Did you miss me, darlings? It’s been terribly hectic, and so I just took a week off.
I’m returning with a bit of banter between the Countess and myself. I could have gone on and on and on, but thanks to the word limit, you are spared such drivel.
Friday Fictioneers is a challenge put forth and moderated by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (the founder of the feast, indeed!) and challenges participants to write 100 words (or so) inspired by a photo which comes from different sources each week. This week’s comes from Jean L. Hays. Find more stories HERE
100 Words of bantery goodness.

“So why do the stupid tuna companies…”
“Uh uh uh,” I interrupted, sparing you all a rant on the idiocy of the average consumer, “You’re out of words, darling.”
