I love this blog–and the mere thought of how important it is to love the sound of laughter.

Don't read this blog….if you hate the sound of laughter.

“Ok people, lets get our weekly Hypochondriacs Anonymous meeting started.
We have a few business issues to get out of the way before we begin our session.

Remember, while there is a social aspect to the this group please exclude your feelings from your outside discussions. From what I hear quite a few of you got together with Howie Mamson for coffee last week and as a result this meeting is ten people short.

I believe all ten checked themselves in to City General with heart palpitations. The next time any of you see Howie, please remind him what the thought of caffeine does to him let alone drinking it.”

“Anyone have anything else to add? Yes, Stuart? Do you have something?”

“Yes, I do Abe. I just wanted to add that I had coffee with Howie and the group but I’m fine.”

“Very good Stuart, you’re making progress.”

Flash Fiction. Let’s give it a try, sounds exhilarating.

Written Words Never Die

The train fumed angry hissing steam as it slowed to a squeaking stop.

From the carriage, Madrilène scanned the busy platform. What are the chances of seeing him in a city swollen with people?

Then, she felt a burning sensation on her cheek.

There stood Ben, with a drooping cigarette on his lips and open newspapers in his hands.

He smiled.

She froze and felt her heart race.

“Hello, Hon.” Michael had returned with their coffee.

She greeted him with a sweet smile, sweeter than usual. As Michael settled, she casually turned towards the platform.

Ben nodded and stepped back.


Have not written flash fiction in ages. Last Saturday, I read Janna TWrites (click on the link) and decided to dust off the cob webs and try my hand.

Do pay Janna’s blog a visit – I love especially her flash fiction.
