Friday 55 Flash Fiction #158 Peeping Tom......

He tried to be quiet, didn't want to disturb them.

A chink in the curtains should he look?

He felt bad about it, but he couldn't help himself.

There they were, watching the TV.

I suppose they've shut the curtains to stop the glare on the TV screen

thought Tom as he cleaned the windows.

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.

Hilarious! Our windowcleaner often turns up unexpected! Always have to race about closing blinds! lol!

Beach Bum said...

Don't have to worry about window cleaners here but we do have people who come to read our electric meters sometimes and they have a habit of showing up at the worst possible times.

Like the sunny day my wife and I stayed home from work and started "hugging" on the couch with the windows open.

Valerie said...

Brilliant, but tough luck on the window cleaner.

Well if you were only 'hugging' no harm done Beach LOL

Yes, he didn't get to see much Valerie ;)

Could be Brian

I'll take a look Diane but not promising I'll do it.

Indeed Maggie

"thought Tom as he cleaned the windows."


You have no idea how paranoid I get when my apartment building has the window washers come out and wash our windows once a year. I have all my mini blinds in my apartment shut tight, so they can't see in!!

Fab 55 Flash, m'dear!

Have a super weekend....X

Pheromone Girl said...

I often wondered what those high rise window washers do to keep from getting bored. Now I know!

Akelamalu said...

Cheers Jingle :)

Thanks Cloudia so pleased it made you smile.

Well, no-one would want to be caught watching Jeremy Lyle would they Cheshire Wife? LOL

I'm sure our Thom would never stoop so low G-man :)

Oh yes, we've all seen 'Confessions of a Window Cleaner Spiky LOL

Oh Thom you are naughty!

LOL I can just imagine you sneaking round your apartment whilst the window cleaners try to peer in through the blinds Ron :)

I imagine they do see some sights occasionally Pheremone Girl ;)
