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.
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.
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.

🙂 Thanks for playing
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). 😀
“Mother please, I’d rather do it myself video.”
Ah-HA! A winner.
Much better than having a headache or having to seek a cure…
I wouldn’t trust her to cure my headache…
Neither would I….
I think that I would go for anything but that machine… somehow I sense that Henrietta could be related to Wallace.
After watching your train chase, I might just take Henrietta up on her machine.
That was so much fun!
Ha, fun! He’ll have a real doozy of a headache by the time she’s finished.
I suspect that he’ll be finished soon after she is.
No thank you… I don’t trust her headache machine one bit… Methinks he’ll lose his head should he use it!
Ha. An inverse or reverse of the old saw, “use it or lose it.”
Meaning, in this case, if she uses it, he’ll be losing it.
Oh! This is so darn funny – from the title to the last line. How very clever.
I like clever.
Love this. Hope some body from the pharma industry reads it.
Ha. great thight.
Let’s patent it instead and either sell it to the pharma industry or IPO it ourselves.
What d’ya say? Let’s put the screws to it…
🙂 I am sure FDA shall not approve it on some or other pretext.
You are so right – unfortunately.
But it would have been a nice try, at least.
I do NOT want to be the guinea pig that tests out the invention! Enjoyed!
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.
That Henrietta is quite the “engineer”, isn’t she?
We have a few just like her where I work 😉
Really? And you stay, or just stay away…. aye?
Stay away! lol
