DRINKING ALCOHOL TAUGHT ME HOW TO FLY
THEN IT TOOK AWAY THE SKY

"I'll drink to That!"





What is bothering you, Steve?

It's my latest addiction. Ya see, I have become a Blogger. It is what I LOVE!  

I used to say "I'm an alcoholic".  But I realize now that other huge monkey-monstrosities always were, and remain evermore, on my back. Whatever they might be named "I want more of them".

Flash Fiction Friday 55
is a story written in exactly 55 words.
Let the G-Man know if you write one
and read the ones of your fellow writers.


Peeps--Stay with me now, my "taxing" daze are over.
Love.  Peace.  And the tenderest of thoughts!!

Blogging is proof that some addictions are okay.
Nicely done.

The blogging wakes me up at 430 in the morning-no alarm clock needed. I can't wait to turn the computer on, no matter how tired I am.

We always want "more", don't we Steve? Even in blogging, we addicts can overdo sometimes ~ I have to consciously step away from time to time and notice life happening outside. Well done, my friend.

My 55 is posted here.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I dare say there are many ,many more. But now I can only speak for myself. Two on the road of the blogsphere addiction.
Great 55 PEEP

Steve...As you know there are far worse addictions.
But anything left unchecked can keep you from enjoying 'real life'.
Excellent 55 My Friend.
Thanks for being such an inspiration...G

Fantastic 55

Wonder what it is about writing and the catharsis it brings. But it feels good to get it all down on paper.

Tall Kay said...

I loved this one! And what a great picture to go along with a story we can all relate to...MORE! Happy Friday wishes to you!

Nessa said...

Sounds like you are addicted to life. I can relate to your 55.

Death and mayhem in my 55 HERE.

Indigo said...

Unlike the older monkeys, blogging is such sweet surrender isn't it? How else would I have met such a wonderful person such as yourself? (Hugs)Indigo

Kerrie said...

I can relate. I have very obssesive compulsive tendancies and you have to be careful where you channel them. I think we are safe with Blogging.

Cat said...

Great 55!!!

Monkey Man said...

Boy, I can so relate. This is truly an addiction. But dare I say a healthy one. Working the brain and building relationships. Thanks to G-Man for pulling us together. My 55 is also up.

enchantedoak said...

Like Monkey Man said, dare I say blogging is a healthy addiction? Working the brain, building the writing skills, forming relationships... all good stuff. I've enjoyed your comments on my blog and the blogs of others, so you are making a difference. Be at peace.
