Po’ Dude (Microfiction Monday no. 53)

“So I guess your mission wasn’t successful, dude.”


“Well, dude, I don’t exactly see an auburn-haired dragon queen on your arm or nothin’. I thought you were gonna go rescue her.”

“She never responded, dude! Talkin’ to her was like talkin’ to a picture on the Internet or somethin’.”

“Gee, dude, y’reckon? At least you got a story to tell about her? In 140 characters or less?”

“Of course, dude …

‘My lord? I know Her Majesty is pregnant, and the physicians spoke of her care during her confinement, but this is ridiculous!

How’s that?”


“And you can do better?

“Does a bear …”

“Just tell the story, dude.”

“Bow down to this, then, dude …

‘Sire? Is this really the Fortunato who was looking for the cask of Amontillado?'”


“Amontillado. Don’t tell me you’ve never heard of it?”

“Alright, dude, I won’t. But it sounds like only half the story. Isn’t there a buck to go along with this doe?”

“Dude, that’s po’.”

“Sounds to me like you’re the po’ dude, dude.”

    Don’t go disparaging the po’ or the Poe. I prefer, “The Tell Tale Heart.”

    Actually, my love, I prefer happy endings — like the one I gave my princess!

    I was fascinated with your story, Dude!
    Good job!

  3. The first is my fave. There have been a lot of mean kings, so it is nice to see one who cares, even if he’s going overboard!

  6. Oh my goodness–the poor princess and her ‘confinement’…I hope she survives until the baby arrives!

    Love the way you blend the story into bantering between 2 friends. Have a great week. Cheers!

  7. made me laugh out loud 🙂 (thank God for the Internet–i teach high school English every day, and when i make jokes such as yours they look at me like i’ve lost it)
