Friday Flash 55


I recently discovered Friday Flash 55, hosted by G-Man.  The idea is to write any story you like in 55 words (no more, no fewer) then tell G-Man with a comment on his Flash 55 post.
Always looking for inspiration, I’ve decided to give it a try.  This is my first time, so please be gentle!

Bee-witched
 
 
Henry was one of those men that women describe as “interesting.”  Oh, sure, she’d aspired to finding a pretty boy like Matthew McConaughy, but Henry had won her over the day when he’d walked into her florist shop wearing a bumble bee costume, and not said a word to explain it.  And lo!  She blossomed.

  3. Hi Patti!!

    That was great1 Really??--Your first?? Wouldn't have guessed.

    Is that a little cockatiel on your shoulder? I have a boy named cheeky (Chico) ...among my menagerie...he calls the dogs in every night, lol.



    Glad I found you....

  4. WOW!!
    That was strange!
    hahahahahaha
    BTW...Susie Que turned the Friday Flash 55 over to me about 2 years ago. She is a small business owner and has NO time at all. She is my friend and torMENTOR. And she is very cool!
    You have a wonderful sense of whimsy. Thanks for visiting, thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  5. Thank you all for the positive comments.

    Akannie: Yes, I think he is a cockatiel, but he's not mine. He lives in an aviary at the Seattle zoo. For some reason, he took a liking to me. Perhaps it was the peanut butter on a stick I was carrying...

    G-Man: Thanks for the info about Friday Flash 55's history. I corrected my post. From what I have seen, Susie left the concept in good hands.

  6. That's hilarious! Not just the costume, but resisting the urgent to self-justify? Love it.

    Great 55.

  11. You did great for your first (well, if it weren't your first.) I've always preferred interesting men to pretty men.
