Friday Fictioneers



‘I wonder what’s buried there,’ thought Cliff. ‘Haven’t seen Sue for a while…oh no, she’s on holiday. Probably someone’s pet. People love walking dogs along the canal. Maybe a treasure chest! Argh! Just because I’ve never seen a pirate ship cruise by doesn’t mean they don’t. Actually, I did see a barge flying a jolly roger the other day! Could be gold down there. I wonder. I’m popping home to get my spade’.

‘Dig-dig-dig. Nothing so far. Did-dig-dig. Hard work, this. Dig-dig-dig. I’ll be in Australia soon! Dig-dig…whoops…woo…help…!’


‘I wonder what’s buried there’ thought George. ‘Haven’t seen Cliff for a while …’

    How many are going to end up there before the council manages to put a ‘no digging’ sign up? Good chuckle as always Keith.

    Just goes to show, “What goes around comes around.” Or is it “What goes around must come down”? I haven’t seen that maxim for awhile… 😉

    Why in heaven’s name would anyone want to dig in some unknown place like that? See where it got him!!

    What happened to Cliff? He was digging alright, did he die or was he killed?

    He failed to adhere to the 11th commandment, when in a hole, stop digging. Nice humorous piece, Keith

      Not to be recommended. I live by a beach with quicksand and I’m always amazed at how many people ignore the warning signs

    Dear Keith,

    I loved the way the first and last lines brought your story full circle. Left me wondering what happened to both of them. Well done.
