#FridayFictioneers – Best Man’s Toast

Is this thing on?


Well, Omari and I go back to college. Feels like centuries ago, not just one. Omari inspired us all with his study of neurology and AI.  But he always had time for his friends. Even after he won the Nobel Prize he came to hang out with the gang at homecoming.

When I eulogized him, I said the one thing he never had time for was love.  Today, we see that he’s found a kindred soul in Felicity.

I’d ask everyone to raise a toast, but since we don’t have hands, just say “hurrah!”


When I saw this week’s prompt I thought I saw floating brains and a nervous system at a formal dinner and my mind (firmly encased in my living body) just ran with it from there.

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly photo prompt flash fiction challenge on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ Addicted to Purple blog.  See additional stories by other writers here!
