Friday Fictioneers: Record Cloaking…

Hello Fans!

Thanks to amusing events beyond my control today I finally think I may be able to try to write something wry for the game this week, hosted by Rochelle, the queen of Wednesday Morning Fiction Prompts, the picture provided by Ted Strutz, a wonderfully exciting name I think you’ll agree, he’s probably a racing car driver who fixes all his own engines, a man’s man. Anyway, thinking caps on;

On My Marks…

Get Set…


He’d tried everything, but her workstation in the study on the first floor at the front of the house offered her the perfect position to see when the postman arrived. 

If Weekly Record interception was impossible, the Postie was under strict instructions to drop any at Louises at number 1, a monthly bottle of Chablis was all she asked. 

But his cassette rack was exponentially expanding and he was finding it harder to disguise the postal plunder, until someone at the label had a quiet word and realised a genius solution to save the music collector the wrath of their partners…

Well there we are, a 100 word story of what the record collector faces every day of his or her life, to a lesser or greater extent! Enjoy…


      • I know–me too, I grew up calling them “records” or “albums,” and I still do. But the word “records” these days is less recognizable to the younger generation in the sense in which we used it. Although there does seem to be a resurgence of interest in the old recordings. I see the Walmart even sells portable record players now 🙂

  1. Dear Shrawley,

    I confess, it took trolling through the comments to get this one. When I went back it was clearer. My confusion was the wife’s “her” and Louise’s “her”. Quite the ruse he has going on to fuel his addiction. 😉




  2. Clever you – forcing us to read twice to get the gist 😉 However, does he really think she won’t notice the collection expanding? He will get caught, despite the shenanigans he has working between the postie and Louse 😉
    Fun one, Shrawls!
