Friday Flash 55.....


(There they are...
All cozy and lovey-dovey.
That lying cheating bastard of a husband.
And with My own bitch sister!
Lets see how they like the Hemlock Hi-Ball
I've made them.)
"OK, here's the plan, you take your sister
shopping. When you get back, the guests will be
hiding for her Birthday Party".


Sometimes things just aren't how they appear!
When was the last time you heard the term Hi-Ball used?
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 Hi-Ballin' host from coast to coast....
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

Monkey Man said...

Hemlock Hi-ball! Good thing she wasn't packing.

HERE is my 55 for this week.

Jannie Funster said...

Hi-ball glasses. Lo-ball glasses. Flutes, tumblers and all those fancy beverage containers. All I have in my house ar plastic Walmart blue cups. And metal camping fare. But they get the job done! Margartias, anyone?

Sherlock Hemlock!

I have no 55 up yet.

I'm on vacation.

And saying hello!!

It's fun to say "Hemlock Hi-Ball" over and over again.
(*pauses for a moment, mindlessly repeating...*)
Oh! Right... the rest of my comment...

Thanks for another Friday 55!

Clean Sweep

Millie said...

Sisters can be a problem. Luckily mine is the herd queen, so she's a big benefit to me. The human wrote a 55 here.

TALON said...

lol! I loved it. That's exactly the right story for that photo, Galen. Silly son-of-a-gun and his silly lover picked the wrong spot for their tryst.

Lydia said...

A woman's worst nightmare, one made for a Hemlock Hi-Ball (that is so clever!).

The last time I heard the term Hi-Ball was when I was a little kid and my stepfather was a bartender in a Reno casino. It was one of the drink names that perplexed me, along with Grasshopper and Tom Collins!

I'm back this week. Have a great weekend!

Scott M. Frey said...

lol too funny! My 55 is on my blog at

Scarlet said...

Whew.. fun post.

Okay, grasshopper here. I really plan to play along but got stuck doing Ghazal in D'verse.

Here is my post:

Have a great weekend.

hope said...

Fortunately I have a good husband...and a sister he can't stand. :)

Mine's up. Happy weekend!

Daydreamer said...

Hi there G-Man,
I smiled at your post, karma is a biotch...LOL
Haven't taken part in one of these for a while, thought I'd give it a go this week though. :)
Here's my 55 Enigma

Unknown said...

High Balls! I've heard of 'em. Unfortunate name for an adult beverage I presume.

Finally made it up this morning. My little work of art can be found HERE

gautami tripathy said...

I totally like dark! I thrive on it!

Here is mine:

dead woman returns

hedgewitch said...

That is a classic pic my friend, and you've written an ode to the woman scorned which I for one will toast with a high ball--hemlock is minty fresh, too.

Sorry not to play this week--you are always a cheeseburger in paradise, not chopped liver--but I've had a computer for about three hours over the last three days, and that gazelle, or ghazooki or whatever liked to waste every brain cell I had. I'll be bock.

Pat Hatt said...

fun play on the pic and the rhyming cat gave the 55 a go as well.

RNSANE said...

Ohhhh, hemlock! As good as arsenic! You lethal devil, you.

Mine is at:

Have a riotously fun weekend!

Yvonne Osborne said...

When my parents had parties and my sisters and I could only eavesdrop from the stairwell or from under the table, they mixed highballs and plucked ice cubes from the ice bucket with fancy tongs and played the piano and sang and danced. In looking back, I think they had more fun at their parties then we do nowadays.

Hemlock highballs are an evil thought which makes for a bloody good 55.

I had a minute between pulling and beets and picking basil and thought I'd say hi.

Akelamalu said...

Revenge is best served cold (and wet in a Hi-ball glass! LOL

Mine's up.

izzy said...

Great one! -your mind is so evil sometimes-
I am having trouble with getting on line, may try to one tomorrow.
If not have a great weekend!

secret agent woman said...

Good gracious - a little venom in that one!

Isabel said...

here's mine

have a great weekend

Margaret said...

HA! You and I are on similar wave lengths. I couldn't contain my poem "The Date" to 55 words though! Busy moving kids into dorms... Hope to play next weekend.

... it's EXPENSIVE for them to "move out!"

Pheromone Girl said...

Awesome - I love the point you make. I'm sure it applies, most of the time....
