Friday 55 Flash Fiction #136 Contraband.....


Waiting for their luggage by the carousel, Bev noticed the sniffer dogs.



Having returned from Columbia, she was nervous,


Wiping away perspiration from her top lip, she whispered to Sean


"What if the dogs take an interest in our cases, considering what's in them?"


"Don't worry" he said


"they're looking for drugs not extra cigarettes!"




Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.

Hmmm, Brian stole my line. That's what I get for being so late! Oh well, I'll say it any way: as long as those ciggies aren't full of whacky tobaccy all should be fine!

So there aren't any "Vice dogs" trained yet? Good. I'd fear the amount of chocolate they'd find on me. Well done friend!

Jannie Funster said...

Really? Ciggys are cheaper in Columbia? I too was thinking coffee.

Super 55!!

Naughty travelers, but not too naughty I suppose.

secret agent woman said...

I thought it was going to be coffee!

Akelamalu said...

So glad you enjoyed it Ron x

Technically I suppose it is Alice.

That's true AJ LOL

I'd be interested to know if the dogs would sniff out salami Lady's Life :)

To a hardened smoker I think it is Cheshire Wife. Thankfully I don't smoke any more.

Of course it does KB ;)

I don't smoke Spiky but I do trying to bring back lots for my Dad - he's 86 and has smoked since he was 12! No chance of him giving up now.

Precisely Quilly ;)

Thanks Mama Zen :)

Haha you were on the wrong track G-man x

Oh no surely they won't get dogs to sniff out chocolate Hope?

I think ciggies are cheaper everywhere except Britain Jannie!

Me too Cloudia ;)

No, not TOO naughty Trav ;)

Ah you were on the same track as
G-man SAW :)
