Don’t Be Like Bob

tltweek117Have you heard about what happened to Bob? Bob lost his way and needed help from his G.P.S. 

 

This wasn’t for a frivolous, stupid reason, like texting or clowning around, Bob thought. Surely his reasoning saved him from any risk of trouble.

 

 

Bob’s, and several other people’s, funerals are coming up over the course of the next week.

 

Here we are at week 117 of Three Line Tales . It’s yet another kind of micro~fiction with a photo prompt.

A Faerie Tale

“You’re taking quite a gamble,” Elzo reminded Ennio. “It’s never a wise move to follow the Pipes of Pan.”

 

“Quite true, Old Bean!” his friend admitted. “It would be wise to beware, while we’re here, all the unicorns, rainbows, and banshees, among other risks.”

 

“That’s true metaphorically too,” the former continued. “Everyone knows that Keats’ ‘La Belle Dame Sans Merci’ wasn’t really just a lovely faerie nymphomaniac, but that she was a symbol of an obsession of his.”

 

“We can relax here for a while and go home better able to deal with life’s unicorns, rainbows, and banshees.”

 

Welcome back yet again to Friday Fictioneers where Rochelle leads us weekly through our hundred~word story. This week her husband Jan W. Fields has supplied the photo prompt.
