Friday Fictioneers: 28th July

Phones have changed an awful lot since Alexander Graham Bell hit the jackpot with his invention.

Listed as a ‘Unique Feature’, it hung like some kind of urinal on the wall.
The No Smoking sign was a neat touch.
Whoever owned the property before had a sense of humour.
Its use was certainly not as originally intended but few would guess what it was now.
The kids would love it.

“Can we use it Daddy? Can we? You promised!”
Sam gave his sons a quarter each to use ‘their personal phone’.
They lifted the receiver and gently put the coin in the slot.
The little bell jingled, and the candy was dispensed into the tray beneath.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    That’s a good use for all the old pay phones lying around somewhere! Good fun.

    They could have found worser uses for those relics. Well done

  5. Excellent! There is a red phone box near me that dispenses coffee. I don’t think it squirts it in your ear, at least I hope not!
