Flash in the Pan

However long he’d been on the floor was a mystery.

Not sure which hurt worse -his back, hands or knees- but he did know one concept was indelibly etched in his mind. He would never again leave even the most microbial scuff mark on any woman’s kitchen floor for as long as he lived.

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

December’s limit is 100 words. This half-pint flash weighs in at 53. The word for this week isΒ mark.Β Today, I chose noun over verb. Which one will you choose?

Who made you scrub scuff marks off the floor? Grandma? Mom? Wife? Do you mop or scrub the floors?

  1. Scrubbing or mopping depends on my mood, typically it’s scrub. Then it’s wondering how grown people do not know how to stay off a wet floor.

  4. At first I read it as if the guy was knocked out on the floor and had just arisen. That would make her a pretty obsessive housekeeper.

  5. One of the little-known facts about me (ask my friends who visit) is that I love a clean house. I have 3 vacuum cleaners, 2 identical Bissel sweepers, and at least 3 mops with accompanying buckets. And the most neglected floors on the planet. I blame an unpaved driveway and a muddy yard for putting off that chore as long as I can stand to. Any wonder I stay frustrated?

    • You are a woman after my own heart. While vacuuming is on the OCD list, mopping… I would prefer to be beaten all day with a rubber hose.

  6. Poor man!
    I guess that’s why my dad always scolded me when I forgot to wipe the floor after mopping it.
