55Flash Fiction Friday

Little Prithi had been wandering through the forest all morning. She was hot, tired, and very very hungry. Suddenly Prithi came to a clearing in the woods, and there on the ground was the largest banana that Prithi had ever seen!
She would not go hungry anymore. Prithi annoyingly notes that the banana tastes fuzzy.


I saw this little handmade felt banana on ETSY, and I just had to have it. Anyone that works that hard hand sewing a teeny little 'nana deserves to have a sale!
The little trunk up elephant is my gift from Mr Ratburns adventures in LA. While wandering in Venice this week, Gary met a man from Tamil Nadu who sells Indian treasures. Boy, was I glad he bought it from an Indian man and not some white tourist charging inflated prices for things not of his own culture.
By the way, elephants come with either their trunk up, or trunk down. Trunk up ~ Good luck, madam!
Have a lovely weekend,
and be sure to let G~man know that you played 55 with us. He is our official 55 Flash Ficiton host from now on. Try to visit everyone's 55s this weekend if you can!

That was a fun 55!

I love the little elephant! I collect elephants - all with trunks up of course.

My 55 is up.

So where is the little donkey? Sorry, had to ask.

How cute is that. So now I know, truck up is a good thing. Well unless the elephant is charging you.

How clever you are there S. Love you 55.

where is the village idiot when a good banana joke is to be made?

how sweet of ratburn to think of you and also wisely buy a trunk up elephant from an actual indian. i think you should hang onto that husband of yours for a while longer.

I think the elephant should call for his monkey friend to help him out of this :lol:

Btw: Come on over - if you like to literary share some local surprises with me (a Troll from Norway, maybe?)

Wishing you a great week ahead too!
