Flash in the Pan

The officer stared incredulously.

“First, she slit my tires and poisoned my dog. Next, she called my mother and gave her a heart attack. When I went to the hospital, she burned my house down. After that, she escaped from jail and broke in my new house and used DVDs to put subliminal messages in my mind. So, tonight, I called the police and hoped you got here first or she’d have kidnapped me and made me elope since she already tested my blood and bought the license.”

“We’ll keep you safe ’til the doctor arrives.”Β And brings meds.

Welcome to "Flash in the Pan"

Welcome to “Flash in the Pan”

We are nearing the end of the first month of the new quarter. This flash comes just under the 100-word upper limit at 99. The featured word this week isΒ mind.

Have you been checking out the new entries? We have some newbies on board this quarter. Are you going to be flashing with us before the end of the year? Be sure to check out the Flash in the Pan page for rules and how to.

Happy Flashing!

Who is really out of their mind: the complainant or the woman being reported? Did the police respond appropriately? Could you keep a straight face?

    This is too funny. Who is crazy indeed? Not the poor abused fellow (I feel sorry for him.). The police aren’t too hot either. Hopefully, the doctor is smart(er). πŸ˜‰

    • *giggles* This one made my eyes water as I wrote it. I have yet to read it with a straight face. πŸ˜‰ xxx

  3. I can usually keep a straight face. People around me seem to have trouble with that, though. πŸ˜‰

  4. Hard to say. Maybe they’re both crazy.

  5. This reminds me of the episode of the Big Bang Theory where Sheldon called the cops when someone hacked his world of war craft account. How does one write a flash in the pan?
