Loafed Out (Microfiction Monday #70)

“Nice view that Susan’s given us this week.”

“I dunno, dude, they’re kinda over-dressed for my taste.”

“Dude, your taste is in … oh, never mind. I was talkin’ ’bout the view of nature.”

Exactly, dude. I just wish they were a bit more natural.”

“Riiight, dude. And what makes you think you’d have any better luck than that dude up against the tree there?”

“Better plannin’.”

“Better plannin’? You?!

Look, dude. Can’t you just hear the loser …?

A loaf of bread, a jug of wine … and three of her friends. Damn you, Omar Kháyyam!

I don’t give her no options!

“You’re right, dude!”

“Of course I am.”

“One look at you, the chick sees that you ain’t no option and flies away!

    Not to correct the dudes but that’s from Omar Kháyyam, not Kahlil Gibran.

  2. Lol. You always manage to make me laugh. Hey, I didn’t see Susan’s link for this week’s MM. Do you???

      Thanks, Elizabeth. No, I’ve not seen the new MM prompt yet. Today’s post was on autotimer based on when MM appeared the previous two weeks …

  3. Peggy says:

    Again; you had me laughing at the first “dude,”

  4. Sonia says:

    lol Funny, as always

  5. Melanie Sherman says:

    Very fun. Good job.

  6. Pat says:

    I can always hear those dudes talking in my head as I read your posts.

    Maybe if he had read the book….

  7. I don’t always understand them, but they are always entertaining…

    And I do find this one very funny. It reminds me of my daughter describing the scene at school the other day. A new boy has just transferred in from overseas (State Dept kid). One of her friends has “Staked her claim” and any other girl who talks to him is considered no longer a friend. So he can’t figure out why none of the other girls in the group talk to him. Except my daughter, who has a boyfriend, and is just trying to be nice and help the guy adjust to a new school. Apparently now she’s on the “you are toast” list. Her answer was “whatever.”

  9. Celine says:

    Haha…and then the wildnerness was paradise!
    Well done.

  10. Reading your conversations always make me wonder if the two dudes ‘really’ talk that way….loved it!

    Why do you always need to cloak your 140 characters in 140 words of explanation? Most of the comments are better than your MFM.
