How Lovely by the Lake (FF)

FF - Friday Fictioneers

 "How lovely by the lake!" I thought, settling into a chair on the patio of the rustic inn.

“Think I'll do me a bit of fishing," I decided, and I flung my fishing rod into the water.

"Sir, would you like some quiche?" offered a waiter.  “On the house."

Just then a beautiful woman approached me.

"Excuse me," she cooed,"would you like to spend time with me?”

"Of course!” I responded.

"Great, wanna go to a Trump rally?”

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I woke up screaming.

"What a nightmare!  I'm a Jew, I don't go fishing!  And I hate cheese!

"Only good thing was that girl who liked Trump.  Anyone that clueless would have been putty in my hands!"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Putty in my hands?  In my life, putty  isn't even putty in my hands.  Anyway I don't think I'd really want to spend much time with a woman who'd vote for Trump.  Find me a girl who loves Adlai Stevenson! (Look him up, Millennials!)

You can find your own figurative inn by the lake if you click here and toss the ol' fishing rod into the stories by the other Friday Fictioneers in response to the picture prompt above. None of them will try to hustle you off to a Trump rally.

Me, I'm going back to sleep. "What's that, young lady?  You remember Adlai?  We-l-l-l-l-l ... Good night, all!"

    1. My earliest political memory is going with my father in 1956 to vote for Adlai Stevenson. And one day Adlai will win!

  2. You sure that it's only puddy in your hands, after all it was a dream. Randy

    1. At least you can get the puddy to grow. Anything else would be a dream!

    1. Yes, you can, but you'll have to date a Trump follower.

  9. Very funny. Do you know that 'trump' is a slang word in some places for breaking wind?

  10. Hilarious, Perry. I knew something was wrong when you threw your "fishing rod" into the water. You throw a line, not the whole rod. Unless of course you're angry because you haven't caught a fish. If you wore a ten gallon hat to a Trump rally, you'd probably fit right in. I've noticed that seems to be a popular way to dress at one. :D --- Suzanne

  11. I’ve been single for a while and if the man of my dreams offered to take me to a Trump rally, I believe I would be single a while longer.
