55 Flash Fiction Friday

Ghana market was hot and sticky. Aisha put her basket down to get a better look at some of the coconuts and papayas that the flies liked just as much as she did.
"It's too hot to shop today," she whined. Walking back to Sia's house, the basket felt heavier than when she had left.

Oh, doncha just love a stowaway? I wish. You know, I would have 20 kitties if I could, it's true. I have this friend that says there is a disease called toxoplasma gandhi that you get from cat scratches and stuff, which makes you want to have too many cats! ...well, I don't know if that is true, but if it is, I must have it. :P
All is well in No Cal. We have not had a summer worth a plugged nickel, and I know it's because of that bloody wolcano! I do not care, I hate being hot, but I will tell you one thing, my garden is a disaster. Anyway I am a little rusty on the 55 action, I hope I done ok!

Have A Lovely Day!

The cat is clearly a feint- under her are the drugs that make the weight.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!

My friend Kalyani is studying massage and she recently told me that in heat our metabolisms are higher but our bld circulation lower so whenm you come in from teh heat to cooler, get your circulation going -- do a little dance!

I LOVE my kitty. May just have to sneak a second one home one day, hee hee.
