I think I’m at risk of imploding in a giggle of silliness this week. I’ll try to regain my sanity next week (no promises, though) but for this week all I can do is apologise profusely. Especially to Rich who provided this week’s photo.
For those who don’t know, Friday Fictioneers is a challenge to write a 100 word story from a picture prompt. It’s hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, and anyone can play. Thanks for hosting, Rochelle! Check out the link at the end of my story to see what other fictioneers did with this week’s prompt.
The Seller Reserves The Right To Withdraw This Item From Sale
Rich had another money-making scheme up his sleeve.
‘It’s no good being called Rich, if I’m not actually rich,’ he explained to Rochelle, showing her his eBay page.
‘You can’t sell an airplane on eBay!’ Rochelle exclaimed. ‘It’s not even yours!’
‘Gee,’ Rich said (because he was American and they say stuff like ‘Gee’ all the time). ‘What about the guy who sold the Brooklyn Bridge? You can sell anything if you’re smart.’
Rochelle peered at the screen, ‘Oh Rich, you’ve caught your reflection in the picture again,’ she said. ‘Still, at least you kept your clothes on this time.’
Small print: the characters in this story (Rich, Rochelle and Reflectoporn Man) are entirely figments of the author’s imagination and any resemblance to actual people is purely coincidental. Honest.
