Friday Fictioneers: Insanity

My favorite challenge is Friday Fictioneers by Rochelle Wisoff Fields where we are challenged to write a 100 word story with a beginning, middle and end. Here’s my entry.

Insanity

I told him we could find an easier and softer way of ending our relationship before he smashed me against this wall. I told him when he bought me I was built to serve the likes of Jimmy H., not someone who could not play “May had a little lamb”.

We had a great band: Peter T on synthesizer, Roger D on guitar, and Keith M on Drums.

He realized his life was becoming unmanageable. He was sick and tired of being sick and tired. He had tried one day at a time but it didn’t work. Insanity! Peace!

    1. Thanks! Actually, “One Day at a Time” is a slogan of A.A. There are other references to his problem. “An easier and softer way” for example. No one has caught it yet.

  1. Dear Danny,

    Your story had me off on a wild goose chase learning about John Entwhistle. He could play, so I guess that wasn’t him. Good story, nevertheless.

    Aloha,

    Doug
