Flash 55- The Script

With a nod to Raven and Quilly
( This week's Raven's words were rather nice )

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.

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:Florida, spit, child bride, operatic, busy, holding pattern, sunflowers, ginger jars, office, superintendent
music to my ears, plot, powerful, braggart, super model


It was music to my ears to hear that the busy plot superintendant had put the child bride script in a holding pattern. I'm not a braggart though I own a powerful Florida office handling publicity for sunflowers, ginger jars, and operatic super models. I read that script and I wouldn't even spit on it.


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. Please note this is a quivel it does not pretend to be a poem or even poetic drivel.

Pretty Bad

The paucity of isangelous information
Lead to some hitonious frustration
They arrested the volgivagant youth
Because he acted so uncouth
Bad manners were his sin
But good he was within
Should have arrested the girl
She with the astounding curl
And that mellifluous tiny voice
Could never be detectives choice
But she stole the Royce.


  1. "I didn't do it" was the girl with the curl.

    Mine's posted.

  2. Excellent as usual - though I'm having great difficulty getting my head round operatic super models :-)

  3. I've been told that I've had mellifulous flatulance!!!

    Once again Hot Breath, you've got us Reachin for Roget..

    Excellent 55 as always!

    Thanks for playing, thanks for visiting, and have a GREAT Holiday....G

  4. Are you kidding! There is nothing that won't get published these days. Well, certain tomes written by dragons perhaps..

  5. That girl with the curl again! She lifts a car then picks up a volgivagant youth so he'll take the fall when they get caught. Mr. Roberson tried to tell them that he saw her take his Jaguar. The police wouldn't listen. A few of the people in this neighborhood -- those with the really fancy cars -- have installed video cameras. Sooner or later she'll get caught. I'm hoping it's sooner!

  6. Excellent 55 Fandago. "I wouldn't even spit on it" LOL...too funny Have a happy 4th if you Dragons celebrate it. Eat plenty of bugs :) My 55 is up. I decided to give it a try :) Aloha

  7. LOL I love the way you weave Raven's wordzzle into a 55 - you're so talented!

  8. Hey there dragons,

    Excellent 55. Thanks for checking mine out too. I hope you have a very safe and Happy 4th.

  9. Not even if the script was on fire?

  10. Thanks for stopping by...yours was fun as well, especially the last line. :)

    Ah, you remind me of a bumper sticker which says,"Beware of Dragons for you are crunchy and good with ketchup." :)

    Have a great weekend!
