The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS July 20/19

Frame by John W.Howell © 2019

“Doggone it.”

“What’s the problem?”

“This frame.”

“What about it?”

“It doesn’t go with the room.”

“The painting is fabulous.”

“Yeah, but the frame is gold.”

“So?”

“The room is nickel.”

“Change the frame?”

“Might be easier to change the room.”

“How could that be?”

“I hate this room.”

“You just finished it. I thought you loved it.”

“I did while I was doing it. Now I think I’ve changed my mind. In fact, let’s sell the house.”

“I say we put that picture and frame away for a while. Maybe come back to it later.”

“It won’t help.”

“You’ll be in a better frame of mind.”

“Who can I frame when they find you dead?”

“You’re talking crazy.”

“I need a margarita.”

“Wouldn’t it be easier to just ask for one.”

“I needed to frame the justification.”

“It’s okay. I’ll have one too.”

“Oh, good. Know what?”

“What?”

“That picture and frame look okay now.”

“Another problem solved by soothin’ syrup.”

  9. Haha! “Let’s sell the house” … That’s so me. Even if something as simple as changing a frame would do. I’m always ready to move. Guess I need some of that soothing syrup. Another great post. Loving the Saturday morning laughs.

  10. To borrow from Clemenza in the Godfather.

    Leave the frame, take the margarita.
