A hundred words …

for Friday Fictioneers




He’s gone.

Who’s gone?

My snowman.

Where was he?

On that chair.

Snowbody there now!

Don’t joke, this is serious.

Okay, we’ll look for him. Describe.

Carrot nose…

Did he pick it himself?

Listen! Coal for a mouth and wearing my scarf.

Icecap on his head?

I’ll ignore that.

He’s gone to McDonald’s for an iceberger!

Stop it.

With chilly sauce!


Brrrr more like!

Look, footprints, they’re his.

There’s some snowballs, he’s fallen apart!

Not funny. Nooo, a puddle with my scarf in it.

He had a meltdown, should have taken a chill pill!

Don’t laugh, my scarf’s soaking wet!



1Thanks to Rochelle for hosting and to Dale for the photo.


Poke Froggie to join in the fun!

    I like those responses: “Snowbody there now!” and especially “He had a meltdown, should have taken a chill pill!”

    That must take a prize for the most snow puns in 100 words! Enjoyable stuff 🙂

    I like how you are able to take the most mundane photo and turn it into a comedy skit. Well-done, Keith!

    Very good, still laughing. I’m sure he’ll be back next year, and with one look into those doe like pebble eyes your heart will melt.

    A blizzard’s worth of pun. You made me laugh.

        Sent? Oh, that is not how it works with her and me 😉
        She sees, she asks or more like, she informs!!
        But yes. I did!

    😂 😂 😂 Are you sure you aren’t a comedic actor? As you read your tale
    I was laughing all the way. Your expressive voice in this one was perfect.
    “Chill Pill” … to funny, Keith.
    Have a good weekend … Isadora 😎

    It happened to another snowman I know. It must be a snowdemic! Someone get an ice-age set or something!

    Very funny. I love it. And I want a few of those chill pills – I can feel a meltdown coming on any day now.

    Cutely hilarious, Keith.

    I am missing Rosey, sorely. Please bring her back.

    Meanwhile that’s quite a spiffy, sweet mast head.

    Have a fun week, my friend.


    • Keith's Ramblings Apr 18, 2022 / 17:21

      Don’t worry, Rosey is never far away and she’ll soon be back, I promise!

      I designed my header with Ukraine in mind, hence the colours and message. We can but hope.

      Thanks so much, Natasha.
