Morning Coffee


My latest submission to the Friday Fictioneers, as per the below photo prompt. Thought I would experiment with the first person perspective. Hope you enjoy.

I think to myself, ‘What is home?’

The reply comes suddenly. ‘Home is a cottage in the valleys, a roof over your head and a roaring fire.’

‘Sounds lovely’, I reply. ‘Anything else?’

‘A friendly smile and good companionship!’

I shake my head. ‘Too clichéd.’

My statement is met with a small pause. ‘Wherever I lay my hat?’

‘Very musical’, I say out loud.

My last words are met with confused stares from my fellow passengers. As the train pulls into the station, I wonder again if I should consider laying off the coffee. If only it was that simple.

  1. Good story – Thanks! Nan

  2. Dear Weltchy,

    Myself and I really enjoyed your take on the prompt in which you took talking to oneself to a new level. Good one.

    As for copying the photo prompt to your blog page, perhaps I can help. If you right-click on the photo it should give you the option to save it to your computer. Then, on your edit page for your blog there should be a tab at the top left that says “Add Media”. Click that and it will take you to the library. Click “upload” then find the prompt in your pictures and add it to your library. To the right it will give you size options. Click “Insert into Post.” Hope this helps.



    • Thanks Rochelle. Glad you enjoyed my take on your average train commuter and his or her dilemma of coffee versus the voices in their head.

      Regarding the image, I didn’t want to clog up my blog’s storage, but I found the option to specify the URL for the image directly and have used that. Was just a case of spending the time

  3. Talking aloud to yourself is seen with less suspicion nowadays.. You might have been talking on the cell-phone using a handsfree… I recall when this was new, I thought people were becoming crazy talking to themselves.
