Friday Flash 55......


.
Well Mr. Galen, you know the rules.
Every 55 years we play a single hand of five card draw.
I win.....Your soul is MINE!
You win....Life, Omniscience, A Full Head of Hair!
But I warn you, I've NEVER lost five straight hands.
(The cards are dealt)
"Mr. Lucifer , hehehehe......I'll play these"!!!
.

I told you I was old...
Sort of Charlie Danielesque n'est ce pas?
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment......Then BOOK!!!!
So from the most Devilish Host from coast to coast....
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Janna said...

Very Charlie Daniels-esque indeed!
I can almost hear the fiddle music in the background. :o

Thanks for another Friday 55!
Mine's here. :)

G-Man said...

Janna...
According to the Rules of Esquing, if the last name ends with an S, you may drop it.
For example....
Say you are like a nosy gossip columnist, you would be Louella Parsonesque!

I haven't done a 55 but I enjoyed yours G. Have a great weekend.

TALON said...

Sounds like you're a lucky devil, Galen!

I suddenly heard Flip Wilson trilling, "The Devil made me do it!" (yeah, I'm old, too!)

A Daft Scots Lass said...

Old, my arse!!!

Great 55 as always.

anthonynorth said...

You played with the right pact ;-)


You'll find mine here.

MorningAJ said...

That explains the hair then. I'd never take you on in a game of cards! Great tale this week G Man!

I'm up here

Akelamalu said...

Well obviously you've been winning with that great head of hair G! ;)

Mine's up.

Stranger said...

Ooh, that's a pretty devil but a lousy card player. Ha! You do rock the hair and soul but that ageless face mugging every Thursday does seem to have the trickster look of a man with the balls to face the devil and the brains to win.

I'm back again and mine's here..
Have a great weekend!

Belinda Munoz said...

Oh, so the devil plays by the rules, huh? ;)

Here's mine: http://thehalfwaypoint.net/2011/03/momentum/

Ami Mattison said...

Fun and funny 55! I'd say something else a bit more clever but it's way too early in the morning.

Here's my 55.

Thanks for the laugh! Wishing you a great weekend, G-Man!

Nimue said...

My post : Nature

the walking man said...

We came to a draw on the third hand and the bastard made my hair start to fall out.

5thsister said...

I knew it...The devil made you do it! Relieved to know you were dealt a winning hand!

Jerry said...

No folding is there? "These cards are marked. They're a mess! A chocolate mess!"

Happy 55th?

Peace.

Mine is up.

Austin said...

Nice write, do you play guitar as well?

My 55 - Check the Fan Pulls" - is here.

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Charlie Daniel's sang that the Devil doesn't deal in cards, but perhaps G-Man doesn't play the fiddle. (LOL!)

And of course, what's a good card game without something to munch on?

It's Snack Time!

5thsister said...

FINALLY got mine penned. It can be found HERE

Margaret said...

Hmm.... and you have quite a bit of hair, so I guess you won!

Here is mine, an over 10 year trip down memory lane...

Thanks for the fun!

They say you should never play cards with a man named Doc, or Satan, Beelzebub, etc. See what you have to stake to get not just hair but a whole new body, will ya?

Thanks for the encouragement in my blogs, G-Man!

I feel full of inspirations these two days, you are right, I am here and basically commented for all the birds (90% or above)....

I enjoyed reading those diverse, yet very smartly done 55 very much...

you rock, fellow poets/bloggers,

Keep it up!

See you next Friday.

I imagine a full head of hair would tip the scales for most! You have a subtle sense of humor.

Mine is up.
