Flass 55 and Raven

With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were horrible as usual)

Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55. This week's words are: Green goddess, shampoo, filibuster, please and thank you, Operation Marigold, throw pillows, up the creek without a paddle, spandex, ubiquitous, wedding ring, Skittles, lamb chops, stingray, chagrin, clever devil

Thomas Stingray Skittles, clever devil ,ended up the creek without
a paddle when Operation Marigold failed the ubiquitous Green Goddess of spandex throw pillows
and wedding rings.
Thus without a please and thank you and no time for filibuster she turned him into lamb chops much to his chagrin.
Shampoo could not save him.

And Now for something completely different. A flash 55 quivel. Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines. Click on the special words for definitions.

Ode to a Uxorious Husband

Forget her really great booty
And her trully isangelous beauty
Loving her is no duty
Quiddle away your special time
You glabrous piece of slime
As uxorious as you be
She will never love thee
Her heart belongs to another
Cheating now with your brother
She never did love you
She never has been true

Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.


  1. Enjoyed both of these. Great last line to the quivel.

  2. Damn, you dragons never fail to be original and ubiquitous!

  3. That is so good!!!!

    It's tops in my book. What words....what a challenge. Dragons must be really ingenious!!

    Have a great weekend, and thanks for the nice comment.

  4. damn you're good! you dragons have a way with words for sure!

  5. Combining FF55 and Raven's words is something I could easily see myself doing, but I'd have ended up sounding exactly like you.

  6. What a lovely nonsense 55! :)

  7. That was a great 55, and I now have a craving for Skittles.

  8. You are so sagacious...

    Excellent 55 as always.

    BTW, I need a couple of steaks seared. Could you please fly over to Michigan in a bit?

    Have a Great Week-End....G

  9. What great 55. The last line of the quivel is awesome. It's good that she doesn't want to change you Dragons into lamb chops :)

  10. who was shampoo? another dragon?

    I love the ode about the cuckold of the uxorious :D

  11. Dragons write verrrrryyy interesting 55's! :)

  12. I think dragons should have the right to eat cheating spouses.

    And I LOVE your quivel. Nobody does it quite like you.

  13. I never considered Shampoo a lifesaver and this just proves it. :P Great 55. ;-)
