Friday Flash 55

I sit across from you gazing into your eyes. You glance back, almost shyly, with a look I endeavor to discern. Is it invitation or rejection? Should I advance or retreat? I slowly caress the rocket in my pocket, feeling its power. "All in", I announce, as I turn up my aces!

Told you I love poker!(For those of you that are not familiar with poker slang-a pair of aces are refered to as "pocket rockets")

Yikes! I was not aware of the poker term! I had a completely different scene pictured, which is what you intended, I'm sure. Craftily done.

Nice to see you back son!
Great 55, and I hope the reason for your return isn't because you lost all your money playing poker...hehehe
Thanks for playing...G

thx for stopping by. that was a good 55. i'm sure there are other things called 'pocket rockets' lol but until you said something about the aces, i didn't know it was poker! lol

Hi, Mike. Clever, clever! I found you through the 55ers.Mine is up. I wrote a piece called the Old Farts Club last summer about hubby and his poker players. You might get a kick out of it. We're talking OLD farts!

Mike!! You are BACK!! Yay! I have missed you.
I haven't been blogging as much as usual either, but I'm still around.

One of my friends at work is a poker fiend as well, so I get the obsession!!

See you soon. :)

Hi, Mike. I tried to leave a comment here before and it didn't seem to "take." Pretty clever! 55s are fun.

Thanks for clearing that up...I was wondering what I'd stumbled across for a minute there, hehe! Loved it. Thanks for commenting on my first 55, I'll have another crack at one on Friday.

Very nicely done and I am familiar with pocket rockets. Although they may be nice to have they are not the guaranteed winner. Welcome back to blogging

Queenie said...

I believe you thousands wouldn't. Just popping by to see how your doing, 'tut tut' hope your a winner. Going to start posting again soon, mum is getting sorted now so I think I should have more time. So till then take care...

Queenie said...

Just wondering what you're up to?
