Friday Fictioneers for May 27th 2022

Brenda Cox threw in with the ever-mystical mistress of purple, Rochelle our belle, who took time from the pool to deliver this refreshingly cool love shack photo to inspire one hundred words of well mused Friday Fictionary to charm and warm all readers.

Genre: Twisty Memoir
Title: Escape
Word Count: 100


I walked up to the bar and told my lady, “I’ll have a piña colada, please.”

She smiled and said,

“If you like piña coladas
And gettin’ caught in the rain
If you’re not into yoga
If you have half a brain
If you like makin’ love at midnight
In the dunes on the cape
Then I’m the love that you’ve looked for
Let’s plan our escape.”

I replied, “I never knew. Meet me tomorrow noon, At a bar called O’Malley’s.”

Me and my old lady been on the run since then, never fallen into the same old dull routine.


Look both ways and love the love
of musical tunes and magical lyrics, especially 70s tunes.
Mind the gaps and put a wedge of pineapple with the rum, coconut, coco lopez,
and suck it through a fat straw.

If you’re not familiar with the piña colada song (Escape), here it is with lyrics. Hopefully, this works for everyone. Cheers, y’all.

    1. Thank you, Dale. Some people don’t like the song because of what it implies. I have never understood that, but I cannot take everything literally. In the end, they were happy. 🙂

      1. Entertain me please. 🙂

        I’ve been reading a book called “Film Flam: Essays on Hollywood,” by Larry McMurtry. I have learned much about Hollywood, movies vis-à-vis books and writing. I feel enlightened, but I’ve not completed it yet.
        I feel like I have a much better concept of writing books and movie scripts.
        He calls it his third memoir.

      2. I will let you know.
        We’ve had several discussions about the movie/book quality dichotomy. His view is, of course, as a writer, but his insight into the world of directors (and others) and forming scripts and all of that is interesting.

  3. I’ll add my congratulations and just say that 1966 was also when my husband and I married. Must have been a very good year. Catchy song and I like how you’ve built your story around it.
