55 - So Many Adventures

Dancing through the artificially produced rain we litter the neighborhood with laughter and "ha ha's" to rival the French. 

Suddenly, amidst wildly shot arrows of water we dip and dodge attempting to avoid and be hit at the same time.

The mood changes, the moon is spotted, the adventure is now moon rocks for Mama.

Tell a story in 55 words. Give it a try or just read more, go see g-man.

My first attempt at 55 details a quick changing summer adventure around a sprinkler with my son.  Hopefully a decent account.


  1. Also, thanks to Brian at for encouragement to keep writing stuff, good or not!

  2. Oh, I second Brian's encouragement! You 55 made me picture kids enjoying a hot summer day and into evening, lost on an adventure. Some of my favorite memories are from that time, and you have evoked them. Very nice.

  3. ...attempting to avoid and be hit at the same time...
    Like this a lot - familiar feeling!

  4. thanks for the shout out austin...this was fun...great imagery...and so funny how quickly the adventure changes when you are playing with the little ones. great 55 my man!

  5. I especially liked "we litter the neighborhood with laughter and "ha ha's" to rival the French." I can just hear a snooty Fenchman laughing his nasal, disparaging laugh in reply.

  6. Kids giving you the excuse to be a kid again. I love this 55. My 55 is HERE .

  7. I think you did a fantastic job. I have written a 6 word story, but never a 55.

  8. nice I liked your fifty five and look forward to visiting again soon. Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments..
