Friday Flash 55....





Holmes....?

"I'm smelling your moustache Watson".

And...?

"You've been with a woman. A French woman that
you met at a dockside pub. I detect the faint aroma
of Lobster, Garlic, and Saffron.....BOUILLABAISSE!!!
The same proportion used at The Smirking EEL!!!"

And the woman...?

"French women rarely bathe...
(Sniff)
Champagne Vinegar...From the Ay Provence"!!!


Who knew Ole Watson gave an occassional Moustache Ride?
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 investigative host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!!

Katherine Krige said...

Damn, missed it by a minute. So where does this Homes guy hang out anyway?

hedgewitch said...

That Brian, always the over-achiever.

You've considerably expanded my 'feel' for the Conan Doyle canon with this insight into Watson's secret life, G.

I have a nice morbid little offering tonight, from one of my dreams,naturally-- so expect the worst:

Rats

Christine said...

Here's mine, hope I don't get myself in trouble with this one, I scrambled the name up, maybe they won't notice.

Enchanted Oak said...

Elementary, my dear. Keen olfactory observation.

Is that your supper we're seeing, G? Enjoy! Think I'll go heat up my leftover spaghetti soup...

Fickle Love

Tifiny said...

Hello,

I believe that my current post has exactly 55 words,

will go back to double count after this comment.

Thanks for the inspirations.

your 55 is quite amusing and interesting.

yes, i have a 55 up.

Margaret said...

I wouldn't mind getting close if Holmes looks anything like Robert Downey, Jr.! My FF55 for this week is once again more non-fiction. Sorry.

I Want it All

It IS funny, though, my "Magpie Tales" post Shades of Grey just happened to be 55 WORDS! I didn't plan it. Just goes to show you this FF55 seeps into one's brain!

Me said...

Never bothered with reading Sherlock Holmes, it just didn't appeal. Until now. Hahaha!

And guess what? I managed to find 55 words this week too. :)

Mine is HERE.

Yvonne Osborne said...

Making BOUILLABAISS is not elementary!! And neither is writing flash 55.

Mine is up.

Brian Miller said...

did hedge say feel conan doyle's canon...

terrible pun...smiles.

G-Man said...

Why Brian...?
I believe she DID!

Teresa said...

Totally changes my view of Victorian England. Mine is up. http://razzamadazzle.wordpress.com/2012/01/05/the-fool/

JANU said...

LOL and yuk....very imaginative though.

TALON said...

lol! I always suspected those two were more than "friends". Holmes is a truly dedicated detective, isn't he? ;)

My 55: The Opening

izzy said...

You really have gone all steamy.
I turn to the Bouillabaisse- which I do not use tomato in; I stay with fish stock.
My 55 is straight out of this afternoon.

Caty said...

I just saw the second Sherlock movie...and i could almost see that happening ;) I am gonna try my best to put up a 55 tomorrow, but it will be on the later side of tomorrow :)

Alice Audrey said...

LOL! Oh dear. I did NOT just laugh. Really. I totally deny it.

Mine is up

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

Words fail me. Way to link a lot of interesting images, though - photographic, illustrative, and mental!

Here's mine: Holiday

Margaret said...

Oh good grief. I just read this twice and I realize what a mustache ride is now! Ha ha. Well, I couldn't get that close even if Sherlock looks like Robert Downey Jr. As I am happily married. I should have known to give that phrase a longer pondering!

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah, I bugged out over Christmas. Sorry about that. I'm glad to be back.

myheartslovesongs said...

sooooo close to going over the line, G!

several lines, actually. {smile}

i'm trying for a 55 but it won't go up till Friday. i'll be back.

yellowhousecafe said...

Dang, G, don't know what is more fun...your 55, or the sidebar commentary it instigates! Gotta warn ya, no music today. I thought I needed to support my now, very over exposed state, and show that we are "Nice".

MorningAJ said...

I've always thought Watson had a secret side!

I'm in the garden this week.

mylittlewordz said...

Nice picture and wry tale to go with it. I always had my suspicions about those two...

Here's mine: Final Moment

anthonynorth said...

About time for his secret diary to published, perhaps?
You'll find mine here.

Evalinn said...

You dirty old blogger! ;-)

Anyway, just wanted to tell you, I´m up over here: King Bore Flash Fiction

Have a great weekend!

Lydia said...

Oh. So they were private detectives? Who knew!

Mine is: Parker.



the walking man said...

For a well made Bouillabaisse any man might move off his mar...errr his own way for a bowl full.

the walking man said...

PS...I got a deal for you G-man you ride 'em on your Harley and I'll ride 'em on my mustache.

No one can ever say we Michigan boys don't have each others back!

Akelamalu said...

That is so wrong on so many levels! LOL

I'm going to add to the distaste by passing on a saying I heard

"Only two things smell like fish and one of them is fish!"

Mine 55 is up.

Daydreamertoo said...

LOL U R soooo badddd!

Mine is up. Somehow you always make me take a walk down memory lane. LOL

Queens Park No pun intended with your pic....haha

Mama Zen said...

Mine's up!

Mijayami said...

Maybe I should put Sherlock Holmes on my reading list...

I wrote a little story this week, but not nearly as creative as yours. It's here.

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

What's up, Doc?
(That's what SHE said!)

My 55 was inspired by my recent visit to the gym: Exercise

Hillbilly Duhn said...

New to your blog.... I laughed and ewwwed.

I like the idea of a 55 word story. I might have to go and do that now.

hope said...

O...kay.

Mine's up. Have a great weekend!

Other Mary said...

Hahaha??? Where did that come from?

Brian Miller said...

hedgewitch said...

My apologies to all this week-I have contracted some sort of nasty crud that does bad things to my stomach and makes my head start to fall off whenever I get on the computer--thanks to all who came by to read, and I will do better at returning visits next time.

Oh, and bri--G--I heard that! If I weren't feeling puny you'd be in bigger trouble even than usual.

Isabel said...

happy new year everyone! here's mine.. http://thesilenceoftheday.blogspot.com/2012/01/sea-shell.html

Evalinn said...

G-man, I´ve been a little bit bad. But only because I really don´t think you will mind. I hope you won´t.

I know stealing is bad, even pics on the internet, but I just needed to borrow your blog header for a post...if you DO mind just let me know and I´ll take it away right away, ok?

You see you´re my favorite this week, so I needed that pic, ok?
