Friday Fictioneers: Babette Bladderini Gets a Better Part


Guess what Dear Readers?  I was running in the house yesterday and somebody left a calendar on the floor and I tripped over Tuesday and landed flat on my Wednesday.  Luckily, I was able to hobble to my keyboard and cobble together a 100-word story for this week’s Friday Fictioneers.

Björn Rudberg provided the picture this week.  He’s a really wonderful writer and you can magically materialize over at his blog and check out all his great stuff here   → Yes! I want to magically materialize over at Bjorn’s Blog!

Babette Bladderini Gets a Better Part

The day Babette Bladderini was killed in a landslide was a strange blessing. Babette was born between bullets exchanged by the Bladderini clan and their mortal enemies, the Parcheesi’s.

While being born, a bullet grazed Babette’s head, leaving a permanent part in her hair a little too far to the left, and Babette’s fate was sealed.  She lived her entire existence never knowing a good hair day.

Then, a landslide.  The Parcheesi house slid over the top of Babette’s head, killing her instantly while simultaneously parting her hair right down the middle.

Oh that fate.  Always a day late and a dollar short.

Until next time . . . I love you

  1. Umm…at least she looked good at the wake?

    I only hope mankind can learn from the horrible lessons here. When will we stop hating each other and devote our resources instead to Salon Sciences, so we can all lead happy, well coiffed lives?

  2. Sheer genius!
    This is by far my favorite from you!
    Two things I know I’ve said to you before, but then I suppose we’ll just have to get used to that then, right?

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
