Flash Fiction Friday - Uh oh

By Kathleen Kimball-Baker
“Howard! Wake up!”
“Huh? Whaaa?”
“You were howling, for God’s sakes!”
“You mean like a dog?”
“More like a wolf!”
“Daphne, did you forget to take your sleeping pills?”
“Howard, I’m telling you, you howled. Like aaaawoooooooooo.”
“Woman, you’re the one who’s howling.”
“Howard! Your nose! Your teeth! What’s happening to you?”
“I . . . don’t . . . knooooooooooooooooooow . . .”

Thanks for providing the photo attribution, but please include a link to either the Flicke photo page or to my website at

Scout (the dog) says "Thanks for putting me on your story! Woof!"

You're right! A groaner 55!!! :-)

Kathleen said...

Ah, your Holiness G-Man, thank you for the dispensation! LOL!!!
We're a little different here in Minnesota, "kinda funny" to quote the movie Fargo, "you know, funny."
I NEVER forget to do my fact, I feel guilty as sin when I don't get to it. But sometimes, something's gotta give.

Kathleen said...

@dianne: not my photo, but the photographer left a comment!

Kathleen said...

@dan: you're a very kind man for saying this groaner was good!

Kathleen said...
