Chateau by the Mediterranean
"What a timeshare!"
I couldn't believe it! A chateau by the Mediterranean for a week!
The rental agent was showing me a picture of a chateau by the Mediterranean. For a week!
"Sylvan, are you sure I can afford this?!" I sputtered.
"Sure you can, Mr. Block," said Sylvan. "Long as you can rub two nickels together."
Well, that much I could do. Though I probably couldn't rub them together long enough for them to become sexually excited.
"There's just one thing, Mr. Block," added the agent.
"It's a package deal. You'll be sharing it with all the other Friday Fictioneers and their families, including the ones who don't regularly post. A total of over 500 people, including multiple screaming children."
"Oh, well, I guess that's okay ...."
"Oh, and Mr. Block?"
"You'll be sleeping on the pile of rubble."
Still sounds like a pretty good deal to me! What do you say, Fellow Fictioneers?

I take that company in an any environment :-)
Well I'd be up for a pile of rubble and a wild imaginative literary crowd.
Great! That's one down.
You can be in charge of the screaming children.
Just don't get any designs, Dana C. Thomas, on MY pile of rubble!
Packing my bags as we speak!
Better pack light. We're limited to a toothbrush and an air mattress for the rock pile.
Aha! Now I know who "Sylvan" is. LOL
Sylvan's also pushing more towards a time share in Sydney, but he has no idea how hot it is there!
Is that Barney Rubble? Yubba, dubba, do!!
Better leave the jokes to me, Janet. Yubba, dubba, don't! :)
a Friday Fictioneers party! oh that would be awesome. i wouldn't even mind hanging out in a pile of rubble
Such an accommodating host! :)
500 people? Impressive stats. Let me know when and where? Now it will take me all day to get the two nickles out of my head.
What are the dates again? Long haul for me. Might have to Skype it in.
Sounds like a great idea, a Friday Fictioneers reunion. I assume Rochelle is paying, right?
On a totally scientific note, how long does it take to get a couple nickels sexually excited? Just curious...
Don't think we have a choice. We get the main house for a couple of hours, but we have to clean.
Of course! Now as to your share, Sandra ....
Ok, I'm booked (but I bring a tent so I can crash on the beach)...
When and where? Maybe another prompt will tell.
Yeah, what a life for me, being envious of two nickels ...
Skype might be more fun, and a lot cheaper!
Probably a lot faster than me at my age!
That's another thing. Toxic waste dump on the beach. We have to help with the remediation.
You just keep rubbing those Ben Franklins together, darling -- I'm sure there'll be a magic spark before too long.
For him, of course, Franklin was a sex machine. Got to find me some Franklins to check it all out.
Oh, as if Perry Block has a monopoly on humor. That cracks me up!
Try rubbing a couple of Sacajawea dollars together and see if that works for you. You are supplying the cocktails, right Perry?
This has got to be one of the wildest you have come up with. You have broken the audience wall, and now we are inside your story! How crazy is that?????
Been rubbing the Sacajawea dollars together .... sure beats rubbing Benjamins together .... certainly beats nickels ... great idea, Russell ..... buy you all the drinks you want!
I did not! I think you broke the audience wall. Now clean it up!
I'm bringing my own cot. No rubble for me. And hands off my nickels......
That'd be one absurdly strange journey. I'd offer to fix your broken audience wall, but I'm a tech guy so I'm not of much use in framing or hanging drywall. If you need some cat5 run or maybe a wireless access point setup once you get that wall back up I'm your guy.
See you at the chateau. Save me a spot on that rubble. I'm hoping to get enough rubs to get sexually excited. No, wait, that's my orgy weekend. Ron
I agree with above, this is one of your zaniest! I guess you got excited at thought of a chateau, so much so that you wanted to share it with all of us. You're swell, Perry, and so thoughtful. When do we leave?
No worry about me reaching for your nickels. I've rubbed mine so long they've turned into quarters!
Better if you offered to fix my broken blog which only gets any kind of decent response on Friday Fiction days. But thanks anyway, Adam.
I knew that, Ron. That's why I scheduled it that weekend, so there'd be one fewer at the chateau. Incidentally, however, I''m coming with you!
We're here now. Where the hell are you?!
That last comment of yours made me laugh, but I anyway, I am here to ask your permission to change my title of last week's story to Flight Club, as pun I totally missed, but now everytime I look at my blog, I want to see Flight Club there instead of my puny Fight Club.
That's all. Hope you are having a good weekend, Lindaura
You don't need my permission to change it but I will ask a favor. NO, NOT THAT KIND OF FAVOR as you are an ocean away! Just join my blog under "Join this site." I have done it on yours cause I'm that kind of a right guy. That way I get one follower closer to 200, which even though it means nothing and I am still really unpopular satisfies my sense of feng sui. Thanks!
This was a delight to read! Off to pack my bag!
Do they pay for the trip and the food?
Better hurry, plane leaves in ten minutes!
