Each week Friday Fictioneers – Madison Woods posts a pic that begs to have a 100 word story written about it. Click above to see this week’s entries. The pic is reprinted below
My story is printed below. Visit Madison Woods’ site if you’d like to see and/or learn more.
Two elderly men on a park bench:
“Who’s a buzzard?
“You are, you old gizzard.”
“Who’s a gizzard?
“You are, you old goat”
“Now you’ve gone too far”
“Too far? You old fart.”
“I accept buzzard and gizzard. They’re in the bird family. But goat is a mammal. And now you’ve called me a smell. You’re mixing your metaphors. Next you’ll call me a shape shifter.”
“You are like a shit shafter.”
“And that’s a simile, moron.”
“Bird brain…. How’s that for a metaphor in the same family? Woodpecker, cuckoo, cockatiel, and silly-assed goose?”
“Okay… you’ve made your point.”
