Rockets and Wings - 55

"Hang on" he thought. "This is going to be a rough ride!"

Grasping the sides attempting to keep his seat while the rockets fired below.

In these moments regrets and memories flood like swollen rivers - eyes redden - sweat beads.

The evening before rushes in and he thinks:

"Why did I eat 23 wings last night!?!?!?"

Sorry, this just flowed out of my 7 year old mind this morning, my bad to all.

Tell a story in 55 words and post the link here with G-man for Flash Friday 55!  Come and play.

  18. This hazard of space travel has not received the attention it deserves on G-Man's list or anywhere else! Thanks for the chuckles.

  19. .... a 7 year old boy's "potty" humor lives in men of all ages! I will NEVER forget driving a van full of 5th grade boys to a bowling birthday party. About a 20 mile round trip and boy, was I shocked at how many bathroom jokes there are AND how a fart is considered to be FUNNY! Hmm... I grew up with ALL girls, no brothers.
