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?
