A story …

for Six Sentence Stories where the given word is Screen.





It was Thursday night at the bar and as usual Jane, Sammy and Charlotte were enjoying a drink whilst saying silly things to make each other laugh.

When Sammy started talking to her hand Charlotte asked what she was doing and she told them she had the latest cell phone implanted in her palm!

Charlotte put on her sunglasses and when Jane asked her why she said they had an inbuilt computer screen and she was reading an email. 

Jane scurried off to the lady’s room and when she returned she had several feet of toilet paper hanging from the back of her jeans. 

When the others pointed it out to her, she explained she was printing some documents!

I can’t imagine what they’ll come up with next Thursday.






Thanks to Denise at GirlieOnTheEdge for hosting.

    I especially liked the idea of printing those documents on toilet paper. I wonder how they upgrade those implanted computers. Nice tale of a future that I hope doesn’t happen.

    “Printing some documents…”That is the most polite expression I have heard to explain a bathroom visit…absolutely hilarious, Keith!

    If those 3 are regulars at the bar, you know they’ve got to have some “fans” 😆
    Funny stuff, Keith!

    Thank god I’d already had my coffee. Saved my having to clean the display and/or change shirts*

    * cultural reference, that though the source is way back in the mid 20th, the phenomenon surely is current. A ‘spit take’** when someone encounters a very funny instance while drinking a beverage
    ** attributed to Danny Thomas on his American TV sitcom (‘Make Room for Daddy’) in the late ’50s

      What a relief, otherwise I’d have felt so guilty! A spit take, a new expression for me. I’ll try surprising my friend tonight when he has cheeks full of beer, just to give me a chance to use it!

        That (causing a spit-take) was all of our ambition at social gatherings*.

        *when we were in-person social**

        ** and funny
