A hundred words…

for Friday Fictioneers



ca. 2002 --- Woman Against Red Background --- Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis“I’ve got a new window,” said my friend Rosey.

“Really, where?” I asked.

“In a wall,” she said.

“Obviously,” I said, “you’d hardly have one in the floor”

“Actually, that could be fun!” she chuckled.

“Rosey, where’s the window?”

“Oh, between the bedroom and living room”. 


“Well, I was hammering a picture hook in the wall and I banged too hard and a window appeared”.

“A hole you mean,” I said.

“Well, it is now, but when you’ve neatened it up it’ll be a window and I’ll be able to watch telly from my beddy!”

Looks like I’ve got a job.

    LOL! Froggy doesn’t look too happy. I guess Froggy’s name isn’t Rosey … 😉
    This was a lot of fun. Now … perhaps I should make a ‘window’ in the wall between my bedroom and living room …? Nah, perhaps not … I don’t think it would be much appreciated, anyhow … 😉

    I always did admire women who are handy with tools. Think what Rosie might accomplish if you gave her a cordless drill for Christmas!
    The only kind of wood I know how to work with is a pencil.

    Don’t tell her about skylights, Keith, you are too old to be up on the roof!

    Fun Keith. Last time I took a hammer to a wall it was a sledge hammer and just one blow took the whole lot out. I should hasten to add that it was meant to!!

    Heeheehee! Yep, it’s going to be a job, and while you are at it, you might want to hang up any more pictures she has, save yourself another such trip.

    Ah, Rosey – she is forever the optimist. She is correct, a window is a kind of hole. (Cut her pocket money now!)

    That brought a hearty chuckle. There’s a reason why Hubby is not permitted to hang pictures or even touch a hammer. Trust me, the result is usually disasterous. Bless his heart, he wants to help….

    Dear Keith,

    Rosey certainly has a positive outlook on things, doesn’t she? Nothing like a little impromptu remodel. Cute story.

    I wish I had Rosey’s optimism – though I bet she’s a handful to live with. This made me smile, thank you.

    Thank you, Keith, for a smile on a day when the election results were dragging me down. Rosey is a great character!

      She certainly makes me smile! Wouldn’t it be lovely if they gave us an election-free day today?! What’s done is done.

    Goodness. He’s awfully calm considering the mess she’s left him to “neaten up.” I wonder what other plans she has up her sleeve 🙂

    Oh Rosey… lol. As soon as I read window + Rosey, “oh no” escaped from my lips. 😀

    it may take some convincing to do, but i think patching up the hole on wall would be much easier. good luck. 🙂

    Can’t have been a very strong wall – it sounds like my cottage, with all the internal walls lath and plaster.

      Any wall would suffer when Rosey decides to bang a nail into it! I dread to think what she’d do to yours!

    She was really swinging that hammer! Rosey may have anger management issues. Well done Keith!
