Realy Important man-55

Flash Fiction 55
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.Here is today's story:

The Really Important Man

He worked with some of the best weekly programs.
Usually you only read his name in the credits.
But he was on the Letterman show talking to the star.
He had the star in stitches.

He was very, very good at what he did.
His work made the show.
He was a truly great



tailor.





Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the twenty sixth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Sir Laughsalot knows who is robbing the castle of good King Underwear
Tis another noble Knight.
The knight robs by dark of night.
But Sir Laughsalot will never tell.
He is prevented by the code.
It is an ancient code.
Every knight is bound by it.
It is the code of the thin metal line.

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

Well done. A Tailor...I kept trying to guess who it was...Clever. And I think that's a good code to have to follow myself. Have a great weekend :)

I hope Sir Laughsalot's metal isn't too thin. That could be dangerous in battle.

A tailor keeping them in stitches, well done! LOL

I'm shocked at Sir Laughsalot's secret-keeping but well, a code's a code I suppose! Can't he stop the man?

Enjoyed your 55s!

Eaton Bennett said...

Hi Dr. John, the fact that I'm an Aussie is probably the reason I only get the Tailor and keeping them in stitches bit...but Sir Laughsalot is excellent. Thanks for visiting and commenting on my 55. :))
