Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Marie Gail Stratford.

My Friend Gerry
Gerry is my best friend.
Actually he’s pretty much my only friend.
Some folk think I’m a bit weird.
Actually most folk think I’m very weird.
But Gerry doesn’t mind.
I guess you could say we’re on the same wavelength.
We have long conversations about all sorts of stuff.
Rugby. Girls. Books. Girls. Music. Girls. Politics. Girls.
So, pretty much everything there is to talk about.
I say ‘we’, but Gerry rarely speaks.
When he does it’s probably deeply insightful.
Sadly it’s also totally unintelligible.
Did I mention that Gerry’s a Gerbil?
I did say some folk think I’m weird.
