55 word microfiction – Wednesday Writing

I found out about 55 Fiction from Metafilter.  “55 Fiction is a form or microfiction with a few rules, including a limitation to 55 words.”  There are a couple of websites with the name, although apparently unrelated to the original 55 word contest. 

I thought, what the heck, could be fun:

The frigid office is a shocking contrast to the jungle outside.  The hairs on my legs stand up and grow faster.

“Please, can we turn it up, just three degrees?”  68 sounded temperate.

“No can do, pretty lady.  We turn the temp up, the jungle comes inside.”

I look down at my legs.  “Too late.”

  1. HA! I empathize emphatically! Very nicely done.

  2. Nice! Hope you post more in the future, would love to read them.

    I’ve been hearing quite a bit about 55 word fiction and other forms of flash fiction over the past two years. Micro-fiction/flash fiction seems tailor made for tweets – think I might try my hand at it over on Twitter.

What do *you* have to say?
