Flash 55 - Round Red Robin 0001


Round Red Robin watched the clock flip to O-two-hundred hours then his forehead struck the top of the sticky bar. Every year, he wanted to drink enough to help him forget Juli’s death but he never did.


The bartender rousted him. Robin mouthed off, got punched in the teeth and thrown out on his ass.

  12. Hi Vanessa ~~ Nice to see this and to hear from you. This reminds me of the school days when the fad was to wear a string necklace of strung chicken teeth.

    Since this is # 0001 I am thinking it will be a long series like you comic strip. That goes and goes. But it will be slow reading if only once a week and then only 55 words (like my Xentor Tales were/are).

  13. I feel bad for the bird, but some critters sure don't know when to put down the bottle!

  14. Reminds me of a funny quote, " Ah, memory impairment; the free prize at the bottom of every vodka bottle!" -Sheldon Cooper
    I guess it didn't quite work for RRR though.
