flash fiction! I couldn’t resist
A story in 42 words
My door, painted red with a large brass knob, appeared in the chapel where family and friends gathered to say good-bye.
Floating close to the ceiling, conversations about me. I eavesdropped.
Procrastination is a hard habit to break. I must depart. Maybe
Very cute!Possibly I would do the same 😉 Definitely a hard decision 😀 Enjoyed this !
who could resist? glad you enjoyed
I love the ending…and the red door!
I’ve been watching too many ghost movies lately lol – the ending came at the last minute – it often does
How sad they’re at her funeral but I would most definitely be eavesdropping.
of course – but would you take the door?
Not sure. That’s a hard question.
of course it is – do you watch Being Human?
No, never heard of it.
How cute!! That would be a tough decision!
yep – see above
Very cool. I like! 🙂
Nice to see you Mae!
I like this. Am I off, or is this about eavesdropping at your own funeral?
you are correct. But it’s also about taking the door to the “other side” or staying around to listen in. I watch Being Human – so that’s where I got the idea
Now I have to watch that show!
you do – it’s very creative
I love the idea of procrastination being a hard habit to break, even in that circumstance.
yep – my mother was a procrastinator and I always thought she’d be late to her own funeral. She wasn’t cause I planned it
Thank you for the shiver chuckle!
any time lol
I like this a lot. Not sure I would want to know what people said about me!
you’re prob right but it’s what the fingers wrote
I’d eavesdrop too. Great take on the prompt!
Ha! I immediately thought of Being Human with the door. Great take on the question, though – I loved it. Thanks for gargleblasting!
yea! someone watches it !
Fun! The red door is such a great visual to anchor the rest of the piece to.
Thank you for that!
what a haunting post! (but well written!) it reminds me of a rachmaninoff piece that my piano teacher told me, where when you listen to the song, you can hear the struggle of a man, buried alive in his coffin after the funeral. *shiver*
What a unique and fab comment!!
Should I stay or should I go. Guess it depends on how they are talking about me!
If that ever happened to me, it would go all Jerry Springer up in that place! Very creative answer.
explain please Jerry and I aren’t acquainted….
Jerry springer is a ridiculous talk show host that invariably gets involved in custody fights and furniture throwing.
ah – so – what furniture would be thrown? or would he be able to see the ghost?
I meant if I could hear what was said at my own funeral, I would be stirring up some drama! Sorry, I didn’t mean to be obtuse.
aw now I get it. It was me obtuse not you – thank you
