Heavy Headed Hijinx – 100 Word Flash Fiction

After she plopped down in the recliner and rubbed her tired feet, the hallway clock chimed twelve times. What a crazy day. So many friends had attended and she smiled knowing new acquaintances had been made. As she looked around at the empty wine and champagne bottles, beer cans and glasses, her heavy eyelids shut.


She found herself floating away in a dream, as light on her feet as a ballerina. She flitted among the clouds until a faraway voice pulled her back.


“Susie! Look at these views!”

She had drifted off while checking out her blog on an I-pad.

I am hosting virtual blog party this week, so leave a link in the comment section of Use Me and Abuse Me Day II and meet a few new bloggers by checking out theirs! Make sure to introduce yourself and tell them Susie sent you!

I gotta try this-

        1. If I post 3 times a week, then I post MWF. If I only post twice then it depends…. I never post on weekends.

          I am thinking that since my fiction group is posting now on Thursdays, that I may do my own thing and continue to post 100 word flash on Fridays, but ask anyone who wants to write one to post their link in the comment section.


  1. Hi,
    Loved the story, had a smile at the ending, well done. 🙂
    I just loved the old time video, who would of thought that people skied behind a Blimp. 😀


  2. Loved the surprise ending! Which seemed quite believable even though it was fiction. I’ve only written flash fiction once – It was about a flasher in Central Park and how when he opened up his trench coat and displayed his pole, all the women were happy and used him for a game of ring toss, which just isn’t believable at all!

    Which is why I’ve written flash fiction only once, cause I think the name of the genre confused me… and my version of flash fiction didn’t go over very well.

    Blimp water skiing looks like great fun, and should be brought back. People just really need to get over that whole Hindenburg incident, cause that was a long time ago and the technology has greatly improved since then. So we should all be able to go blimp water skiing without fear, since driving to work is far more dangerous and not nearly as much fun.

    Oh, and Susie? GREAT PARTY!!! 🙂


      1. Hmm… “Sick and Wrong and You’ll LOVE it!” Why I might start a new blog and use that for the title! 😀

        You’re an inspiration, Susie, and thanks for your appreciation of my questionable humor! LOL


    1. Thanks! The video is solid gold. I can’t believe they did that. All I can think of is when I have gone waterskiing and had to yell, “HIT IT!” when I finally felt balanced. How did they hear them way up there?
      Have a great one too!


    1. I am sure they think we humans have brains the size of a pea even though they really do!

      Isn’t that the most ridiculous thing you have ever seen???? Hilarious!
      Thanks Laura!


  3. Great virtual party, Susie. Some of the new blogs I checked out are hilarious writers. Thanks for doing this. Let me know if you try that stunt! I’m sure you’ll get a great flash fiction story out of it! LOL!


  4. I’m sure that was some sort f extreme sport back in the day. However, I’m not past the men in one piece suits….even in black and white it aint pretty. LOVED the FF I was with you the whole time…excellent!


    1. Hahaha! I didn’t even think of that. To be honest I whipped this out yesterday in about two minutes. It usually takes me two days to write them! I just used my husband’s most frequently used expression while living in Colorado and for some reason it is always plural!
      I LOVE your idea. Dang!
      Thanks Rich!
      Did you write one?


    1. I know! That would not be fiction. I don’t even own an I-pad! Hahaha! I see them hot air ballooning outside my kitchen window every weekend that looks like fun!
      Thanks Nelle!


  5. Excellent party Susie. This weekend I’m going to check out fellow partygoers links. As for your FF video, I think I’d rather be water boarded than find myself participating in that water skiing with dirigible stunt.


    1. Water boarded instead of waters kiing??? Hahaha! I think it looks like a blast! “HIT IT!” As long as it didn’t get hit by a tail wind….. 🙂
      Thanks for coming to the party! The posts are wonderful. Something for everyone!


  6. The best thing about parties at Susie’s house is that they go on for days! I’m looking forward to meeting more of your interesting guests over the weekend. Thanks for the great party!


  7. Honestly, some people are so myopic! Going on about scenery when there are stats to check out. Get some perspective here!

    Watching that video, I wonder if anyone has ever attempted to water ski behind a light plane, or possibly a helicopter? Could be fun, although the second option might get messy if there are any ramps involved…

    I decided to do something a bit different this week. Hope you enjoy!


    1. Hahaha! Jake how are you! Danny and I are hoping to get to London in September….
      Myopic? It was only fiction Jake! I don’t even own an I-pad! Hahaha!
      Love your plane idea. Gotta try that one! HIT IT! YEEEEOOOOWWWWWWW!


      1. The myopic remark was aimed at whoever was talking about the view, not the Ipad owner! As a confirmed nerd and TV addict, I’m well aware of the hypnotic power of the humble screen.

        London’s a fun place, but occasionally difficult to navigate. The last time I visited, about four years ago, I got completely lost trying to locate my hotel after spending the day out. Took me about two hours to find it. So much for Google maps!


  8. Well, I’ve only “blimp-skiied,” as we blimpers call it, once. I just couldn’t hold the handstand as long as I wanted, so I gave it up. I continue to wake board with stealth fighters pulling me, though. 🙂


      1. I walked ten miles for Relay for Life on Friday night despite an ongoing battle with plantar fascitis. Needless to say I was laid up yesterday. But thanks to a lot of ice and ibuprofen, I will be back on the courts today.


        1. Are you watching the French Open final?

          I have an exercise for your feet that may help. You stand next to the counter and on a count of 5 go up on your toes, hold for 5, then come back down on a count of 5. I only had a problem with one foot so I hooked one foot behind the other and put all my weight on one foot.

          Such a great match!


            1. I love it too! He never gives up! I can relate to that kind of optimism.
              I set the DVR and hope it records the match since it will be 5AM here.

              I have a singles match tomorrow night and am hoping for an overdue win… wish me luck! I may get thrown in at #1 again to guaranty a team win with our stronger singles player at #2. I can’t wait until I am a solid 4.0 player and these matches get easier… 😛


              1. Oh, I’m wishing you all kinds of luck, Colorado. Fix things up for the other side of better, will ya? I’m sick of these kids acting as if they invented the sport along with Sharapova.


                1. Oh hey, I love playing the “younguns” since they have no patience. I know I have them when they start racket throwing or yelling at themselves in the first person!
                  By the way I love the expression “Fix things up…” Excellent. I will give the old college try! Remember that one?
                  Thanks Cayman!
