Friday Ficitoneers: Benny Flump’s French

Hello Dear Readers!  Happy Wednesday!  The only day of the week that has a hump — giving the rest of the days of the week something to grip onto thus keeping them from flying off into space. 

Plus Wednesday is also Friday Fictioneers Day, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple  — so it’s all good.

Here’s the prompt picture which will serve as this week’s inspiration for a 100-word story provided by Dawn M. Miller.

Benny Flump’s French

Mademoiselle Bouillabaisse-Bourgeois crossed the lobby of the Eiffel Tower, and all eyes drank of her beauty like they were drinking a tumbler of Chardonnay after eating a 16-inch baguette.

But no eyes drank more than Benny Flump’s.  Benny’s eyes were bigger than his stomach when it came to beautiful French women. And Benny thought Mademoiselle Bouillabaisse-Bourgeois the most beautiful creature he had ever pronounced.

They would marry!

At the top of the Eiffel Tower she said “I do.” Benny replied “adieu” and then jumped.

Oh, Benny Flump’s French left a lot to be desired I should have probably said earlier.

Until next time . . . I love you

    • Aha! Lindaura! I don’t blame you. How it all ended up in France I’ll never know! It just kept changing and changing and changing. I just lucky it ended up taking place on planet Earth! ;D

  1. Now that was funny. I am always jealous of those who can write funny stuff. But it’s a good jealous. Means I read what you write and enjoy myself. 🙂

    • Ahahah! A Flump Jump!!! Ron! Where were you when I was writing this story? But I hear Rosetta Stone is quite the talker, and only a few people can understand what she’s saying.

  2. Oh Benny…but I wonder, could she have pushed him? I mean, would she really want to take the name Flump? Her maiden name is so much more elegant 🙂

  3. Some really clever stuff here. The absurd simile in para 1, the names, the most beautiful creature he had ever pronounced, the appalling English/French pun. Surreal and great fun.

  4. Great story – ‘…drinking a tumbler of Chardonnay after eating a 16-inch baguette.’ is such a fantastic line and paints a great image. I’m surprised she said I do, and it’s a great pity he misheard!

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
