Twisting the Night Away: Friday Twistioneers

Ever wake up in a funk? Worse, if you woke up where this person did…

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…)

Twisting the Night Away

Ding Dong.
Yes, who’s there?
Sorry, sir, but I found these slippers under the front porch of your house.
Yes, sir, right there where your house landed over these trees.
Trees? Landed? Wait, I remember now. There was this twister…
I want to thank you, sir
Thank me? Who are you?
I am unchkin
Well, Mr. Unchkin, where am I?
In Kansas, sir. And we all want to thank you
Yes. All of us.
Ding Dong. Ding Dong.
Why are all the bells ringing?
The witch is dead….

“Ding Dong” Randy Mazie

The moral of this story is:
Be careful if you twist the night away,
you might just wake up in the morning over some witch.

  1. Dear Randy,

    Hmmm…Kansas is just three miles west of us in the KCMO area. I’ll be watching for that house.
    Love the immoral moral to your story. It’s only fair. I made you cry. You made me laugh.



    • wait. Did you find slippers there, too.? or, were they here?
      Now, I’m all confused. Where were the slippers – here or there?

      You know what – just forget it. I think I’ll just change it to
      I am unchkin saying that he found a dead body under the house and that he was calling the Constable if the owner didn’t pay him hush money.
      How’s that?

  2. Randy, Wow! If those are the original ruby slippers, they’re worth a lot of money. However, I read that there was more than one pair made. I have a feeling there are many witches also. Humorous and well-written story. 🙂 —Susan

    • Yes. These are one of the 100 only true original ruby slippers that have uniquely manufactured to your desire that the only items that you purchase should be one of a kind.

  3. Hahahahaha! Now THAT’S a story … especially the mention of my great Home State.
    The moral was the perfect topper, too, Randy. I’m still laughing. A-1 entry!

  4. Lovely moral, clever tale, and that house does look as if it has just landed. But whose are the slippers? The witch didn’t wear slippers. The house didn’t crush Cinders as well did it?

      • She probably did wear slippers. After all Cinders’ glass slippers were definitely shoes with heels. All this nursery rhyme and fairy tale stuff tends to use language differently.
        And I definitely recognise the curled up toe variety – don’t genies wear those too?

    • Dear Nan,
      Thanks for commenting and admitting that you live in Kansas and that you ACTUALLY LOVE it.
      Now the whole world knows – and you can’t hide it anymore. You’re sort of out-of-the Kansas Kloset – so to speak.

      Well, Ding-Dong. How’s it feel to be out and free.

  5. OMG! Randy where have you been all my life? I can not believe I have been so woefully behind in FF I’ve missed your gems. I am feasting on your blog this morning. I’ll try to leave you a few crumbs. Dana

Have some fun...
