Welcome Dear Readers!
The week has rolled around again to Wednesday, (the week likes to roll around — kind of like a roll-a-way bed in an earthquake — only without the mattress) which means it’s time for The Friday Fictioneer Challenge! Yay!
Challengers are asked to write a 100-words story about the weekly picture that is on display over at Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple. Rochelle is our hostess with the mostess and the Friday Fictioneering-est!
This week’s picture was provided courtesy of Randy Mazie at the Writer’s Village, who subscribes, like I do, to the theory that no story is complete unless there’s a goat involved in there somewhere. Thank you Randy!
“Baaaaa!” Cried Jennifer Spectacular.
Arthur marked his place in Three Billy Goats Gruff and looked up momentarily. “Didn’t that banana agree with you, Jennifer?”
“Well, I warned you about gulping down a banana after eating a purse, a chain-link fence and a can of Sprite, now didn’t I?
“No I don’t have any Tums.”
“Don’t call me that!”
Why you ungrateful little goat!
“What do you mean what am I doing? I’m calling animal control to come get you!”
“Do you really mean that, Jennifer Spectacular?”
“Okay, I’m sorry too.”
Until next time . . . I love you

A man and his silly goat / what a great tale
Thank you Moondustwriter! ;D
Actually, I think Arthur is the one who is spectacular. That goat is behaving like a spoiled brat.
No kidding, Undercover!! Jennifer Spectacular thinks she’s all that and a bag of potato chips she just ate.
Arthur is a goat whisperer. You should have seen the way Jennifer acted with her last owner. You don’t even want to know!
*Snort* Oh my, too much 🙂 I need to learn ‘goat’
LOL! I know. Me too, Carrie. I’ve been putting it off which is why I don’t currently own a goat!
Looks like there aren’t any words in goat language except Baaaa. Anyone who wants to speak goat will easily pick up the language.
Well, yes, but there is a lot of nuance involved in the placement of emphasis on the a’s. I’m waiting for the Goat Rosetta Stone to come out on the market! 😀
Dang. i used up all my good goat puns commenting on Moondustwriter’s blog!
LOL! You gotta to learn to pace yourself, Seb! 😀
It must have been the banana peel or perhaps that can of motor oil I ate but reading this I’m suddenly feeling ver-baaaaah!
Hahaha! You lived on motor oil when you were a baby. Maybe your developing an allergy to it! 😀
This was funny and sweet, darling.
Thank you Helena! 😀
I think it was the banana.
Thanks for sharing.
I think it was too JK! 😀
I can see that the banana would be a big problem. 🙂
Haha! Show me a banana-free goat and I’ll show you a digestively happy goat, I always say.
At least Jennifer didn’t suffer her demise…. Diane
Yes, that Jennifer is a tough cookie (maybe because her favorite snack is tough cookies!) 😀
The story of goat and man who loves her. I get indigestion just thinking about it. Nice one.
Shalom and Baaaaaa,
Ahaha! Maybe you should have ordered the coin purse appetizer, Rochelle, instead of the handbag sandwich. I can’t tell you how many Tums I’ve gone through since eating a Coach Bag for dessert last week! 😀
Baa-d to the bone!
… and you’re right! No story is EVER complete unless there’s a goat involved in there somewhere.
Nothing like an overeating goat, who can’t keep her purse down after eating a banana. Someone needs to teach her how to purge – or some portion control.
Your old friendly goat, Randy
Haha Randy! Oh I like the idea of teaching a goat how to purge. Maybe Jennifer only appears Spectacular on the surface, but underneath all is not well. Bwhahaha! You mind goes in entertaining directions, Randy, you friendly goat you!
Baa, Baa, Baa, Baa, BAAAAA!
Baa, Baa, Baa, Baa, Baa…. Baaa, BAAAAA!
Perry. I’m touched. Thank you. *wiping tear from eye*
Sweetly inventive – and so typical of a goat – eating everything in sight.
Arthur is a clever little guy if he can understand the variations in the goat’s lingo! Cutely done!
Haha! Well he’s always had a flair for languages! 😀
Looks like Arthur has a bully, not a billy, goat and he should heed the message in “Three Billy Goats Gruff”. Fun story.
You are correct VB! HA! 😀
Sounds like the conversations I have with my cat…very funny!
hahah! Me too now that I think about it! 😀
a great story about baa baa not so black sheep 😉
Thanks! I realized after I posted it that I’m not really sure what sound a goat makes. But I’m not sure it’s Baaa.
Keeping the funny coming linda, just the way we like it.
Aw, thanks Joe. I will do my best! 😀
I have always wanted to try a purse but even I know to stay away from bananas afterward. Thanks for the story.
Lewis I can tell from your picture you are a cautious person banana-ily speaking.
Awesome dialog. I find the goat to be particularly witty. So cleverly written and hysterically funny. I wish there was a “love” button.
Ah!! Thanks EagleAye!!
Not a baaaaad story.
lol 🙂 this dialogue is spectacular! 🙂 and the comments too ^^
Ah, thank you KZ. I’m so glad you liked my version of the truth! 😀
Such a lovely goat story. lol 🙂
Haha! I can see your a sucker for a great goat story just like me! 😀
