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,
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.
Awe.. So sad. Maybe one day he’ll be able to find someone else to cuddle with.
There’s always hope but there’ll never be another Sally… or Johnny
Oh this was a sad tale.. But still those memories linger. and are a great solace.
yes they are indeed.
So sweet. I really like this.
Two feet up.. would you say?
Nostalgic. A lovely memory writing. I enjoyed.
That’s a lovely story, Randy.
Thanks… lovely memories.
Damn, that’s a nice story, Randy.
Damn, Thanks, Ted. 😉

A very touching story.
cuddling is touching… 😉
A sweet love story, told in a novel way. Nice work!
Not novel, just flash… 😉
A sweet but sad story. Nice work.
The things we remember that are tied to entertainment will sometimes cover many years. It is a way to put the memories in a time perspective.
Yes, it is, except this charactor really lost track of everything – 20+ years later.
I like this a lot, partially because it reminds me of my life. My wife and I first got to know each other watching the Simpsons together every evening. 🙂
Nothing like intimacy along with the Simpsons.
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. 🙂
You are so right.
Time heals, and Time steals.
A lovely and loving tribute to Sally.
Did you know her?
(Thanks for commenting)
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. 🙂
Randy – that was a touching piece. Cuddling is one of life’s all time pleasures.
yes, it is one of life’s all time pleasures.
I really really like this!
We are the medium and our memories are defined by moments of passage or significance in its life.
Wow. Well put.
