“I’d like a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate shake.”

Frowning at her, the librarian responded, “This is a library.”

Chastened, the blonde whispered, “I’d like a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate shake.”

55 fiction is a very, very short story of exactly 55 words. It needs to have a character, conflict and resolution.

Life's Ups and Downs

My life can be quite tragic. People are constantly using me without so much as a “Thank You”. They just leave me and go about their business. Worse, they feel the need to push my buttons!

Relax! I will get to it!

I so hope in another life I am something other than an elevator.

Since I met you in 7th grade speech class, you’ve always been there for me. Its almost like you know me inside out…and can pick out a song that speaks to my heart and thoughts. What would I do with out you to change my mood or commiserate right along with me? Oh, my radio.
