Friday Fictioneers: Let’s Party

Many thanks to the wonderful lady, talented artist and writer, and patient friend Rochelle, for herding us cats on Friday Fictioneers. We write micro-stories (fact or fiction) to a new photo each week, provided by some very creative and imaginative compatriots. Here is my story for this week.

This week’s prompt (PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.) provided, and I bet painted, but Rochelle. Click the image and go to her blog to learn all about it.


Happiness Is

The outdoor social party was to welcome new arrivals to the senior center near Seattle. Bill, a newcomer, volunteered to serve special lemon-flavored ice cream.

“This is the best party. Everyone is happy to meet you, Bill,” said Marilyn, the Social Director.

Bill said, “Have some ice cream, Dear, everyone loves it.”

Back at their condo, Yolonda said, “Gawd! I can’t believe you spiked their ice cream. I hope no one finds out.”

Bill removed the bottle of lemon-flavored drops from his pocket. “A little THC never hurt anyone. We’ll need a big bus for next week’s pot shop run.”

Look both ways and share the love.
Mind the gaps and quash old fears.

  1. Hahaha Bill… You troublemaker…

    So funny! Our power went out just as I was responding and I thought for sure this would be gone…

    So, as I was saying, . . you troublemaker of the best sort. I’m thinking there should be “enhanced” ice cream in all the senior centres. It would make their lives a helluva lot less dull, no?

    1. Right. It was not really a senior center. It was limited to 55+. But what a funny experience. it was no trouble at all, and lemon tasted wonderful. 🙂

  2. Dear Bill,

    I’ve had a sense for a while that you’re some kind of instigator. 😉 I’m sure this party climbed to an all time high. Good one. Where are the potato chips and Milky Ways?

  3. Bill, I got a kick out of this story. Definitely one way to liven up the old folks’ home. Why the heck not? I like that Jack Nicholson meme you included also. Brings back memories of him in Easy Rider when they all got stoned around campfire.
