FF – Mr Bond?

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by Shaktiki Sharma.

It took ages to get the photo uploaded this week – it was a little buggy! Ha ha ha. Ahem. 🙂

Note – those aren’t typos in the final sentence, I was trying to do his accent.

“Wow, this new tech is great!”

“Yeah, it’s bug… which is a bug!”

“Fly closer, we need to hear what they’re saying.”

“Okay… wait, it’s veering off course… heading towards that ultra-violet light… oh no…”


“A bit too bug-like, perhaps?”

“We’re going down, we’re going down! Okay, we still have video and audio.”

“Who’s this approaching with the sharp suit and Martini, shaken not stirred… oh my word, it’s HIM!”

A foot descends, crushing the bug. The last the operators hear is a strong Scottish accent.

“High-tech amateursh. Now, where wash I, my dear…? Ah yesh, sho I shaid to M…”

    Oh to be a fly on the wall…. but not a grasshopper on the ground.

    Ha, very good. Connery is a bit reclusive these days so maybe this would be a way to see what he’s up to! 🙂

      I’m sure with all his training he’d spot the intruder 🙂

    Dear Ali,

    I’m shaking my head. Perhaps they should have kept to good old wire-tapping. Funny stuff.

    This grasshopper does look very high tech 😉 Love the story 🙂

    When facing the best of the best–even if they’ve been out of the public eye for a bit–perhaps, known and reliable would be best. So much money squashed.


    • March 9, 2017 at 8:26 am

      Indeed, this was no time to be playing about with new and untested technology.
      Ha, funny – “so much money squashed” 🙂

    Ah, but to die under even the foot of the great Bond is an honour … Well, almost an honour.

      If I have to go, there’s no shame in it being by Bond’s hand (or foot) 🙂


  10. March 8, 2017 at 11:41 pm

    This is delightful in so many ways. “Which is a bug” segueing into “fly closer” was brilliant.

    Loved teh Bond movies as a kid. Well done!

    Funny Ali is back! 😁
    I cringe at the thought of the loud crunching sound of the huge bug being squashed…


    • March 9, 2017 at 4:54 pm

      Fortunately it would just have been the crunching of springs and internal workings 🙂 Unless they taped a camera and control circuit to a real bug of course… cyber bug!

    Hiding the “bug” in plain sight… kinda backfired, didn’t it?
    You are nuts, Ali… keep ’em coming!


    • March 10, 2017 at 8:06 am

      It did. Maybe a less colourful one next time.
      Nuts is what I do 🙂

    I would love to wander around in your brain. Your imagination is out of this world. LOL!!!!


  22. March 10, 2017 at 2:32 am

    That does sound very much like one of those old Bond tricks. And it worked about as well against him as they normally do, too! Clever idea, Ali!


  23. March 10, 2017 at 6:36 am

    Oh, no! Another one of M’s inventions down the drain or should I say squashed. Very funny, Ali! The accent totally works at the end.


    • March 10, 2017 at 8:09 am

      Easy come, easy go. It probably only cost half a mil to develop 🙂
      I’m glad you liked my attempt at Mr Connery’s accent!

    i guess the bug isn’t ready for prime time. the bug has a bug in its code. 🙂


  25. March 10, 2017 at 9:54 am

    Absolutely brilliant. And as for your Bond impersonation…perfect!

    My story is called ‘THE DETECTIVE’


    • March 10, 2017 at 9:40 pm

      Thanks! I’m glad the accent came across – he has quite a distinctive way of speaking 🙂


  26. March 10, 2017 at 1:28 pm

    Yeah, and you know it was probably that scoundrel Barack Obama who was doing the bugging. Jeesh, you’d think he had better things to do with his retirement! [j/k for those who don’t know me].
    I love how you’ve imagined this, Ali. Funny and quirky as always. As to one’s favourite Bond age (ha!), I’ve always thought it depended on the Bond that was more contemporary to your time. In my case, Roger Moore. (Poor Timothy Dalton gets little credit, though I think he did a decent job. I’m not super-fond of Mr. Craig, though.) Anyyyyway, happy Friday. 🙂


    • March 10, 2017 at 9:44 pm

      I’m not overly fond of Daniel Craig either, he’s maybe a bit too serious for my taste. I loved Sean Connery and I also quite liked Pierce Brosnan, though in that case it may have been the story lines – quite tech and modern.
      I’m glad you enjoyed my story and happy Friday to you too 🙂

    What a clever “bug”. it looks just like one. I love your Scottish accent, Ali. Good writing. 😀 — Suzanne


    • March 11, 2017 at 5:55 pm

      I’m glad you liked my story! Fortunately Sean Connery’s quite an easy accent to “write”.

    The accent is such a hoot, I also recognized him immediately. Such a fun and clever story.

    Very funny, again! I particularly liked the idea of the bug being attracted to the violet light of the bug electrocutor. (Don’t know the technical name for it)


    • March 12, 2017 at 6:14 pm

      I don’t know what they’re called either. I’m glad you enjoyed the story!


  32. March 12, 2017 at 12:20 pm

    Loved the accent!


  33. March 12, 2017 at 5:25 pm

    Yes non better than Mr Connery to find the bug… 🙂


    • March 12, 2017 at 6:15 pm

      They were never going to get that past him 🙂


  34. March 13, 2017 at 4:32 am

    Wonderfully imaginative!


  35. March 13, 2017 at 11:56 am

    To spy on Mr Bond, I think they probably need a bug that’s a bit better at hiding! Love Connery’s accent. 🙂 A fun story, Ali.


    • March 13, 2017 at 4:27 pm

      Yes, that one is a bit colourful and standy-outy 🙂
