Fall Flash 9

Georgie took the hairpin turn at fifty miles per hour, one for every year he had been on earth and flew off the mountainside. Yesterday he would have taken the same turn at seventy-five. At his birthday, his Mother told him to grow up or she would cut him off.

He considered options, regress to his previous tight-ass ways or continue to have fun. He chose money over joy, look what it got him, damn.

  1. Bwahahaha! Oh, my, I have tears in my eyes! I love this.

    Moms are such hard asses. 50? What’s her hurry?

    Nicely flashed Val, but then I would like this one πŸ˜‰

  3. I wonder if Georgie was the guy we picked out of a thorn tree on a mountain roadway in India. I think India invented hairpin turns. lol

  4. Money over joy … seems we often fail in picking the right choice in that situation, don’t we?

  5. First my eyes bulged in horror, then I laughed; I couldn’t help myself. He decides to take the high road (sort of) but it backfires. Delicious tale, Val, I mean, the poor guy… πŸ˜‰

  6. Did I miss Fall Flash 8?

  7. He chose money over joy —- good for Georgie

  8. Brilliant Val. There appears to me no end to the parade of your awesomeness.

  9. Very clever … πŸ™‚

  10. Smart move George.
