A FRIEND IN NEED… FridayFictioneers


A FRIEND IN NEED… a drabble for FriFic

A telephone rings on the Northside of Chicago…

“Ethel, it’s Cheryl.”

“Cheryl!  What’s wrong?”

“What do you mean what’s wrong?  Nothing’s wrong.”

“But, you never call me.”

“Well, I’m calling you now.  Is your power out?”

“No. I thought you said nothing was wrong?  I know what this ‘nothing wrong’ call is all about.  Your power is out and Survivor is on tonight and you’re afraid you’ll miss it.”

“Okay, yes!  Aren’t you the detective?”

“I guess we always call when we want something, Cheryl, and I want anchovies on the pizza you are bringing with you tonight.”

“Wait a minute.”

“Just on my half will be fine.”

  1. What a delightful take on the prompt! Light-hearted and oh so fun.

  2. Except my friend was in shanghai and the great firewall of China didn’t let her watch the season finale of american idol. So she called me and we watched. Lol.

  7. Great job Ted. This really gave me a chuckle!

  8. I’m like that. We cut the satellite cable last year, so now when something’s on that we want to watch we invite ourselves over to the neighbor’s house. I hope you like jalapeños.

  9. Dear Ted,

    I hope one of them has a DVR. Personally I’m an anchovy pizza fan. Nicely done.



  10. Methinks they know each other a little too well. Please no anchovy on my pizza.
