“Happy Saturday to you.”
“Uh, oh. Trouble in promptsville.”
“How’d you guess?”
“Long face. Since you are not a horse, I think you have the Linda Hill blues.”
“This prompt is trouble.”
“There are three different uses of check/cheque/Czech.”
“Why are you repeating yourself?”
“No. There are three different words. Here I’ve written them down. See?”
“Oh, now I get it. This is no big deal. Just make up a story using all three.”
“Easy for you.”
“Okay, for example. The big Czech walked into the bank to check on his cheque.”
“Hey. This is not my prompt. It’s yours.”
“Fine. I think I’ll do a new one.”
“Go for it.”
“The Czeck asked the clerk if he could cash his cheque. She went to check with the manager. She came back with a sad face. “I’m sorry, but that cheque is drawn on a Czeck bank, and we have to check for the availability of funds.”
“What kind of check do you need to make on the Czeck cheque?” he said.
“The Czeck cheque needs a check on whether or not there is money to cover it in the account.”
“How long will the Czech cheque check take?”
“The Czech cheque check will take overnight.”
“I can’t wait that long. The Czech cheque check needs to done in time for dinner.”
“You can eat at my place. Then you won’t have to worry about the Czech cheque check.”
“That won’t work. I need the Czech cheque check done so I can pay for a hotel ro—”
“Okay hold on right there.”
“What kind of story is going to turn out to be.”
“It’s a romance.”
“Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid of. You have a very warped view of romance. I think you can wrap this up.
“They lived happily ever after.”
“Once they kicked their drug habit.”
“That will be fine.”
“And got out of jail.”
