Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt- Average

 

Today’s prompt as determined by Linda Hill is AVERAGE. If you would like to read more about the Stream of Consciousness Saturday yo can go here: http://lindaghill.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/the-friday-reminder-and-prompt-for-socs-september-2014/ The following is my interpretation of the prompt. It is a story titled “So?”

So by John W. Howell Copyright 2014

“Hey, Frank what yew up to?”

“You a poet?”

“HUH? Wadda ya mean?”

“You, to. You sound like you been in a coffee shop too long.”

“I still don’t get it.”

“That’s cause you are average.”

“Average? What’s that supposed to mean?”

“I am putting out some high-value subtle bits of humor and you aren’t getting it cause you are not a high-level intellect. Just average.”

“Oh, I see what you mean.”

“I’m glad. Makes it easier to get along with me.’

“So Frank since I’m only average I have a request.”

“What’s that?”

“Pay me the thousand bucks you owe me. NOW!”

  4. Noting your reply to Charles, I think it’s safe to say Frank “had” your money but lost it at the track.

  5. I know a Frank in my life, too. A real abrasive character with little scruples other than dinner manners. Hoping the $1,000 is not lost!
