Friday Fictioneers: The Architects

kent-bonham‘Whats the best material for building a house, monsieur?’ Asked Lewis, the architecture student.

‘Brick, of course. Stone,’ said Patrice, the elder architect.

‘Pah!’ cried Anton, the new architect. ‘The only material strong enough to build a home with is bones. ‘

‘Bones? Lunacy!’ Declared Patrice.

‘Where would you find such big bones, sir?’ Asked Lewis.

‘I would go beyond the West River, where the giant’s live, and kill a giant and use his bones,’  said Anton, pointing out of the window towards the mountians in the distance.

‘Don’t be ridiculous!’ Said Patrice. ‘The giants live by the East River.’

  1. Fun dialogue here. And what a creative material for buildings! Reminds me of that song… hip bone’s connected to the leg bone, and so on. With their building, I suppose hip bones would be connected to windows and doors.


  2. Now I’m trying to imagine the best bones to use. The ribs might work, but if they were big enough, I’d just save the work and live in the skull. That’d scare the neighborhood kids.
