George where are you? I hear you — but I can’t see you.
I’m by the crooked tree!
The one shaped like an S.
But they’re all shaped like an S.
I’m by the one that has a curlicue branch growing out of it.
But they all have curlicue branches growing out of them.
Oh wizened. That’s helpful, George.
Hey! You’re the one who insisted on vacationing at Macramé World, Marge! Marge? Marge?
I’m over here, George!
By the crooked tree!
The one that’s shaped like an S.

Like it a lot!
Ah Thanks Mike! 😀
Hey! Today’s not Friday. Is it? Maybe I don’t understand the rules. Wouldn’t be the first time.
For some reason, she posts the challenge on Wednesdays. I don’t think I’ve ever really known why.
It was the pattern before I took it over. The original intent was that the prompt went up on Wednesday to give us time to come up with a story and edit before posting. Hence the stories were supposed to be posted on Friday. Somewhere along the line it became a race to see who could post the earliest.
Oh! Well that clears that up!! How nice that everyone loves it so much they want to be the first to get their entry up there! Thanks for enlightening me! 😀
Haha! Circular indeed! Happy to see one of your stories again. I don’t see them often enough. Thanks for giving me a good laugh.
Ah! Thank you! I have been on a little break recharging my batteries. I’m so glad you liked this one EagleAye! 😀
It’s obvious they were supposed to macrame a scarf and anchor it at the edge of the forest to find their way out.
Some people just don;t appreciate the utility of macrame…
Really? Well now it’s becoming embarrassingly apparently that Marge didn’t put didly squat into researching their vacation destination.
haha, I enjoyed this bit of lightness in a dark week for the fictioneers!
Oh so glad you enjoyed it — 😀
Ha, loved this Linda, macrame world indeed, how clever of you. Very enjoyable as always.
Thanks Michael! 😀
What a great twist of this story; I’ve read a couple and liked yours very much…
Oh thank you Ronnie! So glad you liked my tangled little tale! 😀
LOL reminds me of conversations with my husband… sometimes we just go around and around! love it.
Ahaha! So do my husband and I. We only stop when one of us asks finally asks, “What was the question again?
Hahaha! Macrame World, eh? Probably not their most romantic vacation…
Ha! Yes, I’d have to concur with you on that, Jan. They really should have gone to Crochet World . . .
Nicely done! Reminds me of a vacation to St Pete 26 years ago when I got completely turned around.
Well, at least it added an extra memory to your vacation, Jim. Unfortunately, I can get completely turned around going downtown!
Sounds like they were tying one on, Linda. But maybe knot.
Nice one Linda 🙂 And I love your header pic.
Oh thanks Sandra! ( I found the header picture in a 1932 Saturday Evening Post) 😀
haha 🙂 i hope they find each other! 🙂 missed your stories!
So glad you liked it, K.Z! 😀 And it’s good to be back.
This character would fit well in one of your “Slightly Creepy Seventies” episodes 🙂
Ha! Yes stuck in the Slightly Creepy Seventies — sounds like a level of hell.
At least you can tie knot at Macrame world
Ha ha! Really!
Looks like their next vacation should be at the creepy 1970’s World. It is creepy but much easier to find your husband amongst the decor when wearing his plaid on plaid flared jeans amongst spiral staircases and pink lounge bathrooms.
Ahahah! Slightly Creepy Seventies world! Now that would be scary!
And they were never heard from again. Love this one, Linda.
Thanks Sorchia! 😀
The one ray of lightness among all the stories I’ve read thus far. Well done!
It seems like the Macrame world is a great place for hide and seek. Thanks for the laugh.
It really would be. They should change the name to Hide and Seek world. I think it would appeal to more people, that’s for sure.
This reminds me of “There’s a hole in my bucket” – great fun!
Haha! It is like a hole in the bucket — I should have made her name Dear Liza! 😀
Haha see how he likes it!
If you holiday in Macramé World there is a risk of being covered in sweater. Or maybe knot.
Ahahaha! Tremendously good point!
Ha!ha!Linda!This was so funny-reminded me of a game we played as kids-something akin to ring-a ring -a roses;-)
Oh really? I remember playing hide and go seek a lot when I was little. I think that was probably my favorite game! Well that a baseball (I had two brothers and they always needed a catcher or a first baseman!)
In India,there is no baseball but we too played a lot of hide & seek and hopscotch and blind man’s buff -to name just a few 🙂
Oh that’s so interesting. We played all those games too! I guess kids are the same no matter where the live! 😀
:-)Yes,we have so many things in common
I hope that George and Marge find each other soon. It’s knot good to stay lost. 😉 Giggle. Good one.
Haha! Certainly knot! 😀
Hi Linda — you’ve done this kind of thing before — Can I make a challenge to you? Write a Palindrome (a sentence palindrome — it doesn’t have to be word for word forwards and backwards.) Something that starts and ends the same way — but takes on a slightly different meaning at the half-way point.
Wow. That sounds really really hard. Have your written any — if so send me the link!
Very good! 🙂
Linda, how clever you are! This was so cute and so much fun! Thanks for the chuckle! Nan 🙂
Oh I’m glad you liked it Nan! Thanks for coming by! 😀
Very clever, Linda. 🙂
Thank you! 😀
Haha super cute!
Thanks cam gal!
This is absolutely too funny and strangely resembles many conversations I’ve had with my dear father! I hope they found each other! Awesome story!
Thank you Adelie! I would have loved to have heard that conversation between you and your dad! 😀 Thanks so much for coming by.
