It’s been a busy week at the Musical Fiction Factory, or at least in the office…so here’s this week’s Fictioneers story. I have some time off next week, so there’s a good likelihood that a few stories will be in the offing on my vacation days.

Message In A Bottle
We sat at the table of the faux Chinese restaurant, like we do every Sunday. I picked up the bottle of hot sauce to douse my fried rice, when I saw it.
“Marie, there’s a note in this hot sauce.”
“What? Well, open it up and get it out!”
Sighing heavily, I did what she told me. I pulled out the long note, and read it out loud.
“My name is Stewart Copeland. This is my SOS. I’m stuck in the Sriracha factory. I hope that someone gets my message in a bottle.”
I only wonder how long that message has been in that bottle…
