Flash in the Pan


“Maxine, I don’t have anything else even remotely your size. I weigh 50 pounds more than you.”

“Terrific. I am going on a blind date in a tuxedo shirt and cargo pants.”

“Well, you can’t go in your swimsuit, and everything in your bag is covered in wet sand.”

“I look like a busboy.”

“Smile. He’ll only see your sparkly personality.”

“I hope he doesn’t ask for me to refill his water before you introduce me.”

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

This is the last Sunday in April and the last flash with a word limit of 75. Featuring the wordย busboy, this flash uses all 75 words.

Just a few more days until the latest Hot Flash! 01MAY13 is also the day the third editionย Wave of Emotion comes off the presses! If you do not have a copy of the first two, stop by RedmundPro to pick up yours. Discover why flashing is so addictive for readers and writers alike. The ebooks of the first edition are always free.

Have you started flashing yet? Stop by the Flash in the Pan page (under the header) and see the whys and wherefores.

Happy Flashing!

Is Maxine talking to a man or a woman? Which is funnier? Have you ever been stuck wearing a friend’s clothes?

  2. well…it’s a blind date, so he might not be that cute afterall ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I can feel her pain. Although I’d like to have a look at the blind date’s face when he/she comes to pick her up.

  4. What a terrific use of busboy, just a look. Why not meet him in a swimsuit though?

  5. Never had to wear a friend’s clothes. And “ouch” when the friend says he will only see the ‘sparkly personality’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. What a fix. Frumpy is what this feels like. sounds like they’re on the beach. I’d be temped to wear the bathing suit with a towel as a sarong. Guess you can’t get into a good restaurant dress up like that though.

    Clever use of ‘busboy’ here. I would never have expected it. I’m giggling all over the place.

    • I think you are correct about the dress code. I can think of a few other solutions for this one. You should know by now, I am loving the surprises in flash! xxx

  7. To me, it sounds like Maxine is talking to a man and this is a great comical use of the word “busboy!” Gave me giggles.. ๐Ÿ™‚
