This week’s Flash Fiction Friday is a drabble (a precisely 100-word story scene) featuring my recurring characters, Harrison and Mason, and using the word left in last week’s post (penile), and an image I found on wiki commons (links with the picture, below).
For more flash fiction (including more Adventures with Harrison and Mason), and bonus scenes from many of my published stories, check out the tabs in the menu at the top of the page.
Harrison turned his head and peered at Mason. The words had been muttered. The man lay on his stomach, his head to the side and eyes closed.
“Treasure trail.” Mason moved a little with the words. I mild kind of stretch one might make when half asleep.
Harrison nudged his husband. “You awake?”
“Wang.” The word was barely breathed.
Harrison snorted. “You’re a nut.”
“I’ll ‘penile’ you!” Harrison rolled and draped an arm across Mason’s back.”
One of Mason’s eyes cracked open as a grin spread across his face. “About time you figured it out.”

Word of the day: sneeze (because that’s what I’ve been doing all day. Woe is me 🙂 )
Thanks! Blame NaNoWriMo for the drabble rather than a longer option. Although, those are fun sometimes just for the sake of it. I hope you feel better soon—colds are awful! 🤒
Ha! Once again I had to look it up. Urban Dictionary to the rescue! 😀
I only trust Urban Dictionary for slang. Took me until the 11th definition to get the original meaning. Merriam-webster.com is so more reliable there.
I’d never heard of any of it before. Is this the one you mean, then?
muzzy(adj) muzzier, muzziest
1 mentally confused; muddled
2 blurred; indistinct.
he’s a little muzzy
i can’t see that, it is to muzzy
Good. It’s the one I liked the best, anyway. 🙂
