Friday Flash Fif-Tea Five.....

As the Limosine sped briskly down Boston's
narrow streets, the back seat was steeping
with activity...
"Mr. Bigelow! (SLAP) You may NOT taste my
little Red Rose, and please stop staring at
my Tetleys! Also put your Pekoe away, I'm
not putting my Liptons that"!
She said heatedly, then thought.....
("This guy has Salada nerve"!!!!)

Groan on until you're Black and Green in the face....
All this Tea Party talk is sooo inspirational.
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 Herbal Host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Oolong Week-End!!!

She looks like his little teapot is too short and stout for her, or something. As far as 55's go, this one was in the bag.

Yes, I'm playin, but if you are into that kind of Tea Party, perhaps you'd best skip my limiricks on last night's

Debate Fail

Scarlet said...

Monkey Man said...

Groan indeed. HERE is my 55 for this week.

Margaret said...

I hope you make fun of the Occupiers next week. Very cleverly written and I do love me some orange spice tea. I am getting ready for a day trip into Virginia this weekend! I hope to post here tomorrow as my kids and I are going to a movie as they have no school Friday! I think I'm happier about it than they are! Have a nice evening.

lime said...

i am groaning AND smiling. too clever...even the part about being the most herbal host. i just hope this 55 doesn't get you in hot water. i had no idea what you were brewing up but this is steeped in clever puns.

i'm up here

Maude Lynn said...

"please stop staring at
my Tetleys!"

Maybe he should have rolled her some loose leaf to help her simmer down. ;-)

I'm still thinking of a 55 so we'll see if I play or not.

Matt D said...

Well the picture certainly says it all

it does tell a bit more.

Well done!

Margaret said...

The kids are busy cleaning the house (what else is a day of school about?) and I'm here on my computer... they are not happy about it either (maybe some tea will help calm them down?) Ha!

Here is my quick 55:

Now.... back to my regularly scheduled comment...

AWESOME wordplay indeed. You are a man of many layers indeed.

Thnk I'll go steep a little something and enjoy it in a nice hot bath. I go for Traditional Medicinals.

Jannie has posted a 55 today... HERE!!

why'd they have to go and pick "tea party" ~ it used to be such a fun activity for little girls! {no, G! not like the 'little' girl in your 55.}

barely in under the wire, but here's my 55 ~

thanks for letting me play, Galen. have a FABulous weekend.

Hah! This is sooooooo steamy! The in Tea Party deserves this kind of take on its platform/mission/gobbledeegoop. :)

I am sorry to miss 55 this week. Did not mean it as a slight to you, not at all. It's just that I am not the creative genius that Brian is and could not do a combo write!

Have a great weekend.
