Friday 55

It's time to play "Write a story in 55 words".   When you do, be sure to let the G-Man know. 




From a distance, Jack looked insane.

Sitting at the computer, his arms flailed wildly.

His hands darted back and forth,
slapping the air in front of his face, then by his ears.

Smacking the screen with one hand, he grinned triumphantly,
then screeched in frustration, “Leave me alone!”

Evidently, gnats are spawn of the devil.

Ooh, I HATE gnats! Pesky little devils indeed!

I could never figure out why they swarm around us like that - it's not like they're mosquitoes, who have a reason for seeking us out.

(Maybe they're actually little demons sent here to torment us?)

Fun 55! Have a great weekend!

Ooooh they drive me crazy -- and at night when the laptop is the only light there is, here they come! Jack's right.
