55 Friday Flash Fiction - Man's Best Friend? - 9/10/09

Each week G-Man of 55 Flash Fiction Friday challenges us to write our thoughts using only 55 words.

Most of my belongings are shit. My newest vehicle is 10-years old. My TVs are neither high-def nor plasma. I have indulged myself the single luxury of 800-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. Skooter is not allowed on my bed linen. When he is disgruntled or annoyed with me, he cuddles himself up on my pillow, defiantly.

Dude, you should be ashamed. How can you look at that sweet little face all puddled up in that pillow and not just want to give him the run of the bedroom? Shame, shame. Buy a new pillow or sheets even. Give up the pillow. Hell, sleep on the floor. That's what I do. It's not that bad really. I've learned to love the floor. Couple of pillows, when the girls aren't sleeping on them, big blanket, when they let me use it. You'll adapt.

Have you ever slept on 800 count Egyptian cotton sheets? No way am I giving them up. This is my one sanctuary.

Skooter is too damn cute to scold ~ even on an 800-count pillow. He was such a good boy though...great 55 and loved the video to go with it.


My 55 for this week is here.

Loved this 55.
We have a dog named Maggie, an English Springer Spaniel.
She is not allowed on our new couch.
When we catch her on the couch she acts just like scooter. As if to say " If I must". My wife took one look at the clip and started to laugh. That's Maggie she said.

But it’s a groaner.

You GO scooter!!!

And really, it's not the toys you have when you leave,...it's what you hold worthy in your heart...just LOOK at Scooter. HE'S more important than a plasma TV if you ask me.

Mine's posted too. As always, scroll down beyond my show n tell for Friday!

Awww! Scooter!
What was he annoyed at you for?

myrtle beached whale said...

It could have been any of a dozen things. I think this particular time was that I left him alone to go to the movies.
