Flash Fiction Friday- techno geeks

every friday write a short story of 55 words, no more no less
and report it to the g-man!


"do you twitter? do you tweet?
did you ever in your life,
think this would be sweet?
my space, face book two words or one?

does it matter when it's all for fun?
emails and blogging twitters or tweets
cyber space is full of new friends to meet.

days without blogging or tweets seem incomplete."


here you go g-man, hope i counted correctly. what do you think? too much technology out there to not play with some of it!!
so here is my gratitude list 5 things i am grateful for to keep me in today;
1. today i am grateful for microwave kettle corn, it is sweet crunchy and delicious, the kids love it too!
2. today i am grateful my gillian's hair is finally long enough to put into one pony tail!!
3. today i am grateful for my driving skills and that i am not an erratic driver.
4. today i am grateful that i was able to give away two cups of coffee, didn't have time to wait for them to be made, had a free coupon so i let someone else have my mocha. i made someones day.
5. today i am grateful i do not have to pay $5000 for braces for "A". she thinks her teeth are crooked, or have a space in them, the dentist said they could work on them but they did not need to, the price was way too high for just a cosmetic fix. i think she has a great smile, what do you think?



she is so self conscious, i am not sure where she gets her perfectionism from, but i know today
mom does not have to co-sign her insecurities. besides i think she has a magnificent smile. it's a good thing she doesn't read my blog or she would kill me if she saw her picture up here!! i am grateful she doesn't read my blog!!

Beautiful smiles sure run in your family.
Thanks for your light-hearted 55 this week, it made ME smile. :-)

Thanks for playing, thanks for visiting, and have a GREAT Holiday.

Love your "twitters-and-tweets" bit of "55".

Your daughter is beautiful! She's probably the only one who doesn't know that (maybe that's a good thing?).

Love your poem..you are brilliant.
Glad you saved some cash...that girl right there: she has a PERFECT smile!!!

Prayer Girl said...

I think your 55 is great - so creative - poetic too.

And your daughter's smile is terrific.
I don't know how old she is, but that may also have something to do with insecurity and self-consciousness.

Thanks clean and crazy,
PG

she's beautiful! don't see any need for braces there either...

loved your 55, very fun!

Lou said...

Arrgg..the teen years, they were awful for me. I had braces AND rubber bands. Now I have a great smile, but not as beautiful as "A."
I think she will come into her own soon enough.

God bless you all, and have a great holiday!

Great 55. Your daughter's smile is fantastic the way it is.

Tall Karen said...

What a gorgeous smile!! I liked everything here today...especially the coffee give-away! I'm a tweet geek, so I get that! Have a fun 4th weekend!

Gin said...

Perfect 55 for this day and age! You daughter is a doll! She has nothing to be insecure about - although I know it is a stage all of us girls go through!

Patrick said...

That was creative 55, loved it!

The smile is perfect as-is....

Indigo said...

Great 55, and she does indeed have an awesome smile. I think at her age they tend to be far too harsh on the outer appearance. I know Skye was. (Hugs)Indigo

Jadey said...

Great 55 and yes there is a lot of technology out there. Your daughter has a beautiful smile. Happy 4th. My 55 is up.

Fandango said...

We dragons draw the line at blogging. We don't twitter and we would never tweet.
Exciting 55

Our 55 is posted.

I liked your 55 but I really think it is exceptional that you were grateful because you could give something away. It makes my heart sing.
