The Adventures of Jim and Henrietta and Her Amazing Bone Crushing Headache Machine: Friday Fictioneers

Love means helping one another. Sometimes, preferably, from far away…

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

The Adventures of Jim and Henrietta and Her Amazing Bone Crushing Headache Machine

I had one giant headache.
Wished Henrietta would just go away, or give me Tylenol and a cold compress.
Maybe a sip of bourbon.

Naw.

Instead, she’s banging in the cellar, cussing and sawing, welding and boring, screwing and gluing, while I should be snoring and healing, resting and renewing.

“Henrietta,” I call down the cellar. “What’re you doing aside from killing me?

“Jim,” she replies. “I’m building a one-of-a-kind giant headache pressurizing tourniquet-style A-one forehead skull-crushing make-the-pain-go-away love-you machine.”

I liked her better when she was working on that rocket ship to the moon project down by the creek.

  1. Dear Randy,

    It sounds more like a headache-giving machine. One has to applaud Henrietta and give her an E for effort. No? I’m guessing Jim would say, “No!” Good one and good to see you back in Frogtopia as TRG calls it.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  2. Hee-hee-hee-hee-heeeee! That was a treat, Randy! A-1! Actually, that machine she made cost $50,000 — $1000 for the machine, $49,000 to have that name printed on. Good seeing you in the pages this week. Don’t be a stranger!

    Five out of five “please, I’d rather do it myself”s. (old commercial for Anacin). 😀

    • I have moved your application to the “Follow-up after Initial Testing Results” file.
      Understand that if you later decide to accept, the fees will be considerably higher. It could be bone crushingly higher.

Have some fun...
