Here’s This Week’s Picture Prompt:
“Oh Roger! I can’t believe a week ago I didn’t even know you, and now we’re on our honeymoon.”
“Isn’t it wonderful, Juanita, my love?”
“But one tiny thing, Roger.”
“My name’s not Juanita.”
“What? Oh. Well, I knew that . . . uh . . . Margarita?”
“That’s a drink Roger.”
“Ha ha! I was just teasing you . . .Hen . . . Henrietta?”
“You have no idea do you, Roger?”
“It’s Matilda, Roger.”
“Matilda my love! Let’s go check in.”
“Okay, and Roger?”
“I love you.”
“I love you too, Juanita.”

Until next time . . . I love you

cute story, Glenda.
By the way, my name is Julio.
Ha ha!! Thanks for coming by Jude! 😀
She should have gotten to know him some more… She should have waited.. Poor Juanita! Lol
Oh Lucy, this is one great 100 word story!
Goodnight Matilda! Too, too funny. Matilda was never seen again was she?
LOL! No Honie! How did you guess? 😀
Gotta love this one, just gotta! Hit my funny bone again and again, all the way through your written piece! What fun, and nicely done! 🙂
Penny! I’m so glad to hear that! Thanks for coming by! 😀
I do believe he will have some problems in the future Lester…
I can’t decide whether this is funny or sinister but I’m fine with that. :-). Well done.
Haha! Either can I! 😀
Hilarious! Somehow I am happy for them. I think it will work out for them; even though I have no earthly reason to. 🙂
I feel the same way Christopher!! And thank you for stopping by to check it out! Much appreciated! 😀
Haha…. I can’t help but feel that Roger has done this rather often…! 😉
On the other hand; perhaps he is somewhat ‘shy of a sandwich or two’ and is clouded by the love of his life… Either which way, it was a fabulous read… 🙂
Oh thank you so much Carolyn! Ha! And I think you’re right. He’s a Poorboy sandwich emphasis on the Poor Boy! 😀
Thank you Shreyank. So glad you liked it. I appreciate your stopping by! 😀
That was charmingly funny! Enjoyed it very much!
Ah! Your comment makes me happy! 😀
lol. Thank you for the laugh. She should call him with some other name too:)
Ha! Yes that would make the story complete nightlake. Thanks for coming by! 😀
Only a week and they’re married? How funny it would if Juanita turned out to be Juan under the sheets. lol.
OOps…Meant to write…How funny it would be if Juanita turned out to be Juan under the sheets. But of course you knew I missed the word ..right?
Ha ha! Now that would put some pizazz into the story like nothing else! Love it! 😀
Ha! That would have been the ideal ending Lora! 😀
Short span of attention. Hope it’s not an omen. Nicely done.
Thanks Sandra! 😀
This is a good example of why endearing nicknames such as Honey, Sugar, Dear, and Sweetheart are so popular. It’s a whole lot easier than remembering old what’s-her-name.
Hey wait a minute . . . now that I think about it, my husband hasn’t called me by my actual name since around 1982 . . .
very funny – I really enjoyed this 🙂
Darn… those cases are easy.. just write up the name in ink on your left arm… or was it right?? it says Juanita on the left and Matilda on the right…darn darn.
Oh so that’s how you do it Bjorn! LOL!! 😀
Funny…but then after peaking in on some comments…OOh, could be scary.
At first I was thinking of those folks who have that rare brain disorder who can’t remember anything from the day before after sleep. I wasn’t thinking of a shark looking for goldfish…
Intriguing endings leave room for new beginnings…
Thanks for your visit.
Oh yes, now that you’ve pointed it out, it could take a turn for the scary. She married a man with a horrible brain disorder but only slowly discoverers it after it’s too late!
And thank you for coming by and leaving your comment, Jules!! Much appreciated. 😀
Funny story, especially since the Honeymooners real names are Ralph and Alice! BANG ZOOM!!!
LOL Perry! Perhaps they were incognito?
As someone who is bad with names, I can sympathize. Hopefully the marriage lasts until the end of the honeymoon.
Ha! I’m not very good with names either, David. I always try to make up for it by explaining that I never forget a face — because there’s no way anyone can disprove that! 😀
Such a great ending! I see a great juxtaposition of a sappy love story where one has memory problems (a la Nicholas Sparks) and a humorous piece. Loved it!
Oh that’s a good thought. So glad you liked my little yard KD!! 😀
Dear Juanita….er I mean Linda,
I predict this marriage is off to a shaky start. Maybe it’s just me. 😉
Rochelle the Gauntlet thrower downer.
Haha Rochelle! I think I just gave away my cover! 😀
what’s in a name 🙂 — he obviously loves her for herself.
Yeah! That’s the ticket Bill! 😀
He should just do what my husbands did and call her honey.
lol! yes that good old trick does it
LOL Linger! I wonder if they took a poll, how many husbands would actually know the names of their wives! 😀
I always told my first husband who ALWAYS called me “honey” he didn’t know my name. When we split up it sounded so strange to hear him call me
Oh I bet. My husband rarely calls me by me Linda but when he does I notice it.
ohmygoodness i’m afraid that he’s just gonna hump her then dump her. lol but i still find the story so adorable haha she doesn’t seem to mind and it kinda looks that they’re both having so much fun. great story 🙂
Haha! So glad you liked it KZ and I’ve never heard the phrase “hump her and dump her” I will try to find a reason to use it in my next conversation. LOL! (Oh this is going to be fun! :D)
