Flash 55 – So Sorry

20100211 023I asked for snow, that’s a fact
I’m really sorry about that.
We couldn’t see the roads
Snow fell by dumpster loads
It made people sad
I was far from glad
In future, I’ll take more care
when putting my wishes out there
Now, I’m asking for Spring flowers
Who knew I had such powers?
flash 55[4] Flash 55 is hosted by G-Man (Mr. Knowitall). The idea is to write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to, take part pop over and let G-man know when you’ve posted your 55. You can click on his graphic, too (I actually figured out how to link to a url in a picture.) Thanks G-man for hosting.

  1. Uh oh. I wished for Florida weather earlier today. Probably should have included a hurricane disclaimer in that, eh?

  2. Wishes are powerful. Nice touch asking for the flowers. We've got lots of showers to help water them.

  3. Awesome awesome awesome awesome awesome.

    Did I mention this is awesome?

    I've been wishing for the weekend all week, and here it is. You're not the only one with magic wishing powers my friend.

  4. Ya clicking your Ruby Red Slippers at the same time? LOL. Great 55 my friend :)

  5. Yes, the one; "Be careful what you wish for..", makes much sense now,;)) I agree with you, I am about to have had it with the snow. Our bay has frozen over, something that happens on average every 30 years. Sigh.
    Stay warm,

  6. hey wow! really really cool!!

  7. LOL! Be careful what you wish for . . . ;-)

  8. Love this....all I can say is be careful for what you wish?!!! Last summer during the drought here, I kept saying "I wish it would rain". Now, we have more friggin' water all around I could plant minnows in my garden and they'd grow!!

    My 55 "I Want No Flowers on My Grave".

    [scroll below my show n tell as always]

    Happy Valentine's Day Weekend!

  9. Lovely, Nessa! You should be up in Vancouver!
    I echo Hootin' Anni! Be very careful what you wish for! I'm pretty sure you will find a classic tale on this theme out on the Web. Google search for "The Monkey's Paw" (sounds like it should be Wilkie Coillins or M.R.James . . but it's A.N.Other, whose name escapes me!)

    Best wishes.

  10. My favorite saying, "your thinking creates your life".......your adorable 55 is a testament that it is true!

    I'm up here:
    Friday Flash 55 ~ The Gift

  11. So then, is it you who has cast a witchy spell over England? Do your powers extend to these green and pleasant lands too? (All of which are white again with all the snow)

    I know who to blame in future!!

  12. The author Doc F refers to is W.W Jacob's

  13. Thanks, CJ. It doesn't escape me any longer!

  14. It would be nice if I had that power, because I will always ask for Spring!

  15. How many 55's did you write for today?...3?
    You're Killin me here!
    I loved it of course...G

  16. was your fault.

    I'm tell'en on you!!!

    Great 55 (even though it's your fault Frosty the Snownman took a dump on the east coast lol)!

  17. I'm looking forward to the flowers. You'll take pictures, right?

  18. Nessa, you are very nice at heart. I am glad you have those powers, could you wish us some nice, TYPICAL, Texas warm spring weather? Please?
    I am even almost sorry about when I am not real nice to you. It is hard to be not nice to a very nice person.

  19. Super-powers, Nessa! (Can you use them to send spring early for ME?)

  20. Careful what you wish for!

    Oh, and thanks. We have Spring Flowers here!

  21. You are obviously very powerful when it comes to wishing. Use your powers carefully.

  22. So it's your fault, huh? You'd better be careful. People will be gunning for you. :)

  23. I'm with ScoMan above in that I have been wishing for a week-end and here it is. Let's put all our wishes together and wish for Spring.

  24. Ahh the power of a wish. It sure does make a pretty picture though.

  25. awesome...i have a picture to go with your 'flower powers'

  26. Dearest Nessa,

    Indeed such powers! lol
    Next time, ask for.....
    ha ha ha.


  27. So you were the one! Nicely done 55, but next time, wish for sunshine and daisies.
