Friday Fictioneers – DriveThru

14 August, 2015

I feel sorry for our proto-humanoid ancestors. Not only did they have to live in caves with fairly rudimentary heating / lighting and have to avoid being eaten by sabre-toothed mammoths or wooly tigers, but they also has no concept of days of the week. How would they have known what day to check their emails for Rochelle‘s prompt pic?


Or when it was time to read everyone else’s 100 words? Luckily, we in the modern era are fully aware of Wednesdays and Fridays and every time each of the comes round we can all enjoy participating in FriFic.

I went off on a bit of a tangent from the pic this week. There is a connection of sorts, but not much of one. Here goes…


Mirren! Decouple from that holostation and get ready!

For Berners-Lee’s sake, Mum! Do I have to go? Can’t I stay home?

No. Grandpa likes seeing us all on his birthday. His grand-daughter especially.

We can UpMeet if he wants to see me.

So we’re going to McDonalds, just like when he used to when he was younger.

But it’s so old-fashioned there. I can’t believe we’re going to a Drive-Thru in a car. Why can’t we downprint our burgers like everyone else?


And he’ll be wearing jeans!


He’s so embarrassing. So twenty-first century.

You’re coming! Get yourself ready!

  1. My granddad wears jeans – how embarrassing. He even tries to dance sometimes!

  2. You have no idea what you’ve started here. This is excellent. We came out of the cave. For what? Impassioned post forthcoming. Thank you, sir.

    • I couldn’t say *exactly* why we emerged from the caves but have you ever tried getting a signal on your phone in one of those places? Just sayin…

  3. I can see the old gaffer with his jeans among all the spandex jumpsuits.. Ouch so embarrassing…

  4. This is brilliant. I especially love ‘For Berner-Lee’s sake’. I bet they curse with ‘Gates!’ and admire with ‘this is such a perfect Jobs’ in the 22nd century.

  5. This is very fun. Great dialogue. Not sure I’d like a down-printed burger.

  6. Lovely story, good job. So typical of teenagers. and hey even old men look good in jeans! 🙂 at least mine does!

    • Thanks Yolanda.
      Teenagers always mistake what’s fashionable for what looks good. I know I did in my day and I’m sure they will be the same in the next century…

  7. I#m a grandmother already and yes, I’m probably embarrassing. Excellent 100 words.

  8. And he’ll be wearing jeans!…lol

  9. Mirren is so right. Why can’t they just holograph each other into a virtual McDonalds? Great story, love that teenager with a mind of her own.
