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.
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?
Don’t know what a Statefarm is, so I suppose I missed the punch! It’s a good variation on the Robert Frost poem though. O what trouble walls make. 🙂
State Farm is an insurance company who’s marketing jingle is:
“Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there…”
Like a good neighbor..Pete is there. 😉
You got it!!!
For Pete’s sake.
Thanks. I’ll have that jingle running through my head all day. “Like a good neighbor…” Clever dialogue, I’m sure Mr. Frost would enjoy it.
I Googled “Statefarm” – an insurance company? Nice dialogue!
Whose marketing jingle is: “Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there…”
I enjoyed this!
Sorry: I don’t understand this.
To be honest, neither do I.
Well, Jim can always stay indoors, though I bet then Pete would knock on his door.
knock on his door like a good neighbor?
Oh God, Kill Me Now….
Wonderful play on words and people and the mix of the two over time and over fences and walls. Well done.
How would you like to die – impalement perhaps?
🙂 As far as insurance goes, I’m all for the discount double check and Aaron Rogers. Does that make me shallow? If so, I’m happily wading.
Are you shallow Hal?
The comments explain the state farm… but even without it: I like the dialogue.
Good because I’d like to talk about it. meet me at the fence.
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 🙂
Doug had a point of view?
to block the view?
I didn’t get the statefarm either so glad you explained it. Loved the dialogue and the neighbourly problems regarding what is a good neighbour.
Thanks. Now get over to the over side of your fence. 😉
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
