55 Flash Fiction Friday - Necromancy - 10/22/09

Each week G-Man of 55 Flash Fiction Friday challenges us to make sense using exactly 55 words. I put a bit of a twist on it this week. One of my loyal readers, Lena, selected the subject for my submission this week. She chose Necromancy of all things. I gave myself five minutes to come up with this, so it is not a masterpiece. I love taking requests.

He had an extraordinary capability.
He could transport himself into the arena of whatever genre of movie he viewed.
He had journeyed to Hogwarts and Tatooine, walked the Field of Dreams and the streets of Casablanca.
He avoided certain films.
He had no taste for necromancy.
No interest in seeing “Dead People all the time.”

I hated that movie!!
You know whats funny?
Tonight on Classic Turner, "The Purple Rose of Cairo" is playing.
That movie was based on this very same premise....
Excellent 55
You Rock Rick!!
Thanks for this fine contribution, and have a Kick-Ass Week-End...G

Again, an outstanding offering. Just think what you'd have come up with had you taken the time to open a beer and sit on the balcony with Skooter. Whitmanesque, I'll wager. As done, still, exceptional effort. I love Third Eye Blind, by the way.
