Flat Flannery Friday #2

Posted on

It’s time again for Flat Flannery Friday.  If you’re saying to yourself, “what in the hell is that”, then you can click here to get caught up.

This week finds Flat Flannery trekking to Berkeley, California, to visit with Jillsmo, from Yeah.  Good Times.  Sadly, I cannot report that all was hunky dory in hippieville.  There’s something dark going on in the land of Birkenstocks.

You see, during Flanny’s visit, she bore witness to some questionable events.  Of course, one would certainly expect any visit involving Jillsmo to be questionable.  It seems that on one day, while Flanny was enjoying the shade of a large tree, she saw Jillsmo spying on her neighbor, and eavesdropping on their phone call.  It was certainly in poor taste, to say the least.

Things went further downhill the next morning.  While Flanny sat in a local bagel shop, people watching out the window as she is prone to do, she witnessed Jillsmo, up to no good again.  Right there on the street, Jillsmo verbally assaulted an environmental activist who was trying desperately to spread the word about the dangers of radiation.  Flanny couldn’t believe her crooked eyes.

That evening, she confronted Jillsmo.  Of course, Jillsmo made excuses for her behavior.  But she had an evil plan brewing.  It started with liquor, which should be no surprise, since it is Jillsmo, after all.

But this was no party.  After Jillsmo convinced Flannery to consume copious amounts of liquor, she tried to “get rid of her,” to keep the sordid details of the visit a secret.

Yes, she tried to feed Flanny to a snake.  Let this be a lesson that you can’t trust every blogger you meet online!

Luckily, Flanny made a narrow escape, hitched a ride to the airport with the environmental activist, and has already embarked on her next adventure.

Jillsmo, however, remains at large in Berkeley.



About Flannery

Kid, husband, dogs, my mother, full-time job, maximum stress, minimal relaxation...sooner or later I had to vent. AND we moved from California to Texas. I could start a whole other blog about that.

  2. Flat Flannery will be spending some time with me on the East Coast this week. I will keep her away from hippies and good for nothing reptiles (redundant?)


    That sounds about right.

    At least FF didn’t get (almost) run over like some other winged wildlife we know about….jilsmo has a soft spot for FF after all.

  4. Too good! Well done! Glad Flanny made it out of Berkeley in one piece!!!

  5. WTF?! Jillsmo has a reptile? This changes everything… I withdraw my ire over failing to meet the deadline – professional courtesy to Jillsmo’s pet and all…

  6. I can’t get over how that realistic, proportional, life-sized rendering of Flannery is so utterly dwarfed by the bottle of Smirnoff. I guess Jillsmo drinks more than I thought.

  7. So this is how jillsmo treats her houseguests – get them drunk on cheap vodka and feed them to a snake. I may have to use this trick myself next Christmas.

  8. So has Flat Flanny made it out of people’s kitchens yet? I thought she was supposed to go to points of interests, landmarks, tourist spots, etc. I’m gonna take her to a famous Chicago pizzeria and have her soak up my pepperoni grease.
