265. Scenes from the Second Seat on the Right

Note: Strong Language

Wednesday, May 23rd, 6:00pm
Drommen (and Hillary)


Drommen sits at the window. Hillary takes the seat beside him.

Hillary: Hey, how goes it?

Drommen: Well thanks, and you?

Hillary: Ehh, not bad I guess. Same shit.

Drommen nods.

Hillary: I kinda been missing you.

Drommen: Really?

Hillary: (shrugs) Kinda.

Drommen: That’s funny, I’ve kind of been missing you too.

Hillary: What do you say we go out for a coffee or something?

Drommen: Just a coffee?

Hillary: If you want.

Drommen: That sounds nice. Actually, I’ve got something for you.

Hillary frowns.

Drommen: No, not that. It’s something I bought the other day. You can have it if you want it.

Hillary: What is it?

Drommen: It’s a tablet.

Hillary: Like, a computer tablet?

Drommen: Yeah.

Hillary: And you want to give it to me?

Drommen: Sure.

Hillary: You really are a weirdo, aren’t you?

Drommen: (cocks head) I guess.

Hillary: How about we start with a coffee?

Drommen: Okay.

One-Liner Wednesday – It’s a Con-undrum

If I can’t come up with a one-liner for my own prompt, will I go to jail? More importantly, how will I be sentenced?


If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely new badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!
