Pancake batter keyC’mon, batter batter batter. Ya can’t get no hit with that iron skillet, man. You look like some old Abner double days past his prime who’s lost his key to the game.

The pitcher is ready. Stirring things up it seems, ready to lob a perfect circle of batter at the batter.

Swing…and a miss. Another miss. The fire is getting hot here now.

Batter up…and he hit it. A key hit in this game, folks – he pancaked that batter right over the fence. A key hit for sure, but a lost key now.

Pancakes, anyone?

[For Anita’s Microfiction prompt: Write a 100 word or less story or poem, about the following:
You must find a lost key. Its location has something to do with pancake batter. Tell me why you must find the key and how you achieve your goal.]

NB: I may have stretched the rules a bit. That’s what makes this so fun.
