Flash 55 Friday - After dinner thoughts...

Karen sighed, as she carefully draped the kitchen towel over the oven handle to dry. Dinner was done, laundry washed and folded, and the awful mess cleaned up in the kitchen. If Ken would have been more receptive, she thought, we could have avoided the whole episode. She just wanted to take that walk now.

This reminds me of an Oprah book I once started at Barnes & Noble and never finished.

Great mysterious piece. Sad, of course. But well done, and effective.

Clever picture and a 'ouch' story.To hear or read my non-PC illustrated Friday 55 click here. Warning you may have to read the footnote after to make sense of it!

Ha! Would have meant something else entirely without the visual to go along with it...

Nice job on the 55!

Hi Buzz,
An awful mess indeed. And from nothing to do with dinner, methinks. Chillingly effective. Questions hanging like a good 55 does.

Oh, this leaves me wanting more of the story because my mind sees that picture and is thinking dark, dark thoughts.
