Today's #flashfiction Quincy The Carpenter

 “Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.”
Oscar The Grouch* #quote

I think they should make an un-reality show. It'd be just a blank screen. Anyway onto the flash fiction!

Quincy The Carpenter

         Quincy's muscles were tough, aged to a rugged strength through years of hard work. Many times he replaced his tools because of rust, not breakage. He crafted beautiful furniture with intricate patterns or rush jobs with the bare minimum while brown dust flew onto his skin.

       Quincy also had no need for tiny workshop he used. Or to make the works that he did. Long ago he used to make a living off his work, but through lucky investments became a billionaire later in life. But that didn't change how he viewed things. He loved to work. Until the day he died Quincy was a carpenter, making his craft as he always had, while the world expected him to retire.
