Here we all are again another week. Today we’re sitting in a virtual garage in a suburban neighborhood. Our hostess for this weekly gathering is the talented and gracious writer and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers group. Our challenge this week and every week is to write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Ted Strutz. Thanks, Ted.
To read the other stories by the group, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.
The link for this week’s stories is as follows:
Genre: Humor Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
THE SOLUTION by P.S. Joshi
“Willy Bancroft”–his wife shouted–“are you ever going to install our new toilet or do I have to call a plumber?”
“But lovey”–Willy whimpered–“I am a plumber.”
The toilet remained in the garage another two weeks. It had occupied that venerable position for three months. Willy always seemed busy–working for others.
“Willy”–Doreen shrieked–“I mean it this time. We need a new toilet. The old one barely flushes. It’s an antique.”
“Sweety”–Willy wheedled–“I’ll do something about it today.”
The potted flowers in the bowl did improve it a little.
Doreen called a plumber.
