Sometimes things aren’t what they seem. So don’t break anyone’s chop sticks until you’ve walked a while through their noodles…
Friday Fictioneers – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic each week to write a 100 word story about.
This week, it’s humor (funny, it was humor the week before, and the week before that, and the week before…)
One Man’s Fortune is Another Man’s Misfortune
Got laid off from my job slatherin’ ribs at Red’s Barbecue.
Didn’t know what I’d do next. But I had a wit and a sharp tongue.
Picked up work at the local chopstick labeling company, ‘cept I can’t write.
I’d jest tell the dude somethin’, and he’d type into that thar labeler.
He’d gussy it up fortune-cookie style.
But one time, he changed it ’round completely.
“Happiness is a side of pork, people.”
“It is happiness enough to know that one is superior to the fork people.”
Fork people? Needless to say, I quit.
Hell, I don’t know what that meant, but it sounded too nasty fer me.
