Breaking News

The world of medicine is in disarray after the charity BBA presented its latest research suggesting that ball-blindness, a malicious and debilitating disease that brings misery to countless first-world children, also indirectly affects parents who want to see their offspring become high-earning child-prodigy sports stars.

The charity says that since it was found that the use of dogs to support sufferers was shown to be contra-indicative, society has a duty to find new ways to prevent and cure this condition.

The BBA funds research into both areas. Concerned citizens can donate £10 to support the Association’s activities by texting SUCCOUR to 709965.

One hundred words or so written in response to the visual prompt at Rochelle Wishoff-Fields’ Friday Fictioneers.

    I’ll set up a post office box for the donations. We can have this, especially in 1st world countries.

  5. Find a cure quick. Suffers tend to become depressed if not cured. 🙂 good story.

  6. Ball Blindness? So that’s what I had all those years I sucked at sports! Wish I’d had that excuse years ago but thanks for it now, Partrick.

    Good one! Very funny 🙂 🙂

  8. Ha.. yes that ball-blindness is devastating… it can make it necessary for kids to become awful things like engineers or doctors… shudder… we need more sport-stars

  9. Dear Patrick,

    I wonder if this is akin to that dastardly American childhood disease Affluenza.

    Great story…subtly sad and funny at the same time.
