#fridayfictioneers via rochelle – 11/16

First – Apology for  not reading anyone’s stories last week.  I was on a plane for Mexico at about 7am, and I only had time to post mine and head for the airport.


Every Wednesday Ramses Wisoff-Fields posts a picture prompt to challenge writers to create a 100-word story or poem or anything that works for you.  Then post your work on your blog.  additionally, on friday, you go back to her site and post a link to your blog entry in the comments on her Friday Fictioneers post.

I’m going to try to keep up with this, as should you.  Give it a shot.  I prefer to stick to 100 words, but she doesn’t mind either way.  Not everyone has the time to sit and write, revise, edit, revise, edit, etc. until getting it down to 100 and telling everything you want to tell.


Your ABC’s

“Wait.  So AAA is better than AA?”


“Then why three A’s?”

“It’s smaller.”

“Smaller is better?”


“Isn’t 3 better than 2?”

“Not in golf.”

“If AAA is smaller than AA, then is AA smaller than A?”

“There is no A.”

“Why not?”


“Is AA bigger than B?”

“Is no B.”

“Damn.  There a C?”


“Are A’s bigger than C’s?”

“Batteries or boobs?”

“Either one.”

“C is bigger in both.”

“You got D’s?”

“Me personally?  No.”

“Is D bigger than C?”

“Bigger, not necessarily better.”

“What’s the best?”


“I got a prescription for that.”

“Not surprised.”

  1. Hi Rich,
    You’ve got me coming back just to find out my weekly name. Ramses. Nice ring to it.
    Loved the dialogue here. Glad I wasn’t swallowing my coffee at the time. It might have squirted out my nose.

  2. What a great post!

    Now I am tempted to write 100 words about how that battery filled glass could have helped me out when I was a kid at Christmas. Inevitably, I would get a gift that required batteries.


    My brother and I would hang out looking at the gift for a week, which felt like years, waiting for my dad to bring home batteries. What torture!

    Looking back at the 1970’s … I would love to go back and have those types of problems again … along with that glass full of batteries.

    How funny that one picture can bring such memories back.

    Oh, and I think I just wrote 100 words ☺

  3. Great banter. Loved it. And thanks for you comments on mine. Unfortunately my blog doesn’t allow me to reply to replies, so for the fancy literary answer you’ll have to come and visit again.

  4. Missed a lot of Friday Fictioneers, don’t seem to be getting the prompt these days. Glad I searched for the latest one; always like your stories Rich and this one didn’t disappoint – nice humour, still smiling 🙂

    • If you are smiling, then I am smiling. I agree some of the recent picture proms were very difficult to work with. I was faced with a choice of putting up something I was not thrilled with or not putting up anything at all.
