Upside/Downside of being single in the age of enlightenment…….. Flash Fiction

 
Upside: Jessica made such advances in her personal growth that one day she morphed into a glowing ball of light. 

Downside: Sex became a lot harder.

Hmmm, that is a downside. Although, it would make it a lot easier to see what you're doing.

You make me smile. :)

hee hee hee Laurita. This made me laugh and laugh when I thought of it. I love this idea. If we're all working on ourselves, what happens when we get there?

You make me smile too my lovely friend.

*smooch*

This made me giggle. The simplest ideas that pop into our minds are often the ones that make the best fiction.
Plus, there's a bright side to the downside, as Laurita pointed out ;)

Karen from Mentor said...

I work to keep myself filled with golden light Estrella. But if I ever find myself sliding into a state where I might be trading in my body for a higher plane..... I'll litter or something. I'm addicted [to paraphrase bruce springsteen] to the pleasure the flesh does surely hold.

*BIG SMILE*
*smooch* thanks for stopping in m'dear.

The whole morphing and glowing ball of light thing made me think of the movie "Cocoon."

But then you started on about sex while I was thinking of Don Ameche and Wilford Brimley...

You and Laurita both gave me a big old Friday smile as well :)

Karen from Mentor said...

HA! well I hear that Don Ameche was quite the dish back in the day.

I'm sticking my fingers in my ears and humming to drown out all the rest of what you said....

Oh, this made me giggle. Another upside, just think of the money she will save on light bulbs. :)
