Friday Fictioneers – Lasting Impression

ff010513“It’s a beaut ain’t she?” said Matt Honeyball to his ever doting wife Mirabelle.

“Wha’r is it Matty babe?”

“What is it? Hellooo? Err, umm…it’s a genuine Gaudi” he said pausing to read the plaque. “…built ’em all over Barcelona. Famous he was. One of the world’s most famousest architents that’s for sure!”

“Wow. Clever Matty.”

Matt and Mirabelle had seen it all. The Pyramids, the Coliseum and now a Gaudi masterpiece.

As the smell of grilling burgers and French fries wafted across their nostrils it was time to go. Yes siree. Las Vegas was a hell of a city.

This is my entry in this week’s 100 word writing challenge over at Friday Fictioneers.

      Thanks Parul. This one still makes me chuckle and I’ve read it about 20 times since I wrote it this morning. More from Matt and Mirabelle to come I think…

      Thanks. Haven’t quite decided where the Honeyballs come from yet. Anywhere is a possibility other than Vegas or Barcelona!

    I like it. Could be one of the theme buldings at Disneyland or something. Or Vegas, definitely. I like how they see themselves as so cultured, having “traveled” to all those exotic….hotels. Heh.

    Ah, that Las Vegas. I like your twist at the end to put your characters in Sin City. And a neat job with their manner of speaking — adds a nice flavor to the story (like grilled burgers and French Fries).

      Cheers Carrie. Never actually been to Vegas. Will have to go sometime and see if they really do have a genuine Gaudi πŸ™‚

    I agree, if there’s not a Gaudi knock off in Vegas there oughta be. Fun take on the prompt.

      Think sometimes the best humour is based in truth. Things are funny which aren’t meant to be. I’m intrigued about Las Vegas now. I will need to visit.
