Blissfully Bubbly

Friday Fictioneers – Write a 100-word story based on the Photo Prompt image above by  © Na’ama Yehuda

Blissfully Bubbly

I’m new on the job, I replaced a retired 18-year-old Samson.  Her capacity and willingness never faltered to meet the family’s demands. But her belt was frayed and brittle. She had done her last spin.

I’m a modern Front Loader; state-of-the-art, as a matter of fact. I’m computerised, automatic, systematic, and hydromatic. It’s a wonder they don’t call me Greased Lightning. I do ECO too, so I can save the planet.  With so many wash cycles, I can meet every need – within reason; I don’t fold sheets.

So sit back and let me take your load off, bubbles and all.

Thanks for reading

This story is a 100-word version of Bubbly Bliss, printed almost to the day in our local paper…Wednesday, January 24, 2018.

In case systematic and hydromatic seem a bit random in the story… I thought it would be fun to put the washing machine in the same zone as the car in Grease…hence Greased Lightning.

    1. I agree 💯! In my extended version of the story it does mention hiw it doesn’t make coffee but anything is possible with advancing technology lol
      I enjoy putting a voice to things and animals. Thank you for your comments 🙂


    1. Awww thank you! I know, I’d love one too! My front loader isn’t as cheerful as this one lol
      I wondered if the hydromatic was a bit confusing in the story so I thought I’d let Mr T explain it 😉🎤🎶🎵🚘

  1. I just got one of those. It was recalled, but it could be fixed by downloading an update. I can control it with my phone, which seems pointless since I have to go in there to load it. There are literally more settings than I know what to do with. Which one’s wash?
