Weekend Writing Prompt#91 – Curtis and the Beatles #sammiscribbles, #themagicshop


My buddy, Curtis was quite the storyteller. Every morning at the diner, he would share with us all a tall of some sort. They usually involved celebrities. I honestly don’t know if Curtis believed his stories, but we still were entertained. This morning’s yarn was a “Curtisdoozie”. He proclaimed he knew a guy who was related to someone who knew “The Beatles”. Curtis claimed,

“Most of them Beatles songs had different titles”.

Me and the boys smirked.

Helter-Skelter’s original name was Heebie-Jeebies”.

I started to laugh thinking about poor John Lennon screaming “HEEBIE-JEEBIES!”

Curtis grinned at me, knowing full well that this was just “Beatles-bologna”.
