Flash Friday 55: A Letter Home



Dear Mommy and Daddy,

I’ve met someone new while on vacation.  We bumped into each other when a fly tried to land on my ice cream.  He’s protecting me from various flying insects. He’s a record holder in the long jump.  Beneath his rough exterior there‘s a true Prince Charming waiting to emerge.

Love,

Bethany


Note: Bethany is enjoying a separate vacation from her family this week, spending it with a friend on Seabrook Island in South Carolina. I adored this photo she put on Facebook and thought it would make for a cute little 55. Hope you enjoyed it. 

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!

So cute! The first thing I thought of was my cat, who I'd just watched eat a fly right out of the air moments before LOL

Lucky Bethany...I wish I was on vacation today :)

She didn't kiss him did she? Cuz I've heard that whole "frog-to-prince" thing is just a myth!!! :D

Thom said...

I so wasn't thinking that is where you were going with this. I had uglier thoughts LOL This was brilliant my friend. And so appropriate for flies :) Have a wonderful Friday :)
