A Visit to the Tonight Studio: Friday Fictioneers

Memories linger like the scent of her perfume or the touch of the pillow that she never shared with me because it was her favorite…

Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s: Memories

A Visit to the Tonight Studio

I can’t believe this is it. This looks exactly as I remember it when I was married to Sally.

She and I stayed up every night, heads propped up on pillows in our bed, and our feet sticking up from under the covers.

We’d lower the lights, cuddle a little, and listen to Ed swing out,

“Hereeeeeeeeeeeee’s Johnny!”

And you say that Johnny’s dead? He died in ’05?

Where does the time go? Sally died in ‘ 91.

You said that was a year before Johnny retired?

I guess I sort of stopped watching then.

No one to cuddle with.

  2. Life can be so cruel. You live a while find someone you love then time steals them from you and all you have is memories. You live too long and time will steal those too. There’s a sober thought! Good story Randy. 🙂

  3. I really enjoyed Johnny’s monologues and when he gave the answer to the question before reading the question. Remember when he has Zsa Zsa Gabor on…a classic episode.

    I am enjoying reading and writing these 100 word wonders. I’m in the llinz a couple of times. 🙂

Have some fun...
