CHEF BO…a drabble for FriFic

On the Northside of Chicago, a telephone rings…

“Hi Cheryl, it’s me, Ethel.”
“What’s up?”
“One word, Cheryl, Chef Bo.”
“That’s two words. What’s Chef Bo?”
“A new Chinese restaurant on Irving! We have to go.”
“You know I don’t like Chinese, Ethel.”
“Well, you like Birds Nest Soup, Cheryl.  And I’ll bet they have barbecued pork.”
“Liked, I found out how they make it, disgusting. I like the pork and I guess fried rice is okay. What’s with the Chef Bo obsession?”
“I have a coupon.”
“Of course you do, Ethel! If you had one to Hell we’d be crossing the river Styx. Okay, but you’re buying.”

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.”

Trifextra #61: IT’S THE SIZE THAT COUNTS

“Ethel, there isn’t room to swing a cat!”

“I like my Smart Car. It fits me just fine. But, I’m not the one who could stand to lose a few.”

“Well, I never!”

     THE IDIOM

That’s what  the Trifectas asked us to use this time.  Here, I’ll let them tell it:

“This weekend we’re asking for exactly 33 words including an idiom somewhere within.  Examples of idioms include – add fuel to the fire or wear your heart on your sleeve.  You can find more examples and a definition of idiom here.  Good luck! ”
