Radio Babble – May 1, 2021

First, a word from our sponsor

[Bright organ music…]


[End organ, cue soft whirring sounds…]

Now back to regular programming

[Cue ominous organ, stalling on final chord…]


When we last left Chaz and Larry…

“So, I said to him, Sid, I said, you can’t do that.”

“What’d he say?”

“Larry, he says to me, he says, why not, and I told him accounta she’ll slap you stupid, man!”

“What’d he do then?”

“Durned fool went and done it!”


“Did. Walked right up to her and says it all cool-like.”

“Get out!  What’d she do?”

“Why, she slapped him stupid.”

[Surprised organ chords… and fade…]

Same time, next week, listeners.  Meanwhile, stop into Merv’s Real Estate and Bait and Tackle to pick up a bottle of ZipFast.

And if your ride is a mite cranky, pull into Leonetti’s Autoworks Quik-Serve Lane on Division Street.   Let Leonetti’s master mechanics do your worrying. They’re open Monday through Friday eight AM to six PM and Saturdays eight AM until the first pitch of the Sewakee Sonics ballgame. Remember, “Leonetti won’t steer you wrong!”

[Cue auto engine revving and speeding away.  Fade to audio of bat sharply striking a baseball and a crowd roar…]

Retired career IT software engineer, or as we were called in the old days, programmer, it's time to empty my file cabinet of all the "creative" writing accumulated over the years - toss most of it, salvage and publish what is worthwhile.

    1. That’s the beauty of flash, so much is (meant to be) left to the reader. What’s your favorite “what I said was but what I should have said was” line? What in your youth you thought was a pretty cool pick-up line that now embarrasses you just thinking of it? Hope your Weekend was superb. Mine? Got almost all of my “list” done, dodging rain, taking time to chit chat with neighbors, domestics, and even a tour of duty on the grill and making Nashville Fungus for a lovely side to accompany an almost-Porterhouse T-bone. Boss opted for beef ribs, tells me I did a bang-up job. Lady can flat destroy some beef ribs. Lookit! We got us a new week coming at us. Do good, sir!
