One

It's Monday so that means Micro-Fiction Monday

I had to edit my wee story several times and finally got it to 139 characters.


Broderick quietly sang “one is the loneliest number that there is ever is” and contemplated how he hated being designated carriage driver.

Ah, nothing worse than be a designated driver -- then or now!!! Great one for the day, Dianne! Have a great week! Hugs to Hope!!

Nice modern twist you gave Broderick and the gang.
I never would have thought of this.
Well done.

pink dogwood said...

great combination of words - so true about DD :)

Susan Fobes said...

I get it! Good one!

Au and Target said...

Love it! ROTFL.

Thanks for your kind words about Au. We will make sure his last days are happy, and we won't let him suffer.

Linda said...

I can feel Broderick's pain!

Happy Monday!

Pat said...

Seems to me he could still take a date on the outing, but maybe there's not enough room on the driver's seat. Clever variation on "designated driver"!

Melanie Sherman said...

I choked on my wine. ROFL.

Linda Reeder said...

Alas, poor Broderick.

SouthLakesMom said...

I guess if you're named Broderick, you pretty much HAVE to be the designated driver. His chauffer cap is to his right -- where we can't see it.

Well done!

Karen said...

A song for the DD...love it! :> Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Someone always has to be the driver. Sad, isn't it?

erik said...

Looks like we were thinking along the same lines!

anthonynorth said...

Designated driver is definitely no fun. But the micro was :-)

indicaspecies said...

So it's confirmed that he belonged to the Victorian era..haha!
Well done, and hope Iza is better.;)

Akelamalu said...

We're reading from the same page today on this pic Dianne! LOL

Matt-Man said...

I think his problem is that he appears to be hanging out with a bunch of lesbians. Cheers Di!!

DJan said...

Clever, very clever. Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day, clever Di! :-)

Diane said...

It sucks to be him, alright! :O)

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

Poor Broderick. So sad and lonely. But, if he wasn't suck a jerk maybe it wouldn't be that way! ;-)

Trisha said...

Love it!

Reb said...

Thanks for the ear worm....great job! Happy Valentines.

jabblog said...

Good to see he's a responsible driver;-)

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

But he can watch what happens and then use them for his fantasies later on, right?

Singing Bear said...

Brilliant, Dianne. I love the concept you've got going here.

Arkansas Patti said...

Very clever but then you always are.

sylviamorice said...

Haha--loved this! Guess the poor guy not only had to stay sober to drive the carriage but he had to be alone, too!

CrystalChick said...

OH bravo! I like this one too, good job. :)

Doctor FTSE said...

Someone has to volunteer to refrain from . . . from . . . so he can drive them home afterwards.

Bob-kat said...

Yeah, being carriage driver sucks but at least he doesn't have to go home with Chlamydia (she's the one by the tree right?)). LoL!

Great piece Dianne. Hope you and yours are well.

Micky-T said...

You are fricken awesome at this.

Michael G-G said...

Very nice MM. Love the idea of a "designated carriage driver."

Late this week. Still recovering from a Valentine's extravaganza. Hope the rest of your week goes well.

HermanTurnip said...

Excellent bit of micro-fiction! Try as I might I couldn't come up with anything worthy of submitting...and I've been thinking about it for the past two days! :-) I promise I'll try harder next time...

Scott Oglesby said...

Haha, that’s simply brilliant Dianne!

I’m leaving in seven days. I hope you come visit me in Florida…!

Granny Annie said...

Perfection:)

Cad said...

Looking at the bottles in the baskets, looks like they'd need a sober driver on the way home! LOL

Frank Baron said...

Ha! Brilliant! :)
