Friday Flash 55.....






************* THE ALCHEMIST *************

After 60 years of frustration, the amnemonic
Salomon Trismosin finally discovered the secret of
Transmutation....

20 Loth (10 ounces) Lead.
1 Mark unalloyed Silver.
Immerse in Flux for 2 Hours.
Skim the Silver.
Cast your Gold.

As he recorded his formula he smiled...
"Respect, Retribution, Immortality"!!!
(Unfortunately he earlier inadvertantly discovered Disappearing Ink!)

.

Ahhhh....Gone AND Forgotten!!!
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 gilded and gracious host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!!

Brian Miller said...

dolp...lost to the ages...amneumonic....is that a real word...bet he had a hard time learning how to spell his name too...smiles....

mine is up!

Brian Miller said...

margaret....i got held up googling the definition of amneumonic...haha...

hedgewitch said...

I am most pleased with the sonorous spondees of anmenic...amnesiac...anemic--whatever that was, sir. You receive the Trophy of the Golden Quill, and I know you will find an appropriate place to put it.

This was hilarious.

I went with a kinder, gentler version of the universe tonight--but no, there are no pods in the basement:

She Moves

Margaret said...

ha, Brian. But you have to SPELL it correctly in order to look it up :)

And you know what? I couldn't find it on dictionary.com AND googling it still left me wondering... but I think "absent-minded" might work.

OK, G-Man... Thanks for the tongue twister and vocabulary lesson

Here is mine:

See, people are totally wrong when they say, "if you can't remember then it must not have been important." Grrr.

Mine is up

Margaret said...

You can tell everyone is out enjoying a summer night. There aren't many left (unless you live in the south :). I'll be back tomorrow morning.

We have much to discover and many mistakes to make.

Janna said...

I like the picture of the quill writing the stuff in that indecipherable language.

For some reason my favorite part is "immerse in flux". Maybe it reminds me of a flux capacitor. ;)

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

Teresa said...

This, Gentle Reader, is why good memorization skills are so important!

Here's mine: Tantalized

manicddaily said...

Amazing! Amnemonic? Whoa. I kept thinking what is this guy - in utero? (Ha.)

Very clever. Here's mine, though now wish I'd consulted thesaurus first!

Exhausted and relieved at the same time, I WILL have a kick ass weekend, here's my 55

Mimi Foxmorton said...

Hey G-man!

Thanks for the *cool* comment! ;)

I'd LOVE to try a 55! Mayhap this Friday? In sooth, I'd like to blog all day long......but the Real World is really annoying, eh?

I haven't a clue about my blog's tech-ness. I switched my profile to Google+ for easier access but, apparently not. I have 5 blogs so I think that might be the problem.

I have that bloody word verification on at present as a Tattie Bogle (scarecrow) post I did a few weeks back attracted about a ZILLION spams and I can't dodge them.

Any-hoo, thanks for reading my stuff! I'll give it a shot this Friday! ;)

Have a goatie kind of day!
~Mimi

Nessa said...

So, that's what happened to mine the last 2 weeks - disappearing ink. Yeah, that's the story I'm going with.

So transmutation is all abut making up new words?

MorningAJ said...

Oh poor guy! I wonder how many more important discoveries went that way.

I've been away so I'm late arriving. But here's my 55.

sometimes combining inventions is a bad idea!
