Wednesday Words: The Foursome

1091818.  The legs of a man wearing golf shoes making ready to hit a golf ball.

When Evan dropped dead in front of his golfing foursome, Frank responded quickly.

With his brand new golf shoes, he nudged Evan, and turned him over.  “Damn!” Frank cursed, “Now I have grass stains.  Damn.”

Clem interrupted. “Well, you did insist on a morning tee-off time.”

All looked down at Evan’s still body.

Jack spoke up. “Who will be our fourth?!  It isn’t likely Evan will be regenerated anytime soon.”

Frank shook his head.  “No help for it.  Let’s head back to the clubhouse.  We’ll tell the Front Desk about Evan.” He nudged Evan once more with a heavy sigh.

This was a Wednesday Words Post, and I truly enjoyed writing it.

    1. Yes, that would have made a difference, and if any money was riding.

  3. Watching golfers is fascinating. I can imagine this scenario. I pass one and sometimes two courses in a day. Yesterday while it was raining, we watched the carts closest to the club house making a mad scramble back. The fellows a couple miles out just kept playing. At the second course, the parking lot was full up, but no one was out on the curse.

    1. I believe there is an obsessive factor there.

  5. Some people are soooo inconsiderate. A real friend wouldn't have dropped dead and left people in the lurch like that.

    1. This does speak to the lack of friendship when it comes to golf.

  6. Why did he have to be difficult and drop dead then? Couldn't he have waited ;)

    1. He was wearing a woolen vest, so he felt no dampness there. Glad you liked this playing with words.
