Flash Friday 55: Dream Snippet #1


I am mortified at the filth.

Orange bugs scurry about.

I try to kill them.

Nasty little creatures, they are.

They hide and are terribly difficult to find in the shag carpet.

I know the upstairs is filthy as well.

I wonder if there is time to clean up before guests arrive.

I am worried.


I am participating in Flash Friday 55. This weekly meme is brought to you by G-Man, over at Mr. Know it All. The object is to write a story or prose in exactly 55 words. Come join us and link your 55 in Mr. Know it All's comment section. See you there!

Ugh, what a nightmare. Reminds me of when I cleaned my cat's room the other day, I found all these small bugs under her bed. Ewwww.

I think you need to hire Orkin and a maid service. You are much much much too busy LOL. Excellent 55 my friend. And have a great 4th of July even though you have to work. So do I if it helps matters :( But ending on a positive note...may all of us that have to work enjoy the day and make the big bucks :)

Oh, my. That's almost worse than going to class naked.

Tracie said...

I can't keep my house clean when the kids are home all day. I've surrendered!

Julie Schuler said...

Cleaning anxiety! What a wasted dream, I hate those. I also hate dreams about shopping for groceries.

Eric Alder said...

Ever notice that your house is never cleaner than when company's coming? (And you only clean the rooms they'll see!)

Nara Malone said...

I wonder why the bugs were orange.

Alice Audrey said...

You know you procrastinate too much when cleaning up for company involves a hammer, a screw driver, or a paint brush.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Nice 55. It left me with the creepy crawly feeling.
Have a great july 4th weekend
