Funny Story

"A funny story eh?" ehed Sid.
"What?" pretended to misunderstand I.
"You know what I said, you just can't do things like 'ehed Sid' to get a laugh you know."
"Why not?"
"People want word play, puns, parody, wit..."
"Tuh woo," tried I to sound like an owl.
"You're worse than Arthur sometimes."
"Oh really, when?"
"Now. and by the way, what's with all the questions?"
"I'm trying to get you to say something funny."
"What did the clown say to his wife to make her laugh?"
"I don't know."
"Something funny, there said it."
I groaned inwardly.

"Did you know that Alfred means elf read or evenly wise?" Sid the dwarf asked of Alf the elf.
"Yes I did," replied Alf.
"So you are the elvenly wise elf."
"Well not really, my name's Alf not Alfred."
"So you're the elf elf then?"
"In a minute I'll use my incredibly accurate bowman skills on you."
"You can't do that, it's not permissible."
"Elf and safety regulations!"

Boom, crash, shudder...

Boom, crash, shudder.
These three words denote some kind of accident or mishap. This could have happened to Sid or Arthur, or not.
It could just be the Author trying to come up with something for #FlashFriday and hoping that if he wrote, "Boom, crash, shudder," something would come to mind. 
"Hah," hahed Sid who was hanging around, "I've come to mind, something in your mind."
"What?" whatted I, "does that make sense?"
"It could mean that I am now minding something in your mind."
"I don't know, what are you thinking about?"
"I am supposed to be thinking about Kendra and the Wolf Master."
"Do you mind?"
"If I help you."
"It's not supposed to be a comedy you know Sid."
"Is anything you write really funny?"
"What!" exclaimed I, insulted by my own creation.
"Too many whats in this short story," and so he was off before I could make him suffer a boom, crash or shudder.

"Friday flash," grumped Arthur, "I thought the Flash was on a Tuesday?"
Sid, his little dwarven sidekick replied, "Not the CWTN super hero series, but that type of fiction where the main characters of a book or novel are employed as an advert for that said book or novel."
Arthur looked intently at Sid, "Are you feeling well old friend? It's just that you sound like a bowfin and not your usual surly/humorous self?"
"I assume you meant boffin there and it's been spell checked into bowfin. What is a bowfin by the way?"
"I feel a slight Google moment coming on, by the Author."

So Far

So far I have written about 7,000 words of Kendra and the Wolfmaster or nearly 3 chapters. I am planning to finish it in November.

Today's joke is:-

How many tickles does it take to make an octopus laugh?

Ten tickles!

New Post

"Has he given up?"
"I don't know."
"Why is this new post called 'New Post'? Is it about the stuff the postman puts through the door every day?"
"Is it?"
"I don't know."
"That makes two of us."
