I’ll be there for you – Friday Fictioneers


‘Dude, tell me about this girl you like.’

Pete sighed, ‘Man! Her name is Rachel.’

‘Sigh, egh? Pretty?’

‘So gorgeous, that I wanna cry.’

‘Intense bro. What does this Rachel do?’

‘She works in a big-ass store, man. Dunno which.’

‘She interested in you?’

‘Dunno, man! There’s this other guy in the scene.’

‘They serious?’

‘Nah, bro! It’s just on and off, bloody infuriating.’

‘What does this dude do?’

‘Not sure! Some Doctor. Name’s Ross.’

Bud stopped and pointed at a building. ‘This Rachel, she work there?’

‘Yeah, bro. How’d you know?’

‘Man, I told you not to binge watch FRIENDS while smoking pot.’

The 4th edition of #MicroMondays closes tonight. Could you come up with a 42 word microfiction by then? 😉


  1. Lol I saw the mentions of Rachel and Ross and wondered if you were going to sneak in a FRIENDS pun and you did not disappoint, it was great, amusing little piece 🙂


  2. Well that brought an outright guffaw from me! Thankfully, I did NOT have a mouthful of something to spew on my screen and keyboard!

    Liked by 1 person

  3. Ha! Brilliantly fun story. It made me laugh out loud. I also thought of Rachel from Friends when I saw the photo this week, maybe that was what led to my own story.


  4. Ha!Ha! This one is howlarious!! I’m almost rolling over the floor laughing.
    Nicely done, Joey, err Varad! Like Keith just said. ;-)))
    Too good. Hope to read more such kick ass humor from you.


  5. You have created very authentic voices for your characters, terse and streetwise. An excellent choice for disguising the twist of your story!


  6. I used to binge watch F.R.I.E.N.D.S and I feel it is perfectly normal to have a crush on Rachel. I don’t blame the pot..even without a pot it would have been the same.. Great post..enjoyed a lot.


  7. Ha, as someone in the UK Rachel and FRIENDS was where my Bloomingdales reference point was at too!
