Just For You – Friday Fictioneers

Wednesday and it’s Friday Fictioneers time.  Why does a scene like this look way too familiar?  Oh right. I live with two adult kids… Should you feel inspired to play along, click on the frog below and add your 100-words worth!  Till then, a thank you always goes to Rochelle for keeping us neat and tidy and this week A. Noni Mouse’s photo was rather inspiring, wasn’t it?

Just For You

I’m making you a feast!  All you have to do is sit back, relax, and here, take this glass of wine.  Go sit on the patio with your book and I’ll call you when it’s ready.  No wait, It’s beautiful, We’ll eat outside.  You don’t have to do a thing.  Well, maybe set the table?  I’ll do the rest.  Consider this a thank you for all you do for us.  We don’t take you for granted, Mom.  Oh, and later, I’m going out with my friends, okay? But don’t worry, I’ll do the dishes when I get back. I Promise.

    This reminds me of that Naked Eyes song from the eighties, Promises Promises. And of course with all those melodious promises comes the realization that they CAN in fact, do dishes. There isn’t some medical condition that is preventing them from doing the dishes, after all. And it makes you go “Huh” . . .

    I dig what you dished up. 🙂

  2. Ha ha, promises indeed! And the person who doesn’t wash the dirty dishes always seems to MAKE so many more when they cook, have you noticed? Somehow using every pot and pan in the house just to make dinner…

      • My current kitchen is so small that my dish drainer counter doubles as my cutting board/prep counter — so I can’t wash dishes until all the cooking is, well, cooking. For me it’s about reducing pots and pans in the first place, by thinking ahead about how to do things in the right order and how to re-use containers, pots, etc. I’m definitely getting better at it, but I still sometimes end up with a whole kitchen of dirty dishes!

    • I’m glad you got the funny from me. I mostly curse when I get home and see the mountains…
      Impossible. I worked today in 104 heat… Was hell on earth. Thankfully, I am off tomorrow but back on Saturday and Sunday – they are calling for thunderstorms and I shall be hoping and praying they come.


    • Mmm hmmm. C’mon over. The beer is cold the pool is cool and, if we are hungry, I’m sure I can scrounge up a frozen pizza… 😉

      Had my Kilkenny and now having a Harp. Darn it. Have to go shopping tomorrow. I’m out!


          • Before I go, are you familiar with the Youtube channel Glen and Friends? They’re a Canadian couple, our age bracket, who experiment with foods and stuff, but they are just plain neat people. Glen is in the food commercial production business. No wonder he does a great video!
