Friday Fictioneers

Well, folks, it’s Friday. The entire world is sighing with relief. And dozens of us rise once more to the challenge thrown out by Rochelle for Friday Fictioneers. Read all the stories, 100 words (more or less), HERE. I went with less this week, 95, which is fair since I so often go over. Thanks so much to ย Dale Robinson for the unique photo this week.

ย The Egg

“It be an egg!”


“An EGG!”

“Nowat,” George said.

“Yeah!” Harold insisted. “Wait til you see.”

“Neh,” Gearge said again. “They wouldna build an egg.”

“Mebbe they didn’t build it,” Harold said meaningfully, waggling his eyebrows. He leaned forward, conspiratorial. “Mebbe it come from,” he jerked his head up, “there, you know.”

“Hmmph,” was the derisive answer, with a stream of tobacco juice.

“Ya never know,” Harold folded his arms and sat back. Both men chewed reflectively.

“Ya know,” George said finally, “I alwees said me daughter in law was from outer space.”

  3. Haha, I can just see the two old timers staring at the modern world having this conversation. Nicely done.


  4. ๐Ÿ™‚ We should probably hear what she has to say about him, for a balance to be maintained. Good one.!


  5. Dear Samantha,

    I could just hear these two old buzzards nattering away. Well done. Like Sandra, I’d love to hear what the daughter in law has to say about him.

    That was a hoot indeed… (and it’s Rogerson, not Robinson, by the way ๐Ÿ˜‰ )
    I would definitely love to hear how the daughter-in-law would react to such chatter…


  7. Life Lessons of a Dog Lover

    Great dialogue and a good laugh!
