Friday Fictioneers – Poohsticks

12 December, 2014

My inbox pings with that extra zing every wednesday because it knows Rochelle is sending the weekly FriFic prompt. And it’s not just me that receives it, literally billions of people on this planet and many others are all signed up to this regular dose of inspiration. Here’s the latest pic of the week:


And if you keep reading then quite soon your eyes will stumble on my 100 words.



“I don’t understand,” said Pooh, a pensive paw scratching his head, “We play Poohsticks all day, use up all the sticks we can find, but the next day they’re back at the bridge.”

“I think you’ll find,” Owl informed him, “that some helpful soul captures them further down the river and carries them back upstream at night.”

“What a dull job,” Eeyore sighed, “and pointless too. Never ending.”

“Oh hush Eeyore,” said Christopher Robin, “I think it’s wonderful that someone does that for us.”

Tigger leapt up from the grass, chose an especially good stick. “Another game anyone?” he beamed.

  1. Dear TRG,

    My brains are speechless. A nice riff on some well established characters. Well done.



  2. Dear RG,

    “A good story,” said Eeyore, “if it is a story…which I doubt.”

    Truly a cute story. I always loved Winnie the Pooh…even before Disney took over.



  3. A nice trip down memory lane there. Thank you.

  4. Nice. Who doesn’t love Pooh and Tigger and friends? Wonderful story and a pleasant surprise.

  5. I haven’t read then in years either so I really enjoyed this.

  6. What fun! Poohsticks! Love this take. Thank you!

  7. Dear TRG, Great story. Eeyore is cute and right! Too bad that the Poohsticks keep coming back. Cute! Nan 🙂

  8. I love how I’m catching up with FF and my random number generator is giving me cute, cheery stories. Great take on both the prompt and an old favourite. Poohsticks should indeed be in the Olympics.

  9. That’s lovely. Got the voices right too.
    I see an original drawing of CR & Pooh on the bridge has just been sold. £314 500. That would sort out my overdraft!

  10. Oh lovely. My grandson is a big fan of Winnie and his friends. He listens to the stories on his Ipad in bed at night, and we all get to enjoy the wonderful voices with him. I love your story.

  11. What a perfect inspiration.. You captured the voices of the characters perfectly.
