on in today’s prompt? Who is our guy? Why is he on the ledge? Is it just an awesome view? Does he think he’s some kind of god and he’s watching all the insignificant people below as if they were ants? Had he just done something unredeemable that has him contemplating life? Is he playing a cat and mouse game with the law? Could he be a brooding superhero? Is Van Halen being a bad influence?

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

    Well, first of all, I can scarcely even look at this photo.
    I used to be a really monkey… climbing anything and everything — the higher the better. No fear.
    But, by the time I had kids of my own, I suddenly became extremely afraid of heights.
    So my account of Wilbur’s plight will be VERY brief:
    – – –
    “What are you doing out there?” asked Ethel.
    “It’s over. I’m done. Bye,” replied Wilbur, his voice strained and pitched too high.
    “But why? and why NOW?”
    “You wouldn’t understand,” he replied.
    “Try me. What have you got to lose?”
    Wilbur realized she had a point.
    “So tell me. Before you do something stupid. What the heck is going on?” she implored him.
    “My team lost…”
    “That happens every week. What else?”
    “My truck broke…”
    “That happens every month. What else?”
    “My favorite character on Walking Dead got killed.”
    “That happens every season. What else?”
    “Well, my girlfriend dumped me…”
    “You’ve got a girlfriend?”
    Ethel pushed him.
