Each week Rochelle Wisoff-Fields posts a pic to write a 100 word story about. This week’s photo is:
A Slice of Type
Gertie, why are we saving that old typewriter? It’s a dust collector.
Why, Morris? Because it’s a collector’s item.
Collector-shmector. The keys are bent, there’s no ribbon and the slide is broken.
So nu, Morris? You can’t bend over to tie your shoes. What do you expect from an old typewriter?
No collector is gonna want this piece of chazerai.
And when I’m gone, Morris, what’s going to become of you? Are we going to throw you in the trash heap?
No, Gertie, “we” isn’t gonna throw “me” anywhere. Because you, Gertie, will be gone – along with that typewriter.
chazerai: Yiddish for junk.
