Friday Fictioneers: If It’s Not One Thing It’s Another

Welcome Dear Readers!  It’s time for Friday Fictioneers!  Which means it’s time to pack up our knapsacks with 100 words of our own choosing, hike up to the top of our imaginations and jump off!  

Here’s this week’s creatively-inspirational picture brought to us via our Friday Fictioneer Hostess, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at her blog, Addicted to Purple. Today’s picture was lent to us by Rich Voza over at


 If It’s Not One Thing It’s Another

Melissa! The blue one! Get it!  If any fall,  we’re fired.

We should quit, Roger.

But working at Doors-into-Nowhere-Land is just — ack! the yellow one —a stepping stone to getting better jobs at Disneyland, Melissa!


But what Melissa?  Hold that thought –the red one!

Couldn’t we just visit Disney– Roger! The yellow one! –land?

You mean just visit Disneyland for– oh that stupid blue one! –fun?

Yes! Let’s go tomorrow.  The red one, Roger! It’s our day off!

Hey!  Good–yikes the yellow one!–idea!

Oh Roger! I love—lookout for the blue one—you!

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Dear Linda, (shirt freshly pressed, I love Linda now in sequined blue) like the blue door I have looked between the lines of this post and concluded you have in fact, very cleverly, constructed a metaphorical discussion on the relationships that exist between couples in day to day life. And here I as thinking you only wrote comedy. I think another line of sequins is called for.

    • Yay ! I’m so glad you saw it that way, Summers! It gives me a really good excuse to go shopping for some sequined t-shirts! And maybe some jewel-studded jeans to go with them. What do you think? Too much?

      • Can there be anything too much for your fan club Linda. Why not go the studded jacket and the sequined tie, matching I LOVE LINDA underwear, the world is your oyster Linda, you’ll rack in the dollars

  2. Someone should tell them if they built a house around those doors they might get a raise 😉 Enough for Disney WORLD perhaps.

    Hilarious as always Linda

  3. Very original take on the prompt Linda, well done. That’s the second story where the door I thought was white has been portrayed as yellow… off to get my eyes tested. 🙂

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