55Flash Fiction Friday

Ok I admit it....this 55 is recycled from last year. School is out, and Little Rita and Mr Ratburn are hanging around. I dedicate todays 55 to them, have a fun summer you two!
She kissed the top of her childs head, then quietly slipped the bribe money into the hand of the trusty bus driver...it was gonna cost her to keep that extra week of freedom, but by Joe, she was gonna have it! Besides, the kids will love a week at Disneyland with "Uncle Bus Driver."

As summer vacations finds us, all over America mothers are screaming out in agony over the loss of their personal freedom and "space." Some of us even have teacher husbands, so we really are in for it!Let's all take a moment of silence to mourn our loss, shall we?

It DOES sound like a Stephen King story...maybe because of Uncle Otto's Truck?? (one of my favorites)

School was out here in Norway yesterday too and this weekend we are celebrating the mid summer. The time when the sun never actually goes down on you. It's normally quite romantic, but today it's poring rain, so there will (only) be wet kisses;-)
