AAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Oh my God, Mark, you kill me! If this is not the funniest, most clever (smart-a*s) little flash... I wish I had a six for it. :)))))))))

    Thanks Dawn - I was worried that I didn't perhaps adequately communicate the twist at the end - glad it came through.

This looks like the work of Mark Valentine, the humour is clever, the dialogue slick and the 75 words spot on, I'm just wondering in I can match the word count, nope fell short! Well done, an excellent job, good luck, blessings, Roy

I think this is a clever entry for the 75 Words Flash Fiction contest.
Your short story is told within the story and uses the word count to change the ending.
Well done and I wish you lots of luck with the contest.
Sharon

I like this. The economy of words is very appropriate to the subject, and I was satisfied by the ending. I would have liked a name for the protagonist

    Thanks for the review. I thought about giving the protagonist a name, but I chose to go with "the protagonist" as a way of calling attention to the fact that the thing to pay attention to was the fact that this was a story, because, in the end, it was not anything that happened in the story that saved the protagonist, but the very fact that it was a story with a finite word count.

Hehehehehe! I loved it Mark!!! What a great turn of events there at the end... saved by a sneeze! ... now, was it real do you think? or was it a "Memorex" sneeze? In either case, it was word 74... a lifesaver! Hahaha! Wonderful! :)
