Friday 55 Flash Fiction #181 ChristmasTrifle......



He crept downstairs heading for the kitchen.

 “She’s behind you?” called the parrot.

 “Oh no she’s isn’t” he said, lifting the trifle out of the fridge.

“Oh yes she is” said parrot.

“We shouldn’t have let you watch that panto” he told the parrot.

“Leave that trifle alone, you’re on a diet” said his wife.



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.

I had to look up 'Panto' and it was sort of what I thought it was. This is a particularly good Flash 55. I was laughing out loud and woke the dogs up.
