A hundred words…

for Friday Fictioneers





Keep it to yourself,  but John told me that Sam told him that…

     Pour me some wine, please.

There you are. Sam told him…

     No, not red, white.

John said that Sam said that Julie is going to…

     Second thoughts, I will have white.

Make your mind up! Julie is…

     Could you pass me the salt, please?

Okay, Julie’s going to…

     Thanks. Actually, I could do with some pepper too.

Here. Where was I?

     You said John said Sam said Julie’s going to…then you stopped!

Oh, forget it. Pour me some wine. Not red, white.  Pass the pepper. Salt…

    probably a better way to go, a good sip wine instead of gossip

    Julie’s story is a secret thankfully now!
    Perhaps it will be shared to the world after a couple of drinks! 🙂

      It’s important to get one’s priorities sorted out first! Cheers, Hilary.

    Yes, there are some friends like that. Still, pass the wine.

    Uh, lost my post. Or maybe I didn’t. Anyway, as I was saying, there are friends like that. I avoid them like the plague.

    But what did Sam say that John said that Julie said? This reminds me of an evening listening to my my in-laws! 🙂

    Oh, I hope she doesn’t! It’ll probably be a terrible mistake…whatever it is. I can tell by the tone of his voice. 😉

    Not listening, not interest, gossip is like that. However, if he had started with, ‘guess what they said about you?’

    What’s Julie gonna do? What?! What?!

    That’s one way to stifle gossip — and to drive someone to drink! Entertaining tale, Keith 🙂
