BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

For Friday Flash 55


DRUNKEN DUNCAN

After
several pints
of Real Ale,
Duncan decided he needed
to make a telephone call.
“I wish I’d bought that mobile.”
Luckily, the phone shop was next door.
After making his call, he took a trip
to meet his friend in the Twenty Fifth Century.
That was the pub's name – he’d bought a cheap phone…

  9. I dunno...my VERIZON took me for quite a ride. OH! You meant "time travel"...well, maybe that, too. Sometimes the phone just "spaces out" on me!

    Good post of 55 wds (Does "wds" count as HALF a word?)

  16. Rule of thumb when on a pub crawl - restrict mobile to SOS and incoming calls only. That text to the Boss may not read so funny in the morning! My 55
