Hot Flash – Remote

“You’ve going where?” Missy’s mouth dropped, eyes alert. Red hair frizzled and mushroomed around her blotchy face.

“It’s a guys’ weekend. Fishing, eating, drinking a few brew skis.”

“You don’t do fishing—and a remote island?”

“I’ll have my cell, Hun.”

“I’m guessing no service…”

George cracked a Cheshire smile.

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!

  12. Good story. The picture reminded me of when I was a boy. My first fishing rod had one of those simple reels but what I really really wanted was a spinning reel like the second. I saved my pocket money for weeks until I could afford one.

  14. Tess – You never cease to amaze me with your ability to paint so many images with so few words. I think perhaps this guy might be digging himself into a hole he won’t be able to get out of easily.

  15. No wonder Missy has a blotchy face living with this man – oh no, that cheshire smile is no good, no good at all… fabulous piece once again 🙂

  16. Oh, dear. Brewskis, remote location, bad influences, and no cell service. Somebody ends of killing a hooker, right?

  18. You know, I’ve heard this no service before. I think it’s best we don’t know what he’s up to.

    • Gotcha.
      Remote spots / islands may very well not have service. Canada is a large country with miles of uninhabited areas. This guy MAY very well be up to something else and doesn’t want the wife to check up on him…easier to ignore her. 🙂
