Third Time’s a Charm – Friday Fictioneers

‘Tis Wednesday and, she who loves all things purple, and keeps all us all afloat, has chosen a picture from Jennifer Pendergast for this week’s Friday Fictioneers.  Once I saw it, I could not help but want to close up my date trilogy started last year.  Should you desire a refresher, just click on the links in that follow, to see why I went here after going there and there.  No need, of course, but do click on my fancy-dining frogs below to be brought to the linky-thingy to add your very own 100-word story inspired by this lovely image.  Now sure how?  Rochelle’s post will do the ‘splaining of the hows and whys of playing along.

Take a foodie break in Pas de Calais - The Good Life France

Wow, this is pretty snazzy!

Anything is better than the last two joints we went to.

You’ve got that right. Though, I thought my choice was funky.  And now I can see why you said to kick my duds up a notch. Like my suit?

It wasn’t funky it was filthy.  And you look very handsome.  I should request it more often!

Thanks, and don’t push it.  Your choice was the shits.

Can’t argue that one. Once you see it you can’t unsee it.  Like my dress?

Let’s forget the past.  You look very sexy.

Shall we go in?

  1. The graffiti dining area is terrific! I wouldn’t be eating because I would be LMAO!

    The hanging centerpiece is absofuckinglutely amazing!

    Sounds like this couple have been around the block together a few times.

    • The graffiti terrace was way better than the toilet tables but yanno…

      Isn’t that insane?

      I am absofuckinglutely pleased you enjoyed my couple… who yes, are the perfect snarky couple. 😉

      Thank you, Ginger

    • Dear Rochelle,

      I am not worried in the slightest. Of course, I did no look that closely at the chandelier (obviously)… I’m sure it is quite the conversation starter! Glad you laughed.

      Shalom and lotsa love in fancy places.



  2. I got a feeling of a long-term couple trying to reinject some excitement, but if it’s a new couple and they made it to date 3 after the last two, there’s hope yet. I’m glad you felt this chandelier was a step up!

    • I think they are rather new. And yes, if they are willing to go on another after the other two… And, I have to say, I didn’t really look at the chandelier! I looked more at the table with table cloth 😉


  3. Q

    What in the blessed hell IS that thing? And they got dressed up for it? As for as sculptures go, I will give it a 9.5 for originality but I ain’t crazy about the idea of hanging lights from it, much less candles!

    How you got from Point “What’s that?!” to Bahahaha! definitely rates a 10 though.

  4. Now THIS date sounds promising. Hey, when we all “clean up our act,” whether in dress or language or locale, things can look up. FUN story from the photo of the fancy place with the “interesting-trying-to-be-modern” chandelier. 🙂

  5. My take?

    They seem to know each other well. Not much of a filter on either one, but things seem to bounce off or get a fun retort.

    A great trilogy, Dale. Let’s hear it for a tetralogy!

    Nicely done, my friend. 🙂

  6. I’ve been reading the comments about the photo prompt I sent in…just to clarify…it was a ‘Well’….and an underground vessel to carry water…..not a toilet… I’d never seen anything like it and it had a short story written all over it…so it had to be shared. So funny that it looked like a loo to everyone, though.

    Good story Dale, as we say here in Australia about our Aldi stores…Good. Different!
