55 Words About the Good Old Summertime!

Flash Fiction 55 and Flash Back Friday!

For Flash Fiction, you write a story in exactly 55 words.
For Flashback Friday, reminisce about the old days.

During my 11th summer, I stayed with my sister, Peggie.
Peg had boy, 8 years my junior.
One day I told the boy to go ask for cake for both of us.
He did and was given cake.
I was scolded harshly for sending a messenger.
I received no cake that day.
Think I learned?

Flashback Friday is hosted by Linda and you read more stories at Mocha with Linda.

  2. Oh that's funny! Thanks for sharing and linking up!

  3. Yes, get the cake first and blame the kid? Oh you mean the moral way. my 55 here

  4. I hope you taught the boy how to ask for things without saying, "Tilden said ...!"

  5. Funny, the things we learn and the things we don't! I enjoyed this!

  6. Funny, the lessons we learn, and the ones we don't! Cake would be my best reinforcer.

  7. I dunno..
    Have you sent anyone to fetch you cake lately?
    If not, yes you learned!
    Excellent 55 My Friend.
    Thanks for playing, thanks for visiting, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

  8. Great idea!
    Enjoyed the story and the brevity of it :)

    A famous couplet in Spanish:

    Lo bueno, si breve,
    dos veces bueno.

    If something is good AND brief
    It is twice as good.

  9. Great way to combine two memes :)
