Friday Flash 55.....




Dark.....Pensive.
She sat all alone, swilling down the
wine like Perrier....With Little Effect!!
Carlos thought...Yeah, this'll be easy.
Smoothly sliding onto the adjoining barstool,
Carlos asked..."Hi, can I buy you a drink?"
Lyssa's eyes stopped gazing at her glass to meet his.
'Sure......Bartender?
Chateau Margaux...82'!
(THUD...)
'Mister...You OK?'


Maybe Carlos should hit on chicks that drink Gallo Tawny Port?
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 gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

(FYI...An 82 Margaux's estimated value is $8000. to $11,ooo.)

And here I'd be happy with a few deep-fried things and a diet coke.

Irony is everything.

Thanks for another Friday 55!

Ha--poor carlos. He needs to think before he speaks, and look before he leaps-those dark smoky bars have led many astray..
