The Speed of Old -Flash Friday

My great-grandchildren enjoy mocking me: “Grandma, you’re so OLD!” as they zip about the sky. But my two feet take me where I need to go just fine, thank you.

“Why are you typing on that dinosaur? It takes forever, I feel like you’re disconnecting from me,” my daughter scolds as we trade recipes. I’d have her know that 130 words per minute was blazing fast in my youth!

Everything changed fast, like a day is a thousand years. Maybe I am too slow? 125 years might not be “old” yet, but I remember the days when children still scampered and we had to use computers for internet.

Still got it.

“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” Still got it.

FLASH! It’s Flash Friday, the day when Seeking New Earth authors write short stories up to 1000 words (“flash fiction”) or 110 words (“microfiction”). Both are sure to instigate the imagination and stimulate the synapses. Did you like what you read? Want to explore the story some more? Or maybe you want to try your own hand at some flash fiction?
