55 Flash Fiction Friday - 2/19/09

Check out 55 Flash Fiction Friday. The idea is to write a story in 55 words. Very fun and challenging. Give it a try and I guarantee you will get a visit from the G-Man. Here is mine for this week.



At sunrise
Skooter and I walk
to his pooping ground.
Early rising squirrels cavort.
Skooter does NOT like rollicking forest creatures.
Skooter is NOT politically correct.
Skooter profiles squirrels.
To Skooter, there are NO good squirrels.
Skooter does NOT practice Diplomacy.
Skooter does NOT negotiate with squirrels.
ALL squirrels are terrorists.
ALL squirrels need chasing.

Light-Saber wielding squirrels are something to fear indeed MBW!!!

And to your credit you clearly stated your case in 55 words.

Thank you so much for for being such a loyal and regular player.

Have a Wonderful Week-End...Galen

I've heard that squirrels are rats with furry tales! :)

LOVE this 55...My poor lab has no chance with the squirrels in my backyard. They run across the fence like circus acts and safely jump up to their tree. You know they are just sitting up there on a limb laughing down at my poor Frisco! :D

The squirrels actually terrorize Skooter. They wait until he gets about two feet from them and then they shoot up the tree. He honestly believes he can catch one of them. He never gives up.

Oh my goodness! This could be a 55er written for my Percy. All squirrels are the enemy. We found a toy squirrel for him a couple of weeks ago. All you have to say is: "Where's the squirrel?" And he hunts the stuffed one down and attacks. Oh, happy day! D

Squirrels must be a nuisance because this is the second thing I've read in a week, where Squirrels are 'IT'.
