Fall Flash 5

“Dammit, I did it again.”

Jannelle stared at the crumpled garage door. She wondered how she would explain to her father who had just replaced the last one she ruined. It really wasn’t her fault she thought to herself.

First Tooty called, then Davy texted her, then Bobby called and she had to have a three way with him and Tooty.

How could she remember not to move forward into the door during all that?


Flash in the Pan is brought to you by the amazing Red of M3 fame, to join in the fun read the rules at the link provided and get to flashing!

The Flash word is Forward . The word limit is 75 words. This one comes in at exactly 75.

  1. Bwahaha! At least it was the garage door and not an oncoming semi… this time. Reminds me of a story of a flat squirrel…

  2. Real life? Oh, boy! Definitely amusing.

    • Do not make me tell stories on myself, yes real life. Yes, I ran into the garage door. Yes it was because I failed to put the car in park before grabbing my purse and the ringing telephone, How stupid, right?

  3. Ah Oh! Jannelle is in deep do do again! lol

  4. This is so realistic, Val. As much as I tut tut her multi-tasking, her character seems so innocent but lackadaisical, I like the girl. Awesome flash.

    If you’re going to park, park don’t talk 🙂 It reads much better when
    the word shoot is added, but I don’t think spaghetti westerns fit this
    FTP do you Val? 🙂 Great flashing as always my great friend 🙂

    • Thanks Andro. I agree, put it in park not forward! Stop multi-tasking in the dang car. I think unfortunately we all do stupid things in life and sometimes even adults forget we don’t have super powers.

        I haven’t had one single update for your blog
        and I am following you too 😦 Mind you I must
        admit that although I have posted a few, I have
        not been online much lately, been too busy 😦

        Glad I called in this evening though, as all of
        your writing is a treat and I have had fun reading
        your words my sweet friend 🙂

        Andro xxxx

        • That is very strange. I had that problem a few weeks ago, had to go through my entire list and reset everything to daily then set everything back. I am noticing the problem again. Noticing you haven’t posted in some time, or have you?

          • Gray Dawster says:

            Yes I have posted a few but I have not been visiting
            many Spaces but after this weekend I am hoping to
            change all that 🙂

            There are a lot of glitches in WP these days 😦 Grrrr

            Andro xxxx

  6. Well now … there’s something i didn’t anticipate! 🙂 …. and cheers to Bobby’s luck.

  7. I can’t ell you how much I could do flash fiction, or fiction of any kind, for that matter. Well done, Val!

    Hugs from Ecuador,

    • Personally Kathy, I think you could do wonderful Flash. You have a marvelous mind, great life experiences and a wonderful sense of the ridiculous.

      That is really all it takes!
