Friday 55 Flash Fiction #13 Urgent Message

Urgent Message

His mobile phone gave the signal for an incoming text.

He glanced and the message, it was urgent.
Trying not to go into too much detail, he replied.
“On my way”.

He looked up and was surprised to see a truck heading towards him………

because his car was on the wrong side of the road.

I often tell people "If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk!"...

G-Man said...

You are meeting Queenie?
Meeting bloggers that become friends is so much fun, I know from personal experiance..
Chilling 55 though Ake!!!
Great job...G

barman said...

See it is bad enough talking on the phone when you are driving but to be texting too... That would be just to scary. Great 55.

You and Queenie have a great time. I can hear that wine a chillin' all the way over here.

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

Ah, yes. Texting is much more dangerous that cell phone talking.

Have a fun weekend.

Awesome and WISE 55 Akelamalu!!!

Thanks for sharing!

julia said...

Another twisty ending! You're excellent with those!

3 days till the blogoversary...

Mary said...

This fiction could actually be fact. Cell phones are not something we should be using while driving. Great job.

Be sure to drop by and enter my Easter giveaway. It will be fun to read your post.


Skittles said...

Have a wonderful weekend!

See, I've always said cell phones are a driving hazard.

la bellina mammina said...

Great 55!
I'm jealous you get to meet Queenie :-( but ENJOY! :-)

smarmoofus said...

So scary! Have a great weekend (it's nearly over now, though, isn't it?), and no driving-while-texting. I won't hesitate to report you for DWT if it will save your life. I wonder if that will become a well-known acronym... "I got pulled over for DWT."

I'm up.

Nea said...

Have a good visit and have fun.....hurry back. :)

Bankerchick said...

Now that is a 55 with a message.

Dave said...

Hope your weekend went great. I shall be back! :-)

Akelamalu said...

Seems odd replying to you Queenie when I've spent all weekend with you! Great time babe - thanks. xx

If you had a good a time as we did Flowerpot you're lucky!

Hope the party went well Miss U - presumably it was for Dan'S birthday?

Thanks Mona. :)

You crack me up Buffalo x

Queenie and I have been friends for 18 years g-man! I did a post about how we met just recently - see Wayne and the Turkish Beauty. :)

I know Barman, there was a case in our papers just this week - which is what prompted my 55. It's truly scary!

Thanks Bee - we did!

It makes me so mad when I see people using their cell phones whilst driving Nick - it's just too dangerous!

We had a great time thanks RC x

Yes it does Odat. Hope you're bearing up honey. xx

It seems to be happening more and more Heather unfortunately. thanks. x

Thanks Mimi, I have lots of photos and will be doing a post about what a great time we had with Queenie. x

Yes Ciara it happens tooooooo often! We had lots of hugs - here's one for you too honey. ((hug)).

Thanks Bindi we did. :)

Cheers CG x

Aw thanks Jo xx

We did Dianne ;)

Glad you liked it Little Wing I almost crushed Queenie with all the hugs!

Thank you Elween we did our best! :)

Moi you and I are retiring the same year! Queenie and I have known each other for 18 years - long before either of us started blogging. :)

Ron I have a confession to make - I had far too much wine!

Oh you're too kind Julia thankyou. x

Unfortunately it is more fact than fiction these days Mary! :(

We had a fab time Skittles thanks. xx

It's actually against the law here to use a cell phone whilst driving Citizen but people do it all the time! - CRAZY!!

Queenie and I meet up quite often Bella and we do always enjoy! :)

Yep it's over now :( Smarmoofus but we had a great time. I'd report anyone I saw texting whilst driving too!

Thanks Neaxx

Glad you liked it Bankerchick :)

It did Dave - see you soon. x
