#FlashFictionFriday Sept 14, 2017 Adventures With Ben and Jerry #FlashFic

Flash Fiction Friday

Today’s Flash Fiction Friday scene uses this lovely image of two men kissing, and the word left in the comments of last week’s post:


I figured I’d go with an Adventures with Ben and Jerry drabble for this word. Seems like that duo is who comes to mind whenever I’m faced with a need to do something out of the ordinary.

Click here for more story scenes featuring Ben and Jerry.

This is a precisely 100-word drabble told from Ben’s 3rd-person POV:

Adventures with Ben and Jerry

Ben grimaced as he and Jerry walked by the mall’s Chick-fil-A on their way to the Burger King. “My blood pressure still rises whenever I see one of those.”

“We can’t have that.” Jerry stopped in the middle of the food court and waggled his eyebrows. “Come here.”

“Huh? Why?”

Jerry pulled him in close and whispered, “I’m going to bring the interstice between our lips down to zero,” right before he planted a good long kiss on Ben’s unsuspecting mouth.

Ben grinned when Jerry pulled away. “Problem solved, but…interstice?”

Jerry shrugged. “It was the Merriam-Webster word of the day.”

Leave as many prompt words as you like in the comments, but I’ll only promise to use one from each contributor in next week’s post (although I’ll try to use them all).

    1. Thank you! Nice words. Hmm…should I go with champagne (probably your intention) or use it to describe a bubble bath?

      1. I’ve learned my lesson to not try to steer you in any direction, because you never go where I want you to anyway, you obstinate woman 😉😁 So do what you want. But if you’re going with bubble bath, I’ll be eager to see who gets to take a bath in pink bubbles 😁

        1. Teehee! You finally got your way with “I am your father,” 🙂 although I guess we’re still awaiting Ed’s reaction to that, aren’t we? I don’t think “pink bubbly” will help me out there, though. 😉
