FRIDAY FICTIONEERS - WRETCHED REFUSE - MY 100 WORDS BY LINDA PALUND



WRETCHED REFUSE

            “Are you sure we have enough cement in there?”
            “For cryin’ out loud, I’ve been doin’ this for years.”
            “Uncle Frank will be furious if his package winds up back at Red Hook.”
            “Would you quit being a baby and hand me that rope?”
            “Rope, too?”
            “Yeah, the duck tape gets water logged. Nylon rope lasts forever.  Help me hoist her overboard now.”
            “Sheesh, she’s heavy.”
            “That’s the point, knucklehead.”
            “Shouldn’t we say a prayer or something?”
            “I hope you’re kidding. Oh no, don’t start crying. You hated your Aunt Rosa!”
            “Yeah, but she made the best damn meatballs.”

  2. Dear Lindaura,

    Nothing like a burial at sea to bring a tear to the eye. They're certainly going to a lot of trouble to make sure Aunt Rosa stays "buried." Good one.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  4. If that's the content of the meatballs in my story, I think I'm really gonna be sick!

  5. Great dialogue. Poor Aunt Rosa. I hope she left the meatball recipe where it can be found.
