Not All About the Wine – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday, my peeps!  Yes, Wednesday can often mean Friday Fictioneers – we do like to twist your minds with that one.  This week, our fearless leader, Rochelle, has snagged her own pic as prompt.  How do you like them apples?  Well, I do. And if you do, too, why don’t you write your own 100-word story with beginning, middle and end and link it to the lovely frogette below.  G’head, it’s fun, not to mention an excellent way to learn how to trim the fat from our writing.

They clinked their glasses with a “Salute!“, a smile, and a sip of wine.  Their regular get-togethers were an important part of each of their lives for various reasons.  The usual “We gotta do this more often” stated by one were always agreed to by the others with a resounding “Yes!

Everyone is so busy and it sometimes takes a valiant effort.  But we make it happen.  For our sanity.

“We should do this in Italy!” said one.

“Ohmygodyes!” the others chimed in.

“Can you imagine?”

“I’d like to more than imagine.”

They all sighed.

“Let’s start planning.”

“For real!”

  1. I, on the other hand, prefer to say “plan it & make it happen”. How fun would that be for a bunch of friends to plan & execution a trip like that. Good friends & good wine has to be a good thing. Love your story.

  2. Q

    Call it their “Italian Job”, only this one would involve a heist involving several vintage selections, and maybe even a few less than vintage selections. Or maybe you could call it “Vintage Point”, where the opening scene shows the spiraling effect of a corkscrew. Either way, the end result will be good feeling. . . which means win-win-win-win-win!

  4. Dear Dale,

    They say every journey starts with one step and a plan. Okay, I added that last part. 😉 I know how much you want to make this a reality. Go for it.

    Shalom and lotsa pasta-making and wine-drinking hugs. (Ciao Bella)

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Yes, they do… and that last part is probably a good thing. Spur of the moment is for the money-endowed.

      Shalom and lotsa amore!



  5. I know that feeling exactly! The last time I got together with my college besties, we all met in Geogia wine country (we live in MA, AL, FL, OH, PA!) and the words in your dialogue were exactly ours. CHEERS!

  7. Regular get-togethers with friends is a wonderful way to keep your sanity 🙂 and planning a getaway sounds like a recipe for keeping the doldrums at bay especially in these uncertain days. Cheers to your lovely story, Dale, and your plans to visit Italy. Happy holidays to you and yours!!

    • Yes, this is so very true. However, I like to think if we keep talking, we might actually do! Plus, I told the girls to buy themselves a big-ass piggybank and start right away 😉
