Flash 55 Friday-The Carp

Because it is Flash 55 Friday Pigeon Falls for the Day is written in 55 words.

Sally broke the silence after the judges left and said “ Of all the girls in town we are cursed with scaevity. That tramp Samantha did it to us and she will pay."
Nancy said " I think we did it to ourselves and I think we need to change."
The other girls thought she was insane.



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. Here is my first story:
The fisherman's wallet slipped out of his back pocket into the lake. When he tried to grab it a carp leaped up and flipped the wallet to another carp .
The wallet was tossed from one carp to another carp for several minutes.
This was of course,



the first known example of



Carp to Carp Walleting.


Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the Fourty First chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood.

The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

King underwear stood in his underwear.
He wasn't going anywhere.
Less people stop and stare.
He had no clothes or crown
All he could do was frown
They even took his nightgown
Heads will roll he roared
As dragons overhead soared
At least he wasn't bored.
Then Sir Laughsalot returned
the king his ears burned.

Horay for Nancy. One bad apple changed out of a half dozen is pretty good.

I am not so sure those girls are cursed with anything obsolete. They don't seem smart enough to figure that out.

"Obscene means “offensively or grossly indecent, lewd.” It is probably connected with the Latin scaevus, on the left. That Latin word also led to the now-obsolete word scaevity, meaning awkward, perverse, and unlucky." WORMALL, a blog about the English Language.

Good for Nancy! I'm a bit worried about myself -- the Carp to Carp Walleting took me a few seconds to get and then, you're right, I groaned! LOL
