Mending Walls: Friday Fictioneers

What is it about the walls we build?

Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about.

This week it’s balls-to-the-walls serious humor.

Mending Walls

Jim, I’m back again.
And I tell you again, Pete, good fences make good neighbors.
Jim, there’s something that doesn’t love a wall.
Not here. I should of made it bigger.
No one appreciates this one – much less a bigger wall.
Why Doug put up those bushes.
Doug likes bushes.
He’s hiding your rust-bucket wall.
There’s more to being neighbors than fences. That’s why I’m back every year.
And that’s why I have a fence. Walls make for good neighbors. Now go back to being one.
Pete, did I ever tell you my last name is Statefarm?

  1. I read somewhere that the first person who put up a fence is the originator of war. I guess there is some truth in that. Good dialogue! We have plenty of trees too, so I can see Doug’s point 🙂

  2. I never really felt an insurance company was a neighbor or friend. You don’t pay friends. You have to have insurance though or you’re in trouble. Cute story. At one time my husband and kids were all on my work health insurance. I told people that they didn’t dare let me die. It was funny while it lasted. 😀 — Suzanne
