Up in the air about who you are? Here comes the plane truth. Can you handle it?
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s: HUMOR
The Wood Carver and the CEO: A Tales of Two Chiselers
You asked me to teach you woodworking but you’re not ready.
You tried to use a carving tool. But you carved, “On a wing and a prayer.”
You said you could use a scoop. Not true. That sent you into a “tail spin”.
Then I asked you simply to, “Pass me the plane.”
The next thing I know you’re taxi’ing a jet down the runway yelling that you’re going to Washington to ask for more money.
So much ambition and grandiosity.
You said that’s what drives the economy.
Then, banker, do what you do best. Chisel people, not wood.
Chisel people, not wood. I love that line.
interesting is good….
I love your title, but I have to admit I’m missing something about the story. 😦
Ooh… let me crawl out from under the shavings of puns… good one… a little politics ain’t bad.
I’m hoping to weave more politics in my writing – not just a flash fiction in the pan, so to speak
I’m sorry, but I don’t get it. Is it supposed to be about politicans? Maybe I’m tired after reading so many tonight.
No worry. No matter.
It’s a very loosely woven piece.
More abstract, and abstruse, than it is accessible or agglutinated.
The labor to link the two ‘artisans’ was worth it. I hope the one’s plane leaves its mark on the earth and the other on our hearts and minds.
Only the ancient carpenter has left a lasting mark…
Bankers! You got them there! Nice one, you put some thought into this.
Ouch. Bringing the two “levels” together hurt but I had fun with the relationship and little quotes.
Oh the puns we will read, the laughs we will have! Excellent!
Chuckles are good.
I like the first and last lines. Until I got to the last line, I was confused. I thought I was reading a story about a boy learning how to be a woodworker based on the first line, so I got lost. Of course, I probably would’ve been a little less lost if I’d read the title first, lol. This was interesting.
I think it is a story of a man and a boy. Just a big boy.
It’s good to see you back in any case…overnight case…makeup case…suitcase…
The cuts the cuts, a CEO would know about that. Very good 🙂
“the cuts the cuts… which CEO’s know about.
lots of careful and accurate word play in there. well done.
I was hoping not to chisel anyone out of anything….
I loved this, with all the word-play. I guess you can’t make a woodworker out of someone who hasn’t discovered their soul just yet. Maybe one day (or not).
good way of putting it… someone who hasn’t “discovered their soul just yet.”
You’ve scoured the world for double entendres for this one, WV! Nice idea to link the two men this way.
Didn’t scour the world, just the runway.
and just Gate 3 at that… (smile)
