The Friday Fictioneers, are a group of writers that come together, once a week, to share stories they have written based on a photo prompt. Go HERE to read or submit or your own story, or click on the little blue guy under my story.  Those not familiar with the various parts of stringed instruments may miss a few references, but it’s what I went with this week.



“Stop fiddling around!” She squealed, “you’re gonna scratch my fingerboard!”

“Will you shut your F-Hole already,” he growled, “I didn’t ask to be here!”

“And…quit staring at my bridge, look at my head stock when talking to me!”

“Hey, why don’t we head to the bass bar and get to know each other?” He hummed.

She had to admit he vibrated her stings a bit, but he was so young.

“Aw, come on, you turn my keys with a glance and you know it.

She spun on her end pin and saddled up for a date. Weeks later they moved into The Monticello.

    Very clever…well done

  2. I was smiling through out but the Monticello line made me COL (chuckle out loud).

  3. kz says:

    haha this is very clever! ^^ enjoyed it

  4. tedstrutz says:

    Clever, Clever, Clever… humming and vibrating, indeed.

  5. rich says:

    that’s the second story with “f-hole.” this is gonna be a gooooood weeeeek! well done.

  6. dmmacilroy says:

    And a few months later a violin was heard crying. I love this piece. Well done with the double bass parts.



  7. Dear Turnip,
    And a loud groan is heard in Missouri. Just remember, there’s always room for cello. Cute story.

  8. claireful says:

    hah! Very clever. Curious to know if there were any instrument parts that you couldn’t squeeze in??

  9. I didn’t get the Monticello line until I noticed the italics. Glad you put them in for slow people like me 🙂

  10. Hi Turnip,
    Aw, I bet they’ll make sweet music together. Show you can cococt a love story out of most anything. Do turnips fall in love? Ha! Ron

  11. Sarah Ann says:

    This is great. So much fun. 🙂

  12. LOL, she commented in her musical voice. Just the right tune. The humorists are out in force this week and doing their side proud.


  13. muZer says:

    The last line got me. A fun story and a delightful conversation.

  14. wmqcolby says:

    Hahahaha! A great ending line. Now we know where fiddles come from.

  15. elappleby says:

    Monticello made me groan – but it was a happy groan (if there is such a thing). A fun tale! 🙂

  16. billgncs says:

    I liked this, but this was the second F-hole reference which forces me to ask, is there an a-hole?

  17. Tom Poet says:

    This was a fun piece. A lot of comedy coming out of this photo prompt…A woman who will saddle up for a date is all right in my book! Thanks for the laughs!

  18. writeondude says:

    Looks like I’m not the only one spending a little more time on research this week 😉 Fun story, well done.

  19. rgayer55 says:

    I like to laugh, and you gave me a good one. Well done, Ms Turnip

  20. Clever, very clever indeed and it’s great to have a wry smile as I imagine how the ‘date’ may have gone 🙂

  21. brudberg says:

    Very laughable, it was a picture meant for puns. Well done

  22. I loved it! I like the “She had to admit he vibrated her stings a bit, but he was so young.” You did a fine job humanizing the instruments.

  23. Debra Kristi says:

    Made me chuckle. I was touched by the same like as Bumble. Very clever. Great piece.

  24. deanabo says:

    This is very cute! loved it.

  25. Loved the play on words. favorite line: “She had to admit he vibrated her stings a bit, but he was so young.”
