The Lost Wall of Mexico – Friday Fictioneers.

Nobody asked any questions at first. Although the unexplained structure was longer than the Great Wall of China, even the dog walkers ignored it. Newspapers speculated that his concrete monstrosity, was going to be a new mall. However, overnight, all became clear when the army moved in, and the border between Colorado and New Mexico closed.

At first, Trump said it was fake news. However, he finally had to admit there was a mistake. The map had been upside down. There was now a $US5.7 billion wall between Colorado and New Mexico. The new wall became known as “Mexico’s Revenge”.

This take was inspired by my own dreadful sense of direction and spatial awareness. You can’t be good at everything. Men can get quite self-righteous about their map-reading skills, knocking women who might happen to turn the map “upside down” to get where we’re wanting to go. So, this was a comic play on this.

Best wishes,

    Happy to be of service, Susan. If yu’d seen me on Tuesday night at my adult ballet class, you would’ve been in stitches. I wear pink satin ballet shoes and a black romantic style tutu I picked up at the op shop and a black tshirt. Completely inimitable. It’s all part of the fun and I like to encourage others to relax and not be too self-conscious.

    Thanks very much, Tannille. I have quite a lateral mind, which is quite in keeping with my poor sense of direction.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena
