Something’s wrong with this picture…..
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s:
Mr. Llessur Reyag sipped his coffee thinking that something was amiss
The stained glass was beautiful but the sngis across the teerts were gnorw.
Ydobon had noticed that sgniht on the teerts were a little sdrowkcab. But he dezilaer it.
He was rozar sharp.
He pulled out a smoke and derednop what was to be enod.
He sipped and dekoms and thinkered. The Ozark way.
Then in a hsalf of smoke it emac to him:
Just walk around with a rorrim and all would be thgir.
(some people use smoking mirrors – others just simply reverse the bigger erutcip)
you are a onlo. No reflection on your story. The picture was taken in a mirror on purpose. I know this because my source is tsitra. ffuts nuf.
gnihtyreve else aside – what is a “ONLO”? On, wait. taht si ton backwards; that’s a JUMBLE. That’s next week’s story.
molahs and molash and lamosh,
Looooooooon. But a nice one.
Sorry, I’m not even attempting to follow those two comments before I have some breakfast. Randy, thanks for the morning laugh. I can always count on you for that.
skool enif ot em.
Thanks for a good morning laugh! This was a fun story.
I noticed that when I first saw the photo but just let it go. Leave it to you to come up with a story based on that. I love it. What a mind. If I were a brain surgeon, oh boy!
I hope the rest of that line would go something like these –
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, You’d be working all day and night (I like that thought rather than working a New York minute)
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, what a bill you’d be sending me for repairs (Wait. I think I just insulted myself.)
– If “you know what were brains”, you’d become a rich proctologist practicing on me (Wow. I did myself in again.)
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, you’d need GPS to get around (there – that’s better. Now where was I?)
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, I’m sure I wouldn’t survive.
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, would you take Subway gift certificates as payment?
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, would you dare tell anyone what you saw in there?
and lastly (one of my favorite lines from my children’s poetry which I have not published on my blog)
– If you were a brain surgeon with me, would you please scratch while you’re inside there because it itches me a lot.
Please feel free to add any of your own…
If I were a brain surgeon I’d have job security (with you as my patient)!
True that, Paul. There’s a lot of money in reconstruction surgery. 😉
(come to think of it…several of us could use those services.)
Paul used to work in construction…
Very clever, very observant and very creative story. Yes, things are backwards here in the Ozarks, but we around it by wearing those mirrored sunglasses. Ron
gotcha about those sunglasses – which is why I have my SPG device backwards on my forehead, so that when I look into your sunglasses I’ll know where I am – Skarzo.
Clever story… I like smoking mirrors…
is that all you smoke?
Very clever 🙂
that’s the spirit…
i was all ready to leave a comment pointing out the typos. boy was i fooled. well done.
My wife had the same first reaction when i showed her the pre-publish version.
“Randy, you can’t publish that…the typos..oh, I get it.”
Crazy, man. Or do I mean crazy man? Very original, I don’t know how you do it. Being original I mean, I know about the other thing.
Check with Paul, he’s the brain surgeon.
I am simply the fodder of his handiwork,
or maybe skip Paul and it’s just that
I am the fodder of His handiwork,
or, more aptly put
He is the Fodder and I am His handiwork
or I am His Randywork
Good eyes! 🙂
I was hoping there would be a Greek God reversing the whole set up for real.
But I hope a lot of silly stuff. This was way smarter.
dooG kroW! 😉
Very clever story – got my brain whirring – too many mince pies have slowed it down, so thanks for the kick start!
I left a note on yours.
You got me, I’ll admit. I was about to call typo after the first backward word. Very clever idea. My kind of quirkiness. 🙂
Your writing is my kind of quirky, too.
I left a comment on your caffeine and on your balls..
ha….anybody reading this can wonder to your heart’s content but check out his stories first.
yes, context is everything 🙂
This is super and original. 🙂
Clever and unique. Great combo for any piece of writing, long or short. Good job.
Your gravatar doesn’t show a website/blogsite – do you have one?
Well done. I loved it. I thought you were up to something. 🙂
Very clever. Really enjoyed it. 🙂
enjoyment is good…
Wow, I read that real estate sign like it was normal, and didn’t even see it was backwards until you pointed it out. Must be the dyslexia kicking in 8^)
You were just too busy trying to figure out what you were doing there… old flames do that to a person’s head
what was he smoking ? Perhaps if he sat on the other side of the room?
You’ll have to ask Mr. Llessur Reyag hisself.
at first I thought he might be having a stroke….
oh no… perish the thought, and besides that would be an ekorts-
🙂 Love it.
thank you 😉
Imaginative and funny, your story was a nice departure from theusual. Well done.
I was so confused. I had to read it twice and thought the MC had a mental or learning problem. The third time, I figured it out. Genius!
