Flash in the Pan

The entire house was spotless. Dinner was warm and waiting. The children were stashed for the weekend with her mother.

She ran upstairs to put a coat of gloss over where her cigarette had rubbed away her lipstick and a spritz of perfume before floating downstairs.

When he drove up, she shook the martinis. As he walked into the study, he frowned. “Let me guess. Overdrafted your account? Wrecked your car?” He dropped his briefcase in the chair, “Oh, damn. Your mother isn’t here, is she?”

Why could he never be satisfied with her genuine signs of affection?

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Why is he such a curmudgeon? Do they love each other? Would you like to come home to dinner and martinis with no children home? Are you flashing?

  2. This made me laugh. Perhaps it just hit too close to home for me to consider it fiction!

    Loved it!
