Friday Flash 55.....




The red glow of her cigarette pierced the darkness.
As he lay snoring on the bed, she finally decided to end the frustration.
She gathered up her belongings and left a note...

Clark,
You are handsome, strong, and mild-mannered.
But being faster than a speeding bullet, JUST DOESN'T CUT IT IN THE SACK!!!
Lois.


If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55...
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!!

Little Lois knew that Superman has a short refractory time but he didn't want to wear her out.

Batman may be the better choice for her...he never sleeps.

MIke Kilgore said...

Ok, G-Thats freakin' hilarious! Just for that I'll go write one, it may suck compared to this, but I shall endeavor...

By the way, why do women complain so much-if its a problem for you then....KEEP UP!

Doctor FTSE said...

Hello people! I have posted a 55 word story hereabouts.
It is not an original story, but rather a competition. Can you identify the full length novel of which the 55 words constitute a precis?

schererart said...

I'm speechless. Well, no I'm not. This one is full of new beginnings for the woman. Self-absorbed that she is, and heartless, she will later find she made a mistake. Yikes!! It will be too late. He will have moved on! Hurray for him!! Cleverly-written.

Lou said...
