Daydreaming – Friday Fictioneers

Very sneaky, Rochelle!  You go to great lengths to get me to play Friday Fictioneers!  And it worked, too!  If you’re inspired to write a 100-word story based on my photo (thanks for choosing it, my friend), please do so by clicking on the frog below and adding your link.  G’head, it’s loads of fun!

She stepped away from her cottage onto the grass, cool and springy beneath her feet. She lay on a small hill, crossed her feet and interlaced her fingers to cradle her head.  Gazing up at the blue sky, her thoughts drifted with the clouds, dreamily.  What I wouldn’t give to be able to ride one of those clouds or up and fly to diverse destinations with the birds.  To experience new cultures, go on adventures, to see—


Right on her forehead.

“Thanks a lot!” she shouted to the now empty sky.  “This better be a sign of good luck!”

  1. OMG, this is hysterical! I can’t stop laughing. Yeah, it means good luck if it didn’t land in your eye as you were looking up to see the bird.

    But goose poop….now that’s downright nasty.

    Thanks for the laugh you crazy girl. Love your sense of humor. Never saw that ending coming.

    • Yay! That makes my day. So glad you laughed.

      Goose poop is so gross. We have sooo many around here and walking on paths is rather like an obstacle course.

      So glad you enjoyed 😉

  3. Clearly it is better to be up there than down here, eh? I love the picture by the way. Great prompt. It’s funny, I looked it up on Google street view and if you look at the building on Rue St. Marc, it looks like this, but the view on Maisonneuve is an older one before the mural was painted. It’s like a magic trick going between the two of them. 🙂

    • Methinks you are right, David! And thank you. Glad you thought it funny. I cropped out the street signs so kudos to you for finding it. It is on the corner of de Maisonneuve and St-Marc (main address on de Maisonneuve).


  4. Hahaha. I had that happen to me once. I was at a picnic gathering and a flock of birds took off. I made a smartarse remark about a bird crapping on me. Moments later splat, square on my head. Perfect timing like being struck by lightning. 😀

  5. Hahaha. Let’s hope it does mean good luck!
    Great photo and fun story.

    I once was having lunch in a city park with a work friend, and a pigeon went right in my hair, maybe my dress, too! I had to walk back to the office to try to clean it up.

  6. Q

    Yanno, they say it’s good luck when a bird decides to do his or her business on your person. That’s because it’s really not a decision as much as it is a one in a million shot, literally speaking. I guess people like the idea of turning bad luck into good by saying, the chances weren’t great so maybe the luck has to be? I don’t know if I buy it.

    Moral of the story? Daydream INSIDE.

    • They are wretched! Once, when we were at the beach, a seagull snatched the sandwich right out of my nephew’s hand! Much better than shitting on him…
      And that never happens on the day of the lotto. Why is that?


  7. I’m glad Rochelle keeps dragging you out of hiding, you always serve up such delights. I think we’ve all received the gift of a passing bird – I know it’s supposed to be good luck, but I’ve always thought that was crap.

  9. BTW, Montreal seems like an option for this summer. 😉
