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.

“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.

Here we are again. We’ve gathered at the tables of a virtual sidewalk cafe in Hollywood. We’re here in the movie capital of the U.S. to discuss our original stories for another week. Our hostess for this weekly event is the talented and gracious author and artist Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This is the coming together of the Friday Fictioneer’s group. The challenge is to each write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to include a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. The prompt this week was supplied by our hostess herself, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Thanks again Rochelle.

Mamie Brunfield had been a big, big movie and TV star in the 1950’s. Now in her 80’s, with a great memory, she was going to write her memoir. She had known many men intimately and worked with many stars still alive. Fear in Hollywood was living and breathing.

She hired a ghost writer to come to her spacious mansion perched in the Hollywood hills.

Earnest Dithing was seriously thinking of suing Mamie for slander.

“What did I ever see in the old goat?” he asked his young, shapely blond wife.

“Will I lose my bee-oo-ti-ful diamonds Ernie-wernie?” she whimpered.
