She’s back!

Around 200 words for this week’s Sunday Photo Fiction.




zzzzMy friend Rosey took my photo the other day.  Well, she meant to.  It was actually a picture of herself – yet again! 

She struggles with her mobile phone.  She once claimed to be follicly challenged.  She meant to say ‘phonically challenged’ which still didn’t really make sense!

She likes running through the ring tones which can be very irritating.  Consequently, she’s never sure which one she’s using.  The other day it sounded like her doorbell.  When her pizza delivery arrived, she answered her phone.  Then the restaurant rang asking if she still wanted it and she answered the door! 

She was at the theatre.  Waltzing couples filled the stage.  ‘Darling’ said the leading man, ‘You are the belle of the ball’.   Ding-dong went Rosey’s phone.

She was in church.  ‘Hark, the doves of peace’ uttered the priest.  Coo-coo went Rosey’s phone.

She passed an elderly man in the street.  It wolf-whistled. 

Yesterday she collided with a lamppost while texting.  ‘I’m seriously injured’ she complained holding up a broken fingernail.  She’s now campaigning for all posts and pillars to be wrapped in foam.  Best of luck with that Rosey!

Actually, I need to call her.  On second thoughts, I’ll pop round!

    When it comes to cell phones, I’m phonetickly challenged, too. When I click on the camera button, it always shows me myself. Guess I could use it as a mirror. I really sympathize with Rosey for her broken nail. It’s a real pain when you don’t have clippers handy.
    Another well done tale. 🙂

    Tell her at least she is not follicularly challenged, i will bet that will keep her occupied figuring it out for a bit.

    Always enjoy the Rosey stories.

      It usually takes a week or so to work that sort of thing out then she sudden;y yells ‘got it!’
