Hot Flash – Crazed

Skinny and Ichabod-like, Herman hated Val, the dreamboat. His teaching methods baffled everyone. Val questioned an explanation; Herman hurled chalk. Swearing clouded the air;  students booed.

“Get the principal,” someone said.

“You’re crazed. Take your hooks offa me.”

Herman hoisted Val by the scruff, like refuse, onto a coat hook.

This is the new Fall Quarter of Flash in the Pan. The theme is Disturbed.

The word limit for Crazed is 50 words. I used them all.

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  6. If he can’t keep his hands off his pupils, let’s hope he’s fired on the spot.

    Statistically, I think those who are ridiculous-looking or ugly tend to be victims of violence, not the perpetrators. We’ve just learnt the association of virtue with good looks, and evil with bad – remember the witches? As we “learn” this through stories, maybe it’s best to avoid reinforcing negative stereotypes?

  9. I’m right there, so close all I see is the face, the anger. I sure don’t see the big picture. I can’t wait.

    Do you ever turn these into stories? Novellas?

  10. Hi Tess, Isn’t it funny how so many of us ask you the same questions; what happens next and when will you make a full story for us of your many creative writings? 🙂

  12. We used to have a teacher who would throw tennis balls at someone who talked during class, but he was such a bad aim that whenever he went to throw the ball we all ducked since who knows where it would go. Kept us on our toes, but I don’t think I learned much from him. Too busy ducking.
