Friday Fictioneers: Insanity   21 comments

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

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!

  4. Dear Danny,

    RIP John Entwistle, although it could hardly be said that he couldn’t play. You made me Google for details. Nice one.

    shalom,

  5. 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,

  6. Like Janet, I switched gears at the second sentence, and read on with a fresh understanding. Perhaps *Doctor* Who could have fixed it with his sonic screwdriver?! 😉

  9. Your opening line had me thinking of abuse (of a woman),then you switched gears. Hopefully he’ll have peace now.
