Getting Reaquainted in 55

Ever feel like you’re just one step out of sync with the world? Like a shadow on an old television show? 

I’m visiting my daughter this weekend. Hopefully, by February 1st my psyche will be realigned with the rotation of the earth. If not, I will continue to float in a gossamer no man's land.

Not really a story, Mr. know-It-All, but it is in 55.

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. Thanks G-man for hosting.

  10. Sounds like you need to get grounded. Maybe seeing your dd will do it for you.

  12. its nice just to float sometimes. Visiting your daughter is always a nice thing to do and she will halt the float most likely.... mine would anyway. Ha ha.

  14. Oh I've so been there - and may still be there -- maybe I've just gotten used to the gossamer?

    Hope you feel better. :)

  16. Great 55, I've felt like that at times too, as though disconnected from reality as it temporarily warps around me.

    My 55 is HERE

  18. But it is a story. Your personal story.

  19. Great job of evoking a familiar feeling in a limited number of words. It is certainly a feeling that we all have at times.

  20. I often feel like that. I hope your visit is wonderful.

  23. It's that baby, isn't it? We aren't as cute as he is, so we lose out. Come on, who have you known longer? ;)

  24. Or in your case, no woman's land. Hope February makes things better.

  25. You conveyed the feeling well in just 55!

  26. Here's to February 1st bringing that realignment!

  27. Have a great visit, and YES! Here's to February 1st (and January's demise).

  28. Very nice!

    The instructor of the writing class that I am attending mentioned flash fiction. I was able to nod knowingly. But if it weren't for blog reading I NEVER would have known what it was.

    I hope you've had a great weekend!
