Friday 55 Flash Fiction #173 Message....





She kept picking her cell phone up fiddling with it.


“Are you expecting a message?” he asked.


“No, no, just trying the apps on my new phone”.


“You seem to be getting a lot of alerts” he said.


“I’m on Twitter” she said, “it’s great!”


He wished he’d never bought her the damn smart phone!


Not exactly fiction as I think this is how MWM probably feels this week. LOL

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.

Finding Pam said...

I don't want a twitter account. I wouldn't know what to do with it.

Great Flash Fifty-five. You are so good at this challenge.

Akelamalu said...

Luckily MWM has one too AJ so he can't complain too much about me! LOL

So you got one too eh G? ;)

Yes I know what you mean Brian. When I'm living life I just dump the blog, facebook and Twitter! LOL

Yes I've got a smart phone Daryl and I haven't a clue what FourSquare is honey please don't confuse me. LOL

I wanted to have a go on Twitter, now I wish I hadn't bothered Pam LOL

Modern living, eh? I'd feel better if I had my old phone back, it never gave alerts!

Banker Chick said...

I have one, and Mr BC took it on one of his trips to Missouri and I only see it when he starts playing with it.

Nara Malone said...

I know I'm on twitter a lot. Helps me get my writing done. Hard to believe I know. Love my Android phone.

Melanie said...

I just wanted to tell you thank you for the sweet words about my tattoo on Daft Scots Lass's blog. I wasn't sure if I should put it out there, but I am now glad I did...and I am following you now too!

Ron said...

And this is why I deleted my Twitter account a year ago. I spent sooo much time Twittering!

Have an awesome weekend, m'dear!

Pheromone Girl said...

It's the opposite for me. I bought the Mister a smart phone for Christmas last year, now he's always playing Mahjongg or something...

tony said...

a Phone Is Only As Smart As It's Owner!

Dianne said...

I got rid of my Twitter account too
I never had anything mundane enough to say!! :)

Akelamalu said...

Sometimes I wish I just used mine as a phone Bee!

Alerts can be a pain for sure Valerie!

Ah you know what to get him for Christmas now BankerChick LOL

I'm fed up with Twitter already Nara LOL

Oh welcome Melanie, I meant every word my dear. x

I think I may be deleting mine too before very long Ron ;)

I much prefer FB to Twitter Gautami

Maybe you should get yourself one too Pheromone Girl?

That's true Tony maybe that's why mine doesn't seem to work properly! LOL

I know what you mean Dianne LOL

Mama Zen said...

That is totally how I feel about my husband's phone!

Great 55!

cheshire wife said...

I know the feeling as husband has one. I have threatened to confiscate it at times, it irritates me so much.

secret agent woman said...

As much as I love my iPhone, I have absolutely no desire to get involved with Twitter.

Electric Addict said...

people can't get their eyes away from their phones these days. imagine when battery life improves :(

Beach Bum said...

Can't deal with twitter, I run my mouth far too much and cannot limit myself to 150 characters.

Akelamalu said...

I can understand that Mama Zen. We have settled back into mostly ignoring our phones now the novelty has worn off! LOL

They certainly can be irritating Cheshire Wife - phones and husbands!

We just wanted to see what all the fuss was about SAW - not worth the bother. ;)

Yes you're right Electric Addict, it's only battery life that hinders some people.

I'm used to writing stories in 140 characters so that's not a problem to me Beach but I prefer to write a lot more! ;)

Linda said...

There are indeed way too many distracting apps for phones these days! I use my FB app the most followed by Words With Friends but other than that, I try to leave the darned alone except for texting which I seem to do an awful lot of!

Morning said...

excellent 55,
the last line makes it perfect!

Akelamalu said...

I know exactly what you mean Linda!

Thanks Morning :)
