55 Flash Fiction Friday

The Special Olympics!
They had been training for this all day. Hours of mental preparation were about to pay off. They were of one single mind, purpose, goal. In an explosive fury, they hurtled toward their destination. Only one would get the prize.
Edging out her opponents with an expert elbow jab, the bubblebath would be hers tonight!
This is one of my all time favorite books from when LR was little! With one bathroom, I can certainly relate to this poor mama elephant who just wants five minutes peace!

Have a lovely weekend!

expert elbow job...me being the pervert that I am, when I read it quickly I thought it said something else...something very un-Susie-like. :)

Good story!

All those nights in the mosh pit finally paid off. Nice one Susieji (you tease).
My newest installment is submitted for your approval.
Have a great weekend!

Ah, see I read it a different way. The soaking in the tub, although a pleasant thought, does not hold the same meaning. I had in mind when you as a family first walk into the house, there is only one bathroom, and everyone has to go. Elbows would so be called for.

But I will let you have your wonderful bubble bath. Try not to prune up. Have a great weekend.

Susie, from reading your post this past week, it sounds like you need a bubble bath lol.

I will have to add this to my list of reads. Is it better than "The monster at the end of this book starring lovable furry ole grover?"

Have a great weekend.

Akelamalu is right... that "expert elbow jab" is a touch of brilliance. A fun 55, Susie. It's good to see you writing them again.
