One hundred words …

    for Friday Fictioneers




So beautiful.


The floating eggs.

     You can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs.


     You can’t…

I heard you, but why say it?

     It just came into my head.

As I was saying, there’s quite a history behind Eggfest… 

     What’s the best day to eat eggs?

Now what are you…

     Fry-day! Get it?

Listen, will you? Today’s special because…

     What did the egg do when it saw the frying pan?

Oh, for goodness …

     No, it scrambled!

Stop being silly and LISTEN, did you know…

     Your trouble is you can’t take a yolk! Yolk, joke, hehe!

I give up!



Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to David Stewart for the picture.

    I was going to add my own egg pun, but everyone else has already poached ’em!

    You’re a man of patience, Keith. I’d have given up earlier. What a fun take on the prompt.

    To every thing there is a season. Unfortunately for these two, one is in Spring and one is in Winter.

        Hi Keith, sorry for the delay in responding, just life and stuff.
        Your kind comments are much appreciated, thank you.
        And I’m still writing, don’t be a stranger!
        Obviously right now I have no idea when I’ll be back in Scotland, but I normally spend some time in Deal at the beginning or end of my trip.
        If you send me a text or Whatsapp on 0033664223460 I’ll give you a shout and you can buy me oodles of beer!

    You’re a lovely reliable source of gentle humour, Keith. I like your take on the prompt week after week.

    Dear Keith,

    And the egg puns keep running. Delightful take on the prompt and exquisite frog rendering. You crack me up.

      Now you’ve started! The story took a few minutes and the frog a couple of hours, so I’m pleased you like him!

    So much fun. I can’t help but suspect that Rosey was part of this conversation.

    Don’t ya just hate the ones who won’t let you finish your story and keep butting in with their puns and jokes?
    Course, this was funny to read. Not sure the MC was pleased!

    He was on a roll, wasn’t he? An egg roll. ;>)

    Keith, you’ve got me thinking of every egg pun and joke I’ve ever heard. Surprising how many there are.

    Why was the egg late for school?
    He didn’t study for the eggs-am.
