Friday Flash 55.......



The psychiatrist closed the folder, smiled, and said to the patient...
"Mr. Haynes, I firmly believe that you are now one-hundred percent cured"!!
The patient immediately broke into uncontrollable sobbing...
"I don't understand, aren't you happy"?
'Why should I be'? He shot back...
'A year ago I was Alexander the Great...Today I'm Nobody'!!!


If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55...
Please come tell The G-Man.
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the most gracious host from coast to coast....
Have a Kick-Ass Week-End!!
Peace...!!!

Very cute and clever little parable. Shrinks have no doubt ruined many a rich fantasy life, my dear. Don't tell!;)

P.S. - We know it's the time of the Moon Madness, but it's all copacetic, you know what I mean?:-)

Loved your Flash 55. Why is it that delusional people think they are famous people? Why don't they think they are real estate agents, bankers, or teachers?

Susan at Stony River said...

That's a wonderful 55, maybe the best yet! I laughed out loud... and think it's perfectly true that perhaps 'cures' aren't what most of us want at all.

I was lazy about it this week (and late) but got going at last, right here.

Thanks again for hosting this fun thing!!

Those spambots are usually links that include malware of some sort - might want to delete it.

Never had a patient who was Alexander the Great - but some other interesting folks.
