Flash Fiction 55


Fifty-five proof 

I'd sip it from a Liqueur Glass
And not swig it down like the clown
The village clown who sits and swigs
He swigs his gin like I'd drink beer 
But I won't even swig my own
anise-flavored Absenthe cause
I'm a tea-totaler straight, a Hill
Billy Boy from the Bible Belt

Today I'm linked with Mama Zen  at the Real Toads, Flash Fiction 55 (link)

-- M.Z's. instructions were:  "Give me something hot and fresh in 55 words; no more, no less."  I did use ONLY 55 words, title included, counted by Microsoft Word.  The logo I used is from her post at the Real Toads link.
 
-- Today's poem is entirely fiction, not one iota relates to ME.

Ah, the good old Bible Belt. They do have great tea. But it is even better spiked. ;).

Coca-cola for me, too, Jim. I want you to know that I was tickled that you compared my wampus cat to Mustang Sally. I think she would have approved.

Coffee and fruit juice for me. I'm kind of watchful of most drinks that look radioactive.

Hi Dr & Mrs Jim :)

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

In addition to basic messaging WhatsApp users can create groups, send each other unlimited images, video and audio media messages :)
