Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.

I am in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State, visiting a beloved friend.
I decide to go to Vancouver BC.
She offers me her car.
I shake my head.

I look at her, spread my arms wide.
She starts to laugh.
I join in.
We speak at the same time.
Every day is an adventure.
