“At least sixty percent of earthlings are mad! They are an intolerant lot. They have forked tongue.”

The Alien father was passing on his knowledge to his son while touring the earth.

“They talk of brotherhood, love, compassion and compatibility but will kill each other to prove their supremacy over who was civilized first , over color, cast, creed, over whose  culture, religion is best, or over as silly an issue as whether one is spoon person, chopstick person, fork person or eats with his hands.

We  never judge people by their food habits but by their credentials.”


( After reading excellent, awesome stories on the prompt I was feeling awkward to post my story but  I have promised to myself that  however silly my story sounds, I will take part in FF . I always appreciate helpful criticism.)

Five Sentence Fiction- rain

Five Sentence Fiction – Rain



The first shower of the season made me nostalgic,  I went out to get some fun and drench as I did in the  childhood.

My neighbors, hearing me sneezing hard poured advises, like what should I do and what should I take.

Mrs. Ayer brought black pepper Rasam, a good cure for cold she informed while Mrs. Gupta was ready with ginger tea and  did not rest until they have made me change my wet clothes and wrapped me with the blanket.

They started telling each other  all sorts of stories about how a simple cold can cause pneumonia or some other dangerous disease if not treated properly and one even recited how her distant relative died after suffering from a simple looking cough and cold.

Between all this hullabaloo one things became clear that everyone is a doctor of some sort and my neighbors, my true friends, loved and cared for me and I, a 70 years old,was not a lonely and abandoned  person in this world.


Friday Fictioneers- 18/7/2014/ OPTIMISM

Posted on

Copyright – Adam Ickes


Word Count 100



Life can be very boring, sitting whole day in a corner, watching workers doing their job, even for a stuffed goat.

Do you believe in animism? I do. I have soul like plants, winds and mountains. I can’t speak but I can understand everything.

When one day one worker scolded her pretty daughter for not studying properly and failing in the same class again and again that if she fails one more time he will marry her off to me.

Since then life has become a bit interesting. I am waiting for her to fail.

Optimism makes life bearable.


First version of FF


I was assigned the most important job in the office to keep  watch on fellow workers.

I knew they despised me and whispered to each other, ‘ see that back biter, sitting there whole day like a stuffed goat, doing nothing and bleating all the time.’

I might have resigned long back but one day I overheard the boss threatening that pretty worker, ‘ look you silly goat! You make too many mistakes. One more mistake and I will make you marry that goat and resign.’

Since then I’m waiting for her to make a mistake. Hope keeps a man alive.


( Which one is better friends. Feedback please.)

Object Lesson

Posted on

Object Lesson-

Sherlock Holmes had his pipe. Dorothy had her red shoes. Batman had his Batmobile. If we asked your friends what object they most immediately associate with you, what would they answer?

A pair of powerful spectacles has sometimes sufficed to cure a person in love.

My friends will definitely associate me with specs. No one has ever seen me without specs. Actually my eyesight is not that bad but I’m not at ease until I put them on my nose all the time. I can’t think without them. I’m not comfortable without them, I think they make me look intelligent( ha ha,joking). I may be wrong but now they have become my identity.
