Friday Fictiolneers – Wild Mushrooms


Boe was a good ole country boy; rich and handsome too. 

After daddy died, he’d had to run the farm. But, he was tired of milking cows and feeding hogs.

Boe took off for college in the big city. 

At a party, he met Victoria. Her sapphire eyes captivated him.

Eventually, Boe took her to the farm to meet Mama. 

He showed her around the farm. Pointing, she asked, “What’s that?”

“Wild mushrooms in dung. We feed ‘em to the hogs.”

She wrinkled her nose.

At dinner Mama announced, “Roasted hog and wild mushrooms tonight.”

Victoria wrinkled her nose again.

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of who I am no matter what venue I choose to express it in.

  1. That got me chuckling! I could just picture the whole thing. I was probably relating a bit too much with Victoria since I’ve not been on a farm either! 😆🙀💕

    • Gosh … I’m happy you had a good laugh. This challenge has had everyone writing funny stories so your reaction is perfect.
      I went to a farm once. I saw the chicken being killed for dinner. I couldn’t bring myself to eat it nor do I like chicken to this day. Traumatic for me … : (
      I guess you could say there’s a bit of Victoria in me. LOLOL 😂😂😂

  2. Wait. If the wild mushrooms are fed to hogs, does that mean the people are pigs?

  5. Roasted hog and wild mushrooms sounds delicious. I’ll be back for second helpings! Is it served with crab apple jelly? Please?

  6. Hehe! I guess mama does not like Victoria much. City girl stealing his simple minded Boe. I found the story really cute.

    • Or, maybe, Boe asked Mama to make his favorite foods for Victoria.
      Sometimes, you walk right into a culture you didn’t realize was very different
      from yours. Victoria must have had something like these foods in city restaurants.
      But … seeing the process was a bit much for her. Glad you enjoyed my story.
      Thanks for stopping by …

  8. Well done and interesting take on the prompt. Reminds me of some if the stories English war brides told. Some London girl lands on a farm in a remote part of the prairie. 😊
    Life is full of challenges and new experiences and the g.f. will adjust depending on how much she wants Boe. My mom-in-law taught me a LOT. 😄

    • I agree, Christine. I had a mother-in-law who was kind and loving towards me. Not all mother-in-laws are bad some can be quite caring.
      It’s tough to be city gal on a farm. I wonder if she could adjust for love. Mmmm ….
      Thanks for popping by and commenintg.

  9. Hahahaha! That city girl belongs in the city. LOL! Cute story, Issy!

  10. Mmmm..Roasted hog and wild mushrooms …. I wonder if that is the way to Boe’s heart? Victoria probably needs to show some appreciation for such fine dining 😉


  11. Hmm, sounds like Victoria isn’t suited to country living. Fun story!

  14. It goes with the territory. It’s very seldom that a mother will like a prospective daughter-in-law.

  18. Querida Isadora,

    Pork sounds even less appetizing than ever. 😉 No quiero comer puerco o hongos tampóco. Otra vez, como Na’ama, digo ‘cute story.’ ❤

    Shalom y abrazos,
