55Flash Fiction Friday

Thanksgiving

Driving home from dinner today I saw a man walking down the street all alone.
"That poor man is all alone on Thanksgiving, honey."
"Well maybe he's an asshole", he said.
Later at the video store, he saw a woman walking alone and said, "Alone on Thanksgiving, how sad."
"Well, maybe she's an asshole," I said.

This really happened today as we were coming home from turkey dinner at a friends. I guess it's all about perspective, isn't it? I hope you are all stuffed to the gills and having a wonderful weekend, and if you were alone today, I hope it was because you are an asshole! Be sure to let us know if you played so we can all come over and check out your 55!!!

Hi Susie,

Unfortunately, most who are alone on Thanksgiving aren't assholes, I would venture to guess, and to compound the problem with that, there's plenty of those a-holes that aren't. I wasn't alone.

I have a couple of 55s up.

So maybe he WAS an asshole, maybe she WAS an asshole. I can be mean on Thanksgiving if I want to cant I?
Besides, that FICTIONAL 55 is very personal soooooo....ya know....take it easy there people.

Hope you all had a non assholish Thanksgiving!

Its my blog and I'll be mean if I want to.
