55 in Fear

It permeated the room.

Curling and twisting

as if it had a mind of its own,

leaving nothing

but destruction in its wake.

Children ran screaming.

Adults cringed in fear

as nausea overtook them.

Alone, I stood before the beast.

“Please,” I pleaded.

“Stop feeding the dog table scraps.

You know it makes him fart.”

This is a Flash Fiction Friday 55.

If you want to know what the hell that means visit g-man. The challenge is on.

Or Try my Sunday 160.

I used to feed our dog "human" food and Hubby was ready to get rid of him. We have him on some food that agrees with our noses and him so we'll keep him. :)

Love this post!

My dog, Skooter, is a farting machine. I think he takes great pride in it.

Tall Kay said...

Very funny 55! I have a girl dog who doesn't fart...maybe it's because I don't give her people food. The vet said it's sooo bad for them.

It's too easy to always point to the dog!

(I thought you were describing cigar smoke to start with. Succinct and clever story)

A dog fart is much better than a dog log I guess.

I'm just glad my 2 Labs can't read...because they'd probably challenge your dog to a contest!

Nice job...have a great weekend...well, after you open the windows. ;)

What a good sense of scene-setting and timing you have! Re: dog farts: I also do the pleading re: don't feed the dogs table scraps! But does my better half listen? NO. Thus cometh the farts.

Monkey Man said...

You guys are killing me. I post some great romantic stuff, some really dark shit, odd slices of life, but what gets you all in a silly dither is a post on daog farts. Don't encourage me.

When I was a kid, we had a Boston Terrier. THAT dog could clear a room. All Boston's have some horrid digestive thing going on, they fart like crazy. Thanks for the memories, MM!

CJ said...

That made me laugh. We used to have dogs when I was a kid, but I just realized that our cats never fart ---or maybe they are polite and do it when we aren't in the room.
