Friday Fictioneers – The Hey Man

28 February, 2014

It’s a simple deal. Once a week, Rochelle presents us with a prompt pic, and we create 100 words each. Here is the wonderful pic for today:


and these are my 100 words:


I never knew his real name. When I was little, I thought they called him the Hey Man because that’s what he yelled in greeting when he trundled his tractor past us. It was only later I learned that the stacks we sat on when he gave us lifts were Hay and delivering it was his job.

Today it would be illegal for him to smoke while driving. Back then it was unwise for him to smoke what he smoked while doing anything. Especially reversing. Near the boss’s car. Or dating the boss’s daughter.

I wonder where he is now.



Ooooooh look, I’ve written a second FriFic this week! Click here to read it!

  1. I liked the difference between today’s ‘illegal smoking’ and the pasts ‘unwise smoking’.
    A great take on the prompt.

  2. Haha, this made me laugh. Poor Hey Man, the boss must’ve made him into Goodbye-Man!

  3. Whoops! He’s probably chillin’ somewhere…

  4. I loved the ending. Where is he now indeed…

  5. Dear RG,

    So much said in so few words. Well done.



  6. Well-written and humorous story. He seemed to get on the bosses bad side over two things he dearly loved, his daughter and his car.

  7. Well told, sounds like he was unwise in many ways 🙂

  8. Childhood memories…
    Well done!
