Friday Flash 55.....

.

So, he says to me......
"Margaret, my employer is sending me out of
the country for a year, I hope you understand".
He hands me a strand of pearls, gives me a kiss
on the cheek, and he's GONE!
Uh Huh.....
I've got news for you big boy.
I'm NOT so easily discarded....You'll find out!

.

.
Ooooh, she does have THAT look doesn't she?
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 nervous host from coast to coast....
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

And I believe a YAHTZEE may be in order??

Me said...

I know you were writing from *her* perspective, but I couldn't help picturing *you* saying the words. You were, of course, wearing the pearls. ;)

Mine is up HERE.

Monkey Man said...

That is a kind of 'don't mess with me or I'll put your eye out with cigarette' look isn't it?

My 55 is HERE .

Fireblossom said...

Oh please. Those aren't even real. His sports memorabilia and golf clubs will be on craig's list before he's even on the plane. ;-)

snowelf said...

dustus said...

Think she definitely means business. Hope he has good credit.

Just Like Them

Serena said...

Margaret probably likes knots in her pearls but not in her stomach. Hmmmm, what will she do?

g-man said...

You'll see...hehehehehe

Serena said...

Why, does she have a Plan B?:-)

g-man said...

And C....and D....And E!

5thsister said...

Margaret sounds well prepared. She must have been a Girl Scout.:-)

One Stop - The Place For Poets, Writers and Artists said...

hedgewitch said...

I don't know, I think she's weighing options. Perhaps absence will get the old boy out of her hair while she chats up the pool guy.

I am a totally unserious girl today, so this is a completely silly 55
Grandma's Attitude Problem

TALON said...

She's got that look...the one that says, "I'll have a blast while the blighter is gone, but when he gets back! Oh yeah...then he's gonna pay..."

Loved your 55, Galen.

Mine is:

Great 55 G-Man!

Steve E said...

Ahhh! "String of Pearls" can have so many meanings. But DISCARDED has only ONE!

Yipeee! I wrote one HERE

the walking man said...

I guess that's one way to split without saying take it all. Hope he stopped his direct deposit before he left.

Katherine said...

Hmm..she does have a look in her eye doesn't she!! Great 55 G-man, as usual!

Eaton Bennett said...

Do I feel a serial 55 coming on? Or at least a few episodes? aaaaand she could be real trouble with that cool look in her eyes.

I'm playing this week G-daddy...

Eaton

Monkey Man said...

I know I have strayed from the "fiction" aspect of Friday's 55's but I will reform....promise!

moondustwriter said...

Here's one from a guy (H Picasso0that left his URL at One Stop

its good

Donnetta Lee said...

Galen: I didn't get a 55er written this week. My Mama passed away, and it has been pretty stressful. I did manage to write a small tribute to her that I would love for you to read. So I put that up on my blog today. Please keep my little Mama in your thoughts. Best, Donnetta

Kavita said...

xoxoxo

drybottomgirl said...

Love those old gorgeous girl days! She may want to use those pearls as a weapon.....:) My 55 is up, and have a great weekend!

gab said...

Well, I guess I was thinking along different lines. Like maybe he was in the army and was leaving the states for a year.
But her look does look murderous

Susan at Stony River said...

Man, my grandma used to give me the ol' stinkeye like that. Yikes!

Personally, I think his giving her the pearls AND leaving is just a win-win.

Anyhoo, I didn't forget you. I'm just late. BUT mine's rather terrible today (sick kids, yeah, blame it on the sick kids...)

Have a good weekend Galen!

kkrige said...

Hey G
Just wanted to let you know when I typed Flash 55 into google, you were at the top of the list! Woohoo, exciting! I am playing along this week here

moondustwriter said...

Want to thank G-Man again for letting One Stop Poetry feature the 55

We really are making history folks - our grandkids will be talking about Shay and MM.... and marveling

thanks to each of you and your fine writing

secret agent woman said...

I suspect she'll manage to find someone to keep her company.

Jingle said...

YEAH!, you win The Celebrate Poet of 2010 Award

Happy Sunday!
