Friday 7/30/10 - "INCONSOLABLE"

FLASH FICTION FRIDAY 55





"INCONSOLABLE"



She was his first love, he her second.
They were inseparable. Love deepened
.
He left for college a year before her.

Not one letter or call came. He dropped off the face of the earth.

She was inconsolable. What was wrong with her? She felt worthless!

Many years later she understood he was spineless, gutless.

it's almost hilarious, what we will do to ourselves as we try and figure out what we did wrong! not that i'm against a thorough soul searching, i'm all for that. but just as you wrote about here, sometimes the feller is simply a big loser...so glad she figured it out :) a very powerful and to the point 55, pg!

I think people need to be straight. It is much less hurtful to just be truthful.

At the same time I tell PG that she writes a "mean blog" (meaning a GOOD one!) I wish to correct that old man mr G-Man, who is deteriorating rapidly. He wrote that I am 87 YEARS old, and I am only 77. because HE is 87, he wishes EVERYONE to be that age.

I hope you all, you all, you all, you all, you all understand. He is one sickkkkkkk-o blogger (but he's NICE--grin!)!

This was a painful painful read.

I remember that spiny feeling. I didn't like it. Still don't.

God save us!
