Friday 55 Flash Fiction #157 Too noisy......


He couldn't understand what all the fuss was about.


What's the problem?


Those teenagers next door made lots of noise and he didn't complain.


And that baby next door by one, good grief, what a racket!


Just because it was 3am.


Maybe it would be better if I lived in the country.


"Cock-a-doodle-doo" he crowed.



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.

Heehee, that's very good. I used to love the sound of a cock crowing.

Flowerpot said...

Oh, city people just don't understand ;-)
Nice one.

Mama Zen said...

I'd rather have the rooster than the teenagers!

Good one, Ake!

I remember roosters crowing in the morning when I was growing up. For me it was always a comforting sound although I did not grow up on a farm. Now, these crazy suburbanites would freak if a rooster was close enough to be heard.

Jingle said...

love roosters better...
fun play on roles.

your 55 gives me a good chuckle.
Keep it up.

Steve Isaak said...

Great lead-up, laugh out loud/clever finish.

Gledwood said...

Do they mysteriously somehow know what time it is? Or just go off anytime anyhow..?

MorningAJ said...

Oh good for him! Let him crow!
Nice 55.

secret agent woman said...

Ha ha! I'm sure that's exactly how he sees it!

Windsmoke. said...

The world at large is too noisy no matter where you go these days, there's always something mechanical buzzing or clattering around :-).

Akelamalu said...

I quite like the sound too but not at 3 am Valerie LOL

Yes, next door is a bit too close for comfort Flowerpot ;)

That rooster did it on purpose Brian LOL

My eldest son keeps chickens and the eggs are wonderful Tony!

Well 5 am is better than 3 am Daryl ;)

LOL indeed Bee

I was wondering what response you would come up with G-man, thanks for being reserved. (wink)

You can buy alarm clocks that cock-a-doodle-do Ron!

LOL no they don't Anthony

Teenagers can be more troublesome for sure Mama Zen!

There are more and more people keep chickens in the suburbs here now Beach Bum so I guess people will have to get used to it. ;)

I'm pleased it made you smile Jingle :)

Cheers Steve

I think they just crow when they feel like it Gleds


I'll look into it Grandma


Glad you enjoyed it Belinda

I agree AJ but then I don't live next door. (wink)


I think so SAW

A crowing cock sounds much better than something mechanical though don't you think Windsmoke?

Dianne said...

Linda said...

Sorry I've not been by to visit lately, real life keeps getting in the way of my virtual one these days!

Loved the story as always - you have such a way with these things!

clean and crazy said...

roosters aren't supposed to live in the city!!

Akelamalu said...

Who knows Dianne? ;)

Glad you enjoyed it gautami

No apology needed Linda, I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

You're right Clean&Crazy, they should be in the country.
