Flash Fiction: Talker-much

Flash Fiction: Talker-much

IMG_5930.JPG

We sat by the shore, listening to the sound of waves intermingled with the occasionally far-out voices of travellers, traversing the water in their boats and canoes. It was a peaceful 20 minutes, while it lasted.

“Did you know“, Alexa piped up and I was too mannered to tell her I just wanted to enjoy the moment in silence. Darn good manners.

She went on to spend the next one hour enlightening me on who did what from amongst our friends, her friends and strangers I didn’t even know. It was all I could do to throw the occasional good word in there. They couldn’t all have been that bad.

Finally exhausted for words, she said, So, what’s been going on with you girl“.

Me,” I replied in a high pitched voice, “ohh just the usual. I’ve been fine. The Lord has been good to me!”
There was no way I was going to be the talk of her next conversation with Lord knows who.

  1. So much for a peaceful outing!! Some people just don’t know how or when to just relax and enjoy the moment…especially when they are busy talking about other people. He should go by himself next time or find someone who is less chatty and not so involved in others life. Enjoyed . 😃
