The First Day in the Life of Moishe and Geetel in Their New Apartment in The Bronx: Friday Fictioneers

Nothing like a long standing love affair in a new residence ….

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

The First Day in the Life of Moishe and Geetel in Their New Apartment in The Bronx

You rented a 5-story walk-up?
It’s beautiful brick, and overlooks a Japanese Garden.
Putz. The pond’s green, the willow tree’s dead, and the walk-up’ll kill me.
It’s November, Geetel, the tree’s supposed to be dead. So the pond has algae. And, the walk-up won’t kill you.
Oh yeah? But a knife to your heart, like the one you’re putting in mine, will.
Where’s the challah knife, I’ll do it now.
Moishe, lower your voice, or you’ll get us thrown out of this apartment, too.
Oy! Like it’s always my fault? Shush, Geetel, watch the view.
View, snhmoo, you’re still a putz, Moishe.

  1. Dear Randy Shmandy,

    I recognize the voices in this story. In fact I think I know these people. Since this is my second attempt at a comment, you might be getting two from me. Take your pick.

    Shalom,

    Ruchel Schvester

    • The old saying of “three strikes and your out” doesn’t hold water here.
      In fact, nothing holds water here. All the buckets have holes and none of us play baseball anyways.
      So, go ahead, write a third comment and make my day..

      Clint and Groucho

    • Oy. Now he’s ordering me around. Nu. Nothing’s wrong with your hands that I can see. You want challie? Get up off your tuchas and get your own challie, shmendrick.
      And the nix that reference to Jews. Hitler tried that line onstage during his early stand-up comedy career. Wasn’t funny then, not funny now. I’m not sure wives are a good target anymore either. Certainly not women in general as the object in that humorless line, which your friend, Trump, is providing fertile ground for learning about. Excuse the fertile pun.
      You maybe want some honey with your challah?

  2. Great voices – sound like a couple who have been together a VERY long time. I know a few like this, every word out of their mouths is a complaint – I always hope there’s a sliver of love buried under the hours of bitching. Great tale 🙂

Have some fun...
