A Problem Shared

Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by PHOTO PROMPT© Rochelle Wiseoff-Fields

A Problem Shared

Bob sat at the end of the bar, away from the noisy crowds.  Ted the barman, finished wiping a glass and walked over to him.  

“Tell me all your troubles, Bob.”

“What?  Why?”

“Because if you tell me yours, maybe I won’t feel so bad about mine.”

“What?  All of them?”

“How many have you got?”

“A few…” Bob pouted, “where do I start?”

“At the beginning…wait, hang on.  How long will it take?  I go for lunch soon.”

“My daughter is marrying a moron, that’s the main one.”

“Matters of the heart are tricky.”

“He’s your nephew, though!”

“Ahh..tricky indeed!”

Thanks for reading

  1. Dear Fleur,

    I had to look up drongo. Although the context in your story made it pretty clear. 😉 I suspect this conversation is going to be longer than Ted bargained for. Two good ones for the price of one. 😀
