Hot Flash

Giselle was pale when she staggered into the living room. Her hands trembled.


“What is wrong?” Max was afraid she had hurt herself in the kitchen.

“Max,” her voice cracked, “There’s no coffee.”

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

Guys and Dolls, this is the last Hot Flash of the quarter. Weighing in at a paltry 33 words against the whopping max of 50, the feature word this week isΒ coffee.

So, here’s the skinny… When I get back to …my house… I will get my handy-dandy scientific measuring device out of …her room… and choose the winner of the book giveaway. If you have not entered…HURRY! Entries close at 2359 EDT today. There are six prizes up for grabs. Looking for something awesome to read? Here is your chance!

Today is the first day of the last month for this quarter. There are just a few words left and the deadline for getting into this book is the 30th of June. Do not be late. Click the picture for all the words and a long list of fabbo bloggers who have tried their hand at the best of the shorts. Are you flashing yet?

Happy Flashing!

Is that a scary concept for you? *Shudders uncontrollably*

  4. While at-home coffee beats anything available in our burg at the moment, since my TWO favorite coffee shops folded months back, there’s a new MacDonald’s just down the road (UGLY OUTSIDE, bearable inside because the windows are bigger and there’s wifi) where we can go in a pinch. And update the laptop faster with their connection than the one we have here. No need to panic, right? ANY coffee (within limits) is better than none, right?

    • Ugh. I used to think that until I tasted the ash-water which passed for coffee in the last hotel we stayed in Minnesota. *shudder* I am not the only die hard coffee fiend who refused to drink it. Val and I both had juice instead.

  5. Flashing has never been so good πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ lol

    My mouth dropped at the first sentence. Didn’t expect the ending. Awesome flash, Red.
