"That's absolutely the worst contracting job I've ever seen, Mr. DiPhillipo!"
"Whaddya mean, Mr. Block? I got everything done as you asked."
"Look at that wallpaper! It's faded, it's shredded, the design looks like fleas copulating!"
"You don't like abstract art I take it, Mr. Block?"
"The banister is just a hunk of old rotted wood!"
"It's early American."
"And what about these two gaping holes in the wall?!"
"Extra storage space. Whaddya want, Mr. Block? I'm a contractor and I showed up!"
"OMG, you're right! How much do I owe you?"
Not only is Mr. DiPhillipo the man who showed up, but I also showed up this week for the Friday Fictioneers with a very concise and well-constructed 93 words in my weekly entry in response to the picture prompt above.
Click right here and the other Friday Fictioneers will show up as well, each with his or her own unique interpretation of the prompt.
Now I'd love it if you'd join me in enjoying my new basement! Hope you like drafts, leaky ceilings, and abstract art.
