55 Flash Fiction Friday



Flash fiction done in 55 words is hosted by Mr. Knowitall

"I know I'm a perfectionist," Elena said to her husband as they approached the doctor's office, "but I'm not that bad."
"Let's see what the doctor says," answered her husband.
The consultation began.  Then summing up the situation the doctor said, "You know, Elena has always given 110%."
"No way" she interjected quickly, "I give150%!"


I joined this challenge a week or so ago and didn't realize that I was so close to a temporary computer absence.  So this is only my second offering.  But I will be back again right after Thanksgiving.

More Details to come.

They say you should always write about what you know ;)

Excellent story. And we'll miss you while you're away.

A perfect addition to our reading enjoyment 55s. Hope to see you soon. And your computer absence will be 'fixed' in no time!

My 55 is a double whammy this week, two for the price of one. Of course, as always, you need to scroll down below my Friday's Show n Tell.

The link is HERE I'd love to have you stop by for a visit.

I find it difficult to limit a comment to fifty words, let alone write a story. You score 110% with that one. By the way my last comment was referring to the Welsh griffon being on the left not as you said on the right. Sorry I was always pedantic.
For Morning AJ, my anti spam word today is crunised. A good one for her collection.
