Friday Flash 55...



Friday Morning Staff Meeting:

Sales Mgr: "Today it's important......

Me: (Thinking...But looks interested.)

'No Donuts? Grrrrrrr'

'Tony has worn those same pants for a week'

'Shit!! My shirt has a grease spot!'

'She still has a nice butt for being 58'

'My balls itch'...

'I gotta fart'...

Sales Mgr: "Galen...? What do YOU think?




Hehehehe...Ever had one of those meetings?
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 Vacationing Host from coast to coast.
Have a Kick Ass Week-End...!!!

Yes thats right folks, I'm 'Outta Town'!
So please help a Brotha out this week and visit as many 55 contributors as you can. I'll try to be around, but this week-ends weather forecast calls for Sunny and 72!!
After being cooped up in the Tundra all Winter, I'm ready to be outside in some fresh air!
Sorry for any inconvenience, and thank you for your cooperation...

Start with the last one. It'll take the edge off for when you get to the first one. :P And yes, I've had A LOT of those meetings. Some of them unannounced and lasting three hours. I feel better about being a stay at home mom now. LOL ;-)

Mine will be up at midnight pacific time. :)

KB said...

Janna said...

Right when he says "So, Galen, what do YOU think..." That's when you should have farted.

Sure, you'd get fired, but it's worth it. :)

Thanks for another Friday 55. :)
My own is posted right here.

We're expecting 6 to 10 inches of snow on Saturday!

Mr G-Man, you remind me: relatives are leaving after a three-week visit! "Steve, don't you have something to say to our company?"

"Uhhmmmmmmmm..."

I have a "55", first one in months. http://steveroni.blogspot.com/

anthonynorth said...

I can definitely remember meetings like that :-)
Nice one. You'll find mine here.

järnebrand said...

Funny! Yes, I have been to meetings like these. To come up with a clever answer when you are sitting there bored out of your mind, and with you thoughts flying off all over the place except where they ought to be flying... it's... well, it's difficult. :)
My 55 this week is called "Let's go" and is about love and the things you say and the things you really should be saying.

Thom said...

LOL...that's why I drive bus now. LOL Mine is up HERE. Have a great weekend :)

the walking man said...

If your balls itch in a sales meeting how do you scratch them?

Mona said...

Hehehehe :D That sounds so 'Realistic'

By the way, My 55ve is up!

Nessa said...

no wonder you got caught in the meeting. have a most excellent time.

jabblog said...

It's so difficult to concentrate on the agenda in these wretched meetings! There's quite an art to looking involved while thinking about something completely random ;-)
Mine is here: http://jabblog-jabblog.blogspot.com/2010/03/friday-55-flash-fiction-intimacy.html
I can't do the clever flashy linky thing *sobs*

evalinn said...

Yup, I know those! ;-) Great 55 as always. I´m up this week too. Have a great weekend! :-D

Jana said...

Yvonne said...

Right on. I wish I could get fired! Have a great weekend. And,yes, this is the way I now start my fridays.

Prayer Girl said...

This is so funny. Office politics and office culture can be so weird. I wouldn't watch "The Office", till daughter got me hooked. Too outlandish and funny for words.

My 55 will be up later today.

Enchanted Oak said...

Have a wonderful weekend in the spring weather, Galen. I'm just thrilled that thanks to Larry I can put a link to my 55
insert word Here

Enchanted Oak said...

Okay, so I forgot to hide part of Larry's instructions to me, and I look like a goofball. He really did teach me better than that. I swear.

hope said...

Wow...you're out in the fresh air and my 55 explains why I'm avoiding it. :)

Have a wonderful time playing outside. :)

Mine's up.

lime said...

hahaha, i've been at a few like that, and others where i h ad to grit my teeth so nothing that would get me fired came flying out of my mouth.

JStar said...

I feel like this at ALL meetings lol...Being at work was the best place to read this :) I HATE meetings...I dont care how alert and awake I am...As soon as the meeting starts I am struggling to keep my eyes open...

The Turning Point said...

I'm up and I don't miss any of "those" meetings.

Have a wonderful time outdoors this weekend Galen! Still cold enough here to curl up and play 55s all weekend (which is a good thing, when it takes that long to get through them all anymore LOL)

I'm late this week, but here's my 55.
