A conversation …

for Friday Fictioneers

Nonsense she said. Honestly, I said, I went around the corner and it was like Glasgow in the twenties. Trams, old trucks and ancient cars I said, and an urchin. What’s an urchin she said. An antique kid I said. Then she said I’d been drinking again, the cheeky mare. I said I had, but just a wee dram. Drinking wee-wee she chuckled. You know what I mean I said. Anyway, I can prove it ‘cos I took a picture on my phone I said. Show me then she said, so I tippity-tapped the screen and … I accidentally deleted it.  It’s true though, honestly.

Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to CEAyr for the picture.

    Not far off a conversation you might here on a Saturday night in Glasgow after a few drams have been consumed! Good fun Keith.

        Amazing, I was there last in February, in fact the last bar I visited before lockdown came along!

    Dear Keith,

    I could hear this conversation. Easy enough to lose photos on the phone isn’t it? Love it.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

      Tell me about it! On a special trip, I always take my little cheap back up camera and double-take just in case!

    Quite charming, Keith. You have an eagle eye as I didn’t see the person was snapping a picture. Great froggie couple also 🙂

    LOL. She’ll go home talking about the guy with the tall tale to tell for sure. Nicely done dialogue.

    Hmmm, did he step back in time, or not? Maybe it’s best to not know, don’t want to change our future by messing things up back then.

    There’s a clear sense of voice and character in the writing here. Like we’re listening to the narrator tell us the story in a pub over a few drinks. Great stuff.

    Hmmm try cloud storage. Some images are forever. Haha. Great cheeky tone!

    Pics speak more than a thousand words.
    I focused on the photographer too in my story!
    If you have an iPhone, deleted pics can be restored 🙂

    Oh, so that’s what she said, is it now? Well tuned to good humor, Keith. 🙂

    Great writing and conversation in this story, Keith! I think I’ll go pour myself a ‘wee dram’ 🙂

    I love this, Keith! I can just hear him telling the tale to any who would listen (at the barstool beside him, I like to think)…

      That’s exactly what I had in mind Dale! I heard many a conversation along those lines when I was serving behind the bar in my pub days.

    Hahaha I enjoyed this… who is telling the truth? That wee dram might have been larger than admitted to 😉

    That was great! What a fun story. I loved this line: “An antique kid I said.”
