Friday Flash 55.....


(Circa 1962..A dark deserted NYC street at 3:00 AM. Two strangers approach.)

"Pardon me, do you have a match?"

'I use a lighter'.

"Better yet"

'Until they go bad'.

"X-55?"

'Comrade'

"You have....*The Plan* ?"

'Yes, I have *The Plan* with me. In this valise is *The Plan* for total
world domination.......'
Code Name: Amway!!!!!



I'm curious....Has anyone ever offered to show you *The Plan*?
If you or anyone you know has a plan, or has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the most Multi-Level Marketing host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

Ah, the super secret spy stuff can be so disappointing. I bet 007, or Boris and Natasha, never sold Amway. A most sinister 55, Mr. G.

I'm playin--just a poem, nothing crazy:

Nobody ever tells me anything, and I quit planning after they always went awry.

Mine is up, and I'm trying this link thing. HERE

Bodhirose said...

No, never wanted to go with the "Plan". Aren't all those plans shaped like pyramids? You can spot 'em a mile away!

Here's my 55 G-Man: http://bodhirose.wordpress.com/2012/11/29/reprieve/

Ha ha, not to keen on Amway... but the Amway Grand Plaza in Grand Rapids is NICE! I stayed there once.

Timeworn

Janna said...

It would probably be a lot of fun to be a spy...

All except for that whole part about getting captured and placed in front of a firing squad or having to bite a cyanide capsule so they can't torture the secrets out of you.

Other than that, though, tons of fun!

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

Alice Audrey said...

LOL! Too funny.

Mine is up

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

So that's what Amway was really all about! Somehow, I'm not surprised.

ReBelle said...

I retract the Sellers remark - Wells and Cotton are better fits.

I'm up.

Lydia said...

Altogether eerie! No one has asked me about The Plan, although in job interviews I was asked what my five and ten year goals were (an aggravating question for one with No Plan!!!).
Have a lovely spontaneous weekend, G.

Jinksy said...

HERE you are then, peoples - or rather, here I am - unplanned, as ever...

Mr. Charleston said...

Circles and arrows to success. However, it must be said that at one time Amway was second only to Microsoft in creating millionaires.

I'm not telling, you can't make me, I'll never talk!! ;)

Mine's up.

the walking man said...

Damn all this time I thought it was Weight Watchers. always looking in the wrong direction.


I actually did PLAY and wax poetic both this week but yours is on top.

Hmmm that might not be a good way to say that.

Nimue said...

Damn ! no one told me any plan !!

Anyway , care to read some Goals ?

hope said...

No plan...then again, I work in local government and that seems to be the motto. :)

Mine's up. Happy weekend!

Other Mary said...

Plan? There's a plan? Well, here's my 55 words worth



lime said...

oh dear god, yes, i've endured a presentation of "the plan." true believers can never quite understand why someone might not be interested.

Flash 55 has become a tradition for many. I did manage to get one done as well. PEACE IN OUR TIME

manicddaily said...

Ha- it's a good thing that one of them wasn't just a smoker, looking for a light! Though always a bit worrisome when world domination seekers happen onto each other!

Here's mine. Hope you are well.

Mama Zen said...

Oh, I didn't see that coming!

Grandmother said...

Oh, yeah! I know all about the plan but this was a clever take on it!

Doctor FTSE said...

Would I write stuff like this if there was a plan?

Linc said...

I am *always* in for a new and exciting plan! Here's mine: Risk Management

GAB said...

I'M OFFENDED! I AM THE PLAN!

Lady In Read said...

ha ha.. the code name does seem perfect for this plan of world domination..
For myself, I have no plan.. I seem to keep planning on making plans but never get around to the actual plan:)

Good old pyramid schemes.

Jannie Funster said...

ah, good... it's working again for me.

O.M. Freaking God. I went to a meeting of The Plan once. At my cousin's place -- God love her. She ended up losing about a grand when all was said and done.

WONDERFUL write, G-Man.

I wrote a poem recently. It turned out to be about 55 words.it's here.

I thought I would come by and offer my humble 55
