Friday Flash 55.....



.

.

As he climbs off his indifferent wife

And races toward Dreamland. The frustrated spouse asks him..

'Honey...Have you ever wanted Passion'?

"Yeah...About 30 seconds ago".

'No.....REAL Passion'!!

"You mean like kissing on the lips,

and remembering the Anniversary Passion?"

With a sigh, she rolls over and decides to meet

theromanceking69@aol.com for lunch tomorrow....

.

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 Passionate Host from Coast to Coast...

Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

I'm going "awww" in one breath and then I can't help it, but the kissing on the lips (never mind the 30 seconds ago) totally cracked me up! Awesome 55, G-Man!

A Daft Scots Lass said...

So many ppl can relate to this...

joanny said...

A "provocative 55er of an economy of words, has a sophoclean irony that we all know what can happen --- when passion dies, it is the 'dull' days that make me weep.

Mine will be up tomorrow,

nice write, Galen wishing you a passionate month.

Belinda Munoz said...

Ahh, what every married couple fears...and all too often, we never think it's happening to us until it's too late. Great 55!

drybottomgirl said...

Dangerous but true G-man! It's important to listen to what someone is "really" saying.....mine is up and have a great weekend!

Titanium said...

Slipped a cog and missed a week... but couldn't pass up reading yours.

G-Man, there's about 85 layers in these 55 words of yours. Hot damn. There's not much fun in their dys-fun-ction; but then, that's the story of a large part of the population.

But romanceking? Accckkkk. Hubbie better check her for roaches and crabs upon her return.

kkrige said...

G-Man, I bring you a tale of woe today. Happy Friday!

kkrige said...

P.S. your 55 is a sad state of affairs that is all too common I am afraid.

Lulda Casadaga said...

AH the "P" word...and I don't mean piss off...It is like the quest for the Holy Grail to some. Loved this 55. OK, now I have to put on my "P" cap and get busy...don't worry I'll make the deadline G!

MorningAJ said...

She'll probably turn up and find out it's her husband!

Mine's up.

Connie T. said...

I can tell you that if any man, knowing I wasn't happy, "climbed off" and fell asleep, that would be the last time he was in bed with me.

Fay's Too said...

You hit it, Buddy! Good one.

the walking man said...

That where shit happens we change or never have the same definition of passion.
