Friday Fictioneers: GAME TIME…


GAME TIME… a Drabble for FriFic

“Okay, I’ll take the iron.”

“Wait a minute, Ethel! I’m the iron.  You know I’m always the iron!”

“That’s why I’m going to be the iron, Cheryl.  I’m sick and tired of you being so bossy,  I’m going to be the iron today.”

“Oh please.  My game, I get to choose, and I choose the iron.  You can be the car.  The iron is my good luck charm, that’s why I always win.”

“Oh for God’s sake, you don’t always win!  You know what?  I’m going to go get the candlestick or maybe the rope, we’ll see how you do then.”


My triumphant return to Friday Fictioneers features my favorite game piece… Flat Iron- Monopoly piece..

Great photo choice, Rochelle (her own this time).   I love looking at shadow boxes and the memories they contain.  To see more stories based on this week’s photo prompt… Click on FriFic.

  5. Dear Ted,

    Glad you see you’re back in the game. Alas, those pieces are all that’s left of our Monopoly game. I might have had something to do with that 😉 My son blitzed me every time we played and that was after hours of torture, bankruptcy and jail time.
    Good story.



  6. Hi Ted,
    Or maybe they could play hangman, or Russian Roulette. But that could lead to nobody to play games with in the future. Good realistic dialog. Funny how arguments can develop over totally meaningless issues. Ron

  7. I love this snippet of dialogue! So realistic! 🙂

  8. Ted I enjoyed this. Most of us have been party to a Monopoly game piece battle. I for one always preferred clue so in that vein your story kicked butt. This Miss Scarlett will bring her knife to the board.

  9. […] Cheryl fans out there… They made a guest appearance at Friday Fictioneers last week…  Friday Fictioneers: GAME TIME … in case you would like to pay them a […]
