A hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers



One rule for them, another for us, I’m fed up with them.


The government.

     Oy, you know the rules, no politics in the pub!

Sorry. What did Adam say on December the twenty-fourth? It’s Christmas, Eve!

     Hey, we do not discuss religion here.

Sorry. Cold outside tonight.

     Oh, don’t go on and on about the weather.

Sorry. Did you hear about the bloke that got caught short running to the loo?

     Ay, no toilet humour.

Sorry. I’d offer you a drink, but that would probably be wrong too.

     I thought you’d never ask.

What?  I thought you didn’t tolerate sarcasm!

    I think “Sorry” got the upper hand in this conversation! You can rule out everything else, but NOT sarcasm. Not in a pub. Great read, Keith!

    Such a cute story and conversation. It comes to life as you read it. Cheers, Keith!

    Dear Keith,

    There’s just no pleasing some people, is there? Love the dialogue and I love hearing you read it. 😀

    This must be one of those pubs located in the church basement. Funny story, Keith.

    Quite the conversationalist. No talking when there’s drinking to be done!
