Friday Fictioneers - The Future Historical Society

I was feeling a bit off, last Friday, so I figured I'd squeeze my Friday Fictioneers submission in today, before the linkup closes! I had fun with this one. Maybe I should try my hand at writing some longer pieces of quirky science fiction.

As always, thanks go out to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting!

The Future Historical Society

“And this is a collection of instruments used in the twentieth century,” the guide droned as the group paused in front of a small enclave.
A purple being from the Alpha Centauri system raised a claw-like appendage, and warbled through its breathing device, “What were they for?”
The woman, sporting a set of bright yellow lips, the latest in Earth fashion, replied, “We believe they were used to arrange primitive music. Next, we have something called a ‘bathroom’.”
The small extraterrestrial lingered behind the group as it moved on, wondering just what sounds the board with dials on it made.


  1. Excellent! Love the tour!. You are so clever, Nan :)

    1. Aw, thank you, Nan! I had fun with it. :)

  2. Dear Emilie,

    Fun. Reminds me of scenes from Babylon 5.



    1. Hi Rochelle,

      Thank you! THERE'S a show I haven't seen in ages. Hubby and I started a Farscape marathon a few months back, but we got sidetracked.

      Take care,
