MLMM Friday Faithfuls — Space

For Friday Faithfuls this week, Jim Adams has challenged us to respond by writing anything about space, or to go with whatever else that we think fits. I think what Jim had in mind was space, where stars, planets, satellites, and asteroids reside. I’m going with a short story about “inner” space.

“I need more space,” Greg said.

“Are you serious?” Diana, the real estate agent asked. “This house has more than 5,000 square feet, it’s got five bedrooms, six and a half baths. And you still want more space? What am I missing?”

“Space, more space.”

“But you’re a bachelor, no wife, no kids,” Diana said, “what could you possibly need more space for?”

“My billiards room, my gym, my man-cave, my library, home theater, my….”

“Okay, you’re playing with me, aren’t you?” Diana asked.

Greg laughed. “Yeah, this place is way too big for me, with way too much space. But thanks for showing it to me. Now how about a nice three-bedroom, two bath bungalow with a fireplace and two cats in the yard….”

“Okay, stop,” Diana said, shaking her head.

    Very nice, Fandango. I’ll light the fire, while you put the flowers in a vase.

    You had me going for a minute there … I thought Greg was some rich, greedy corporate arsehole! Glad to see he isn’t. LOVE the song … have always loved it! You’ve given me an idea for a music post soon! Thanks!

    That is a lot of space. Of course if it’s a fully staffed dream house after winning the lottery it would be small still. Ha, ha, ha! Good job!
