55 Flash Fiction Friday - Dark Waters

Holding his breath, the plunge caused a splash. The water was dark, but he was desperate, the flow of matters was being impeded and he wasn't about to allow that. With an undulating motion, his actions were smooth and sure. Then relief.
He asked himself, "What do my neighbors eat to stop up my toilet?"

hah! Oh, that's horribly funny. I hope for your sake that it's fiction. If not, you have my sympathy.

I'm up, too. I know you know where to find me, but in case you forgot, I'm here.

Snow,
I've had it happen after only flushing after a pee. This is life in an apartment.

Big G,
Indeed, were it not for the plumber's friend, I'd be the plumber's friend or customer anyway.

` Ha! That was such an awesome twist ending! I like your flash fictions! I read it to Director Nathan Lee and he thought it was awesome, if that means anything.

` PS have paintings up.

S E E Quine,
I don't really know who Director Nathan Lee is, I tried Google and came up with thousands of hits. If someone enjoyed it, then I'm pleased.
I'm certainly enjoying the creativity 55s elicit. So tell me more about Director Nathan Lee, is he a director at WSU? What is he director of? Is he the Nathan Lee of Seattle Weekly? Or is he movie Director Nathan Lee?

Nice one, Charles--I always enjoy the ones with the funny or interesting twist at the end. And let's be honest, who among us hasn't had a stopped up toilet? *jtj3 looks around, realizes he is only one with hand up*...

Oh...er, uh, nevermind...

Have a great new year, Charles!

Jim,
You have a great New Year, too. In fact, have more than one.

Charles,
May peace break into your house and
may thieves come to steal your debts.
May the pockets of your jeans become
a magnet of $100 bills. May love stick
to your face like Vaseline and may
laughter assault your lips! May your
clothes smell of success like smoking
tires and may happiness slap you
across the face and may your tears be
that of joy. May the problems you had
forget your home address!
In simple words ...........
May 2008 be the best year of your life!!!

Thank you much, Kind Sir. May your year be better than any of your previous best and may all the following years better better than the ones before them.
