Flash fiction 55, 2/18/11

I visited G-man this morning to see an array of terrific
creatures. I was in the mood for thievery -so-
My Mythological Beast:

         A fuzzy, silver thing
        with lots of legs and arms
akin to a milk weed seed-
Only far larger, stronger
and faster- can zip
into a crevice anywhere
 fly and attack just like a sneeze!
Will grab a leg outdoors
or drown you in a swimming pool;
  slide in bed-
zap and freeze your dream!

Izzy...?
I loved your beastly story!
Now I'll be scared of those spooky milkweeds from now on.
Most Excellent 55 My Friend.
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

I'm not sure I'm very fond of your mythological beast -- it sounds gorgeous but like a trickster with a cruel sense of humor. I don't want that thing near my dreams!
But I am fond of your 55.

As the English say..."beastly" I rarely ever dream but I think this creature might have gotton ahold of a few of my wife's.
Thanks for stopping by...I wrote you a response to your interesting question.

Anything that attacks like a sneeze is VERY scary! LOL

Yikes- is right -- Oh this is awesome, love a good scare... reminds me of Ebenezer Scrooge when he met Marley the ghost: "You may be an undigested bit of beef,.... There's more of gravy than of grave about you, whatever you are!"

Oh great....I would read this just before heading off to bed! Maybe if I tell myself (before shutting off the light) to dream about the mythological beast as an angel-in-disguise I can trick the nightmares. :)
