A Rosey moment…

for Friday Fictioneers



zzzzMy friend Rosey was rushing to the railway station when she somehow snagged her skirt on a rose bush and ripped a little hole in it.   Once on the train, she delved into her voluminous bag and produced a needle and thread from her emergency kit.

Just as she started stitching a fanciable young man sat in the next seat and needless to say, Rosey immediately struck up a conversation.

By the time they reached their destination, they’d had become attached – literally.  Somehow, Rosey had sewn her skirt to his jacket!

Of course, she claims it was an accident – I’m not so sure.





Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Jean L Hays for the picture.

Prod the frog to see what’s going on!

    Dear Keith,

    Obviously, Rosey is one who keeps a person in stitches. 😀 Charming story.

    Yep, an “accident”, wink, wink, nudge nudge…

    I was sure she was going to stick him with the needle… at least this way there may be a future for them 🙂

      You are probably right Susan! She is accident prone but this time I think not.

    Haha! If reaching for her sewing kit was her first inclination, this was NO accident … 😉
    As for Froggie — I’m sending a bandaid. Unless he’s a she, and she’s gonna fall asleep for 100 years, and needs a prince (in frog form or not …) 😉

    Smart girl, Rosey. I hope they stay stitched together, since their meeting was so providential 🙂

    Somehow I knew they would end up stitched together… I would have assumed his shirt to her skirt but hey…

    Teehee! I was glad when I saw Rosey in the title, and she didn’t disappoint! By now, she must be very fluent in her excuses for the mishaps that happen so frequently…

      Oh yes! An excuse for every event and it’s never her fault of course! Cheers Penny.

    No accident, but truly an original means of getting to know someone. Nicely done.

    Rosey is one resourceful lady. She not only carries everything that is needed in routine life with her, she also does not let go of anything that she thinks may be of use later.

      So right, everything from a a broken fingernail to a punctured tyre is catered for in her emergency kit!

    Rosey is so personable. I do think she stitched herself to the young man on purpose, but only Rosey knows. She’s quite the character!

    Very clever of her! I love this story – I bet they will laugh at this into their old age. I love it!
