Flash 55 Friday - Communication

This 55 is dedicated to all of us parents who have to say "no" sometimes.

"Lori! Do I have to spell it out for you?" Her mom stated with firm conviction.
Lori was relentless, "but mom, all the kids are going; it's not fair!"
"Lori, that's enough; we made plans for the family this evening. You're not going."
Lori left the table hurriedly, no longer interested in eating her lunch.


Friday Flash 55 is a fifty-five word story posted every Friday. To join in the fun, create and write any story you like in 55 words; no more, no less. Using this link, tell Mr. Knowitall a.k.a. the G-Man, by leaving a comment on his own Flash 55 post.

Kids have to hear no once in a while, or else they'll think you don't care.
Excellent 55 Buzzard.
Thanks for playing, thanks for visiting, loved the pic, and have a Kick Ass Week-End...G

Well, the picture says it all! Nice 55, Buzz.

I remember those arguments well. Always won, of course.

Mine is up now too. Looks like everyone is trying to get done by midnight!

I don't know what came over me, but when I read it I was like "that's so unfair! why doesn't she get to go there too!" i know that was not the effect I was supposed to have, but i'm a teenager too and I can relate more to the girl's point of view.

I had this when I took my son to school at 11, we were late so he didn't to get the desk he wanted so his life was ruined - it wasn't! See if you can spot the lyrics in my 55 words

Jessie said...

Oh, that is SO teenager-ish! The only reason mine never did it was that they didn't think of it! Excellent 55.

Monkey Man said...

Awesome!! I have two teenagers, so this rings true. My 55 is also up. You can find it HERE.

I love kids...I seem to be a kid magnet. Kinda weird sometimes since we weren't able to have kids.

Then again, I'll never have someone glare at me and shout, "It's all YOUR fault!" :)

Have a good weekend.

hey you, i'm still trying to recover from your searing faux pas...it's hubby who just turned 55, not me!! all vanity aside i did hit the big 53 a few weeks ago but the volunteer firefighters in my town didn't seem to be overly concerned...i'm just saying ;)
have yourself a great weekend!
