It’s Terrasse Time! – Friday Fictioneers

Good Wednesday, my peeps!  It’s Friday Fictioneers Day and I could not resist this photo.  It kinda called me to do a certain sequel to my story from a couple weeks ago.  As always, a thank you to Rochelle, our fearless leader, who, while still frolicking in the ocean, still manages to host our weekly shindig.  Should you want to join in and write a story inspired by Roger Bultot’s photo, then click on the frogs below to add your link!

Since you didn’t like my choice last time we got together, you pick.

It was disgusting.  And great, it’s terrasse weather.  I know just the place.

Terrace weather, you mean.

Terrasse, terrace. The important thing is we sit outside.

In the shade?

Yes, in the shade.

Okay.  Meet you there?

7:00 pm.


This is your choice?

Yes, this is my choice.

You thought my tables looked like toilets, what the hell is this?


Art? It’s graffiti!

Stop. The food and drinks are worth it.

They better be.

At least we won’t feel crowded.

Why does that bring me no comfort?

  1. Right. There is art and then there is art. I can hear this happening. Grunge is an art form, is it not? What I like most about this story is I can play either character. It’s the centerpiece of the pic. Well done, my friend.

  2. Nothing like a moment of private time together. I am sure she has something to say and needs a quite spot. a little food and a nice drink should quell the atmosphere and settle the nerves. I wonder what she in going to tell her friend?

  3. Dear Dale,

    If you have anything to do with the food, I’m sure it’s amazing regardless of the venue. 😉 The banter is fun. You say tomAYto. I say tomAHto.

    Shalom and lotsa tasteful hugs,

    • Dear Rochelle,

      Well now… that would be a whole ‘nother story, wouldn’t it? Glad you enjoyed the banter. It’s always fun to write 🙂

      Shalom and lotsa friendly love,



  4. Dale, a few years back – even pre-pandemic – outdoor dining was popping up all over the place, but some might as well be in the streets since they’re that close to “the action.” I’m not comfortable eating next to moving cars. Yet, they all are (still) in better shape than what is pictured here. That food better be worth it! 🙂

    • I know what you mean. Honestly, if I have to worry about my elbows being knocked by a passing car, I’ll pass!
      This was rather dilapidated, I agree. Here’s hoping we get a nice surprise grub-wise!

  5. I like the setting…for the cooling evening breeze. Maybe not for the biting flies. And graffiti doesn’t bother me. But overall I get the idea this place mightn’t be the most hygienic place to eat. Can’t we grab a burger and walk? 😊​😊​😊​

  6. Q

    I would definitely want to check out a setup like this. It probably comes part and parcel with a coffee shop/martini bar that provides round the clock transfusions to the locals. The funky art, the spirited rebellion of it all . . yeah, it’s definitely gotta be in that vein. And yanno, I am always there for a rebellion . . .

  7. Yes, yes, better than the toilet bistro.
    However, it’s graffiti! There is graffiti art, but this is not it. This is throw-ups and tags.
    Just saying….
    Your street art snob pal – Resa xoxoxo
    Cute write, Thunder!
