Making your way in the world today takes everything you’ve got.
Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot.
You wanna be where everybody knows your name. CHEERS!
(Lyrics to Cheers by Gary Portnoy and Judy Hart Angelo)
Friday Fictioneers Thursday’s Pre-Fictionaire– Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.
This week it’s: Bar Stories – humor and real life and more…
The Sorority Sister: Cheers
(two buds sitting at the bar)
What’s her name?
Don’t know, but she’s cute.
School? Maybe, college.
You went to college?
Yeah. And no snide remarks from you.
Really? You… college?
Shut up. Where do I know her?
No, I never joined.
It’s a long story.
College would be a long story, but you in a dress?
I was pledging.
No, a light weight crepe pullover.
I bet you were hot.
All the frat brothers hooted me.
Oh, wow. TMI.
I’m going over. I’ve got to know her name.
Cheers. But hey, sweetie, buy me one before you go…
(Up goes a finger)
I adore witty banter, darling! Very nice.
Witty banter, it is then. Coming right up. Sauce on the side? Or do you prefer to shake it out of the bottle yourself? 😉 Randy
Ha ha, Dorothy Parker, these girls ain’t… but it is the kind of chatter that is authentic to our time, fun, with the “Pop! Goes the Weasel” ending! Good write, great prompt. Amy
This dialogue has been all around the mulberry bush…
I’m guessing these girls also ain’t girls.
Nice face. Where do I know you from?
Never heard that one before.
not a good line?
Just being facetious. 🙂 Or, in this case, face-tious. And no, it doesn’t work, at least for me. Now “I have two tickets to the Stanley Cup playoffs”….
I could hear the voices as I read, well done.
You hear voices?
I left a few words on your blog. Randy
I think a better name for this piece might have Salute!
As in a one finger salute?
I left my comments on your post previously – are things looking up yet?
Exactly as in that.
I see your comment now, and well, it’s Friday, there is up in that.
From what I know of American dialogue (not much, actually!) this feels realistic. 🙂 Fun to read.
From what I read of your piece (which was fun), I prey (sic) you don’t learn much about American dialogue. What language do vampires speak, anyway? Batish? Vampirese? Fangalesh?
Probably Transylvanian? 😉 She probably has an internal translator or something, like Dr Who’s magic notepaper thingummy! 😉 Thanks for your clever reply. 🙂
Loved the story! Loved the comments!
love the story, love the comments…. love the author. Ha.
Great dialogue 🙂 wonder if he should wear dress though.
He’s gained a little weight since college but it might turn a trick, so to speak… 😉
(in another bar it might have been quite the fang, once again, so to speak)
Hmmm….Picturing Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari here…or Buffy and Hildegard.
There you go… I like those images. How about Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis (Some like It Hot)?
Funny part was that I imagined these to be two guys just blustering in the bar – that’s why my sub title was (two buds sitting at the bar) but I like what the readers have done with the dialogue and have enjoyed rereading what I wrote to see why they’ve gone in these directions.
Thought about Some Like it Hot, too. 😉
