Friday Flash 55.....



Had I met the dame in a bar, I'd have brushed her aside like a piece of lint.
But there she stood in my office doorway. Young, almost pretty, and not wearing
nearly enough make-up. In spite of her drab look, she was exceedingly friendly.
Sometimes the friendly ones are the most dangerous.....


Note to self: You listen to WAY too many old radio dramas!!
If you or anyone you know is overly dramatic, 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 gracious host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!

The understated are always the most dangerous! Watch out for those natural girls.

Mine is HERE.

You're lucky she wasn't all over you like a cheap suit.

I'm playin--with a political one with a bit of bad language, so feel free to avoid should such things not be up anyone's alley:

Margaret said...

I'll try again - THREE deletes! UGH So sorry.

You should see your plain Jane at happy hour - you wouldn't recognize her!

I have two tonight as last week I accidentally wrote two for you :) Some people may have already read the one with Sebastian:

The Eastern Breeze

and I whipped this one up this afternoon:

Listen

and Brian has already visited both (just trying to save you some time, Mr. Miller :)

Myrna R. said...

Wouldn't mind being almost pretty like her, dangerous too.

Back again. Nice. Have a great weekend.

Mary said...

Ha, I do think you might be right, G-Man.

Your 55 flashed through my head in black and white, Galen. I loved it! Beware the friendly sorts. :)

My 55:

That is why I endeavor to be a bitch as much as possible.

Here is my offering:

G-Man said...

Well Brandi Dear, you do a DAMN fine job!!!

Alice Audrey said...

I'm over dramatic all the time. :)

Mine is up

Ann (bunnygirl) said...

Don't get all excited. She probably just wants to borrow your stapler. :-)

In a pinch, I guess you could try Courting her.

Janna said...

As far as I know, I've never been described as "exceedingly friendly", so I guess you're safe.

Maybe.

They also say you have to watch out for the quiet ones... and I've been described as "quiet" plenty of times.

Sleep with one eye open.

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

Lydia said...

You'd have brushed her aside? Jeez, I think she's quite pretty, reminds me of Paul McCartney's wife, Nancy Shevell. I don't know..... but I do know that your 55 made me think about what makes guys tick!

Mine is: emptying

If you hadn't posted first i would have thought we wrote companion pieces by design

Fireblossom said...

A piece of lint? That's harsh!

Mine's up!

Sounds like most likely to score to me!

Vanessa V Kilmer said...

Be careful. Miss Moneypenny will write about you in her Diaries.

Flash 55 - τρεισκαίδεκα

G-Man said...

Vanessa?
How did you type in cyrillic?

Linc said...

"Sometimes" they're the most dangerous??

Wonderful addition to the collection, G-Man.

Mind if I play this week? Emergence

Kerry O'Connor said...

Hi G-Man, I have a little something for you today.

Cheers

Mama Zen said...

Did she buy the car, G-Man?

G-Man said...

MZ.....Of course she did...:-)

Mama Zen said...

I've got one up on my poetry blog, G-Man!

Other Mary said...

Hmmm...I think I'm with Lydia, I think she's beyond "almost pretty."
Anyway, better watch your back G-Man!

Wishing Well

Susie Clevenger said...

Hmmm...friendly can deceive. This is my first time here. So here is my freshman effort.

I always think it's the girls most dressed up that are the most dangerous.

A piece of lint! Oh Galen--too cruel! I have been listening to Radiolab -- at least last night ==so interesting.

Loved your Noirish 55--I haven't listened to so many radio dramas but have read more than share of detective novels.

Here's my very belated one:
