A tasty 55

Overcome with a passion
few could understand
he began the process
of undressing his victim.
Peeling a layer at a time
to reveal the milky white skin
he so loved to see, feel and taste.
The skin beckoned.
He opened his mouth
and bit hard,
tearing into his target.

God, he loved onions.

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 come back on Sunday to try my Sunday 160.
If you can fill a text message, you can do this.

Bumper Sticker Madness

Driving the U-Haul on Sunday - yes, I am still having to get behind the wheel of a U-Haul, we had more junk to move and, no, I didn't get stuck - I was following a mini van that had one of the most interesting combinations of bumper stickers I had ever seen.

On the left hand side was a sticker that read - "The two voices in my head both say they don't like you".

Then centered on the rear window just to the right of that sticker was a "Coexist" sticker.

What is it with people? Coexist? What the voices inside his/her head are happily coexisting and agreeing that I am not the likable kind?

Or perhaps this is a husband and wife combination who have conflicting issues that need serious resolution. Needless to say, I was not only puzzled, but quite amused. If I weren't on my way to return the U-Haul, I would have followed them in order to take a picture to share with you all.

I personally don't have any bumper stickers. I don't believe in displaying on my bumper my feelings, insecurities, political affiliations or anything else for the world to see. It's my business. I do, however, get a kick out of reading those of others.

Why just the other day as I was allowing a tailgater to pass me by, I noticed she had a sticker that read "If you're going to ride my ass the least you could do is pull my hair." That's my kind of sense of humor. The hair pulling part, not the part that a tailgater has an anti-tailgating bumpersticker. The latter is just irony.

But I must admit, I am confused about the character in one of my favorite old comics - Calvin and Hobbes . You see Calvin everywhere in a variety of situations. Clearly he is now just a whore for money with no true loyalty. He pees on Chevys, Fords, GM's then prays at a cross. Oh, wait now I get it, it's okay for him to do these things because he prays for forgiveness. Near as I can tell that's how Christianity works for some....but that is another blog for another day.

What does your bumper say about you?

Words will never harm you???

The words flew from her lips
with skin piercing velocity.
They ripped and cut and left
gaping wounds that may
take a lifetime heal.
His only recourse – forgive.


This is a Sunday 160.
Take the Challenge if you dare.
