100 Word Challenge - Luck

100 Word Challenge

What follows is given in response to the 100 Word Challenge, reborn now under the gentle auspices of my friend, Tara Roberts, of Thin Spiral Notebook . This week's conversation, between Mae West and W.C.Fields, is given in response to this week's prompt - "Luck".

Well, say there, Stranger.  You gonna buy a lady a drink or what?

Stranger???  Jay Derringer Bumbleshoot, at your service, madam.  What'll ya have?

Bumbleshoot??  What kind of handle is that?  Champagne.

I'll have you know, I come from a long line of Bumbleshoots.  Bartender!! Yer best for the lady.

Yeah.  I'll bet you do.  Is that a roll of quarters in your pocket or are ya just happy to see me?  Cheers.

A visitation by a pulchritudinous lady of fashion, such as yourself, is a truly fortuitous circumstance. Bumps.

Say, buster!! Call it what it is.  Pure, dumb, Luck.

Ndinombethe.  Ubuntu.

With apologies to the memories of Mae West and W.C. Fields.
