Hot Flash!

“I bought you the perfect gift. It’s a fully automated house helper.”

“Humph, perfect, you say?”

“What’s wrong with it?”

“Two words: No remote.”


Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

This is the first of this quarter’s Hot Flash! words. Against the 50-word upper limit, this little number squeaks in at 24. The feature word isΒ remote.

The theme of this quarter isΒ Boys and Their Toys. If you missed the first word, stop by Flash is Back! All deadline information is updated on the Flash in the Pan page at the left link under the header image. Join us for another full run of flash prompts!

Happy Flashing!

Have we become so lazy as a society we always need a remote? Who remembers the remotes which were nearly as big as the telephone book? Who remembers telephone books?
