Phone Friends

A story based on the prompt: Fandango’s Provocative Question #181-

How are you doing? Seriously, are you okay? Feeling good? Just okay? Not so great? Why do you think you’re feeling the way you are?

Photographer Unknown

How am I today?

I think I am a little happier then I was the day before yesterday

and a lot less happy then I was this morning.

Thank you for asking.

How I am doing today?

I guess I’m okay, today I got a letter from a friend

I haven’t heard from in ages, it was a real letter handwritten in Ink

I know weird right?


Things are okay

I was going to grow an herb garden on my deck

but I put it off till next year

because I can’t imagine watching things grow,

sad to say all I see from my windows  are things doing the exact opposite of growing.


I’m glad you called, everyone has moved on or moved away- the Covid Migration, you


 So I was feeling a little worn out and tired

but at least there are fun movies on tv to watch

and I have some new books to read and I have to decide- Victoria or New Orleans next



What was that?

It’s me- wait what?

Oh. Yeah. I see. Wrong number. You were trying to call who?

Oh yeah. I know her too. She’s nice. Tell her I sai-

No really.That’s okay. It was nice to hear from you. Have a go-

Hello? Are you there?

Were you there?
