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.

  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,

  7. 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!

  8. 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. 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!!

  17. 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.
