A super short & silly piece I wrote for a French’s Mustard contest. I didn’t win the prize, think it needs a better ending, but had fun writing it.
French’s Mustard Love Story
French’s and Le Belle French Fry – a sorted tale with a tasty ending
Setting: Salon de Pommes Frites (A Hair Salon for French Fries) located on the French Riviera
Cast of Characters:
Le Belle French Fry (she’s French, long and lean, with a killer tan)
French’s Mustard (he’s strong and silent, a butter-scotch American stallion)
Le Ketchup Fou (Crazy Ketchup – Le Belle French Fry’s insanely jealous boyfriend)
Le Grand Aioli (the Big Mayonnaise – wants Belle for himself – reputed Mafia connections)
FiFi Frite – Belle’s hairdresser
“FiFi, my life is a mishmash”, says Belle.
“Cherie, whatever is wrong?” purrs FiFi, “your life seems perfect”.
Belle explodes, “Men, FiFi, Men! Le Ketchup fou is smothering me, I feel drenched all the time. Le Grand Aioli is pressuring me, what can I do?”
Just then, the door blows open, a shadow looms, and its owner strides in – he’s big, golden and American – French’s Mustard. “Ladies, I’m looking for Café Amour, do either of ya’ll know the way?”
Shoving Fifi aside, Belle leaps up, it’s love at first sight “Monsieur, you’re so big and golden, I’ll show you the way!”
“Much obliged ma’am”, says French’s with a grin. Off they go – happily ever after.
